Long overdue, this blog entry follows a ski trip some friends and I went on in January to an area of Japan where not many foreigners (or Japanese) have skied. What we got was some great Japow in Japanuary all to ourselves.
Next in my series of blogs on our recent trip to Europe, I write about our adventure ski-touring the Aletsch Glacier in in Jungfrau, Switzerland off the back of the Eiger. This is part 1 in a 3 part series-within-a-series. Enjoy!
The Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival is an annual event traditionally celebrating the 1st born son of the family but in more recent years, a good ski season. Since it coincided with a rainstorm, it was a chance for us to experience several days of Japanese Après ski.
After a December 4th tumble in a boulder field broke 3 of my ribs and a hair-bone fracture in my arm, I was sidelined during one of the most stellar early seasons in Whistler’s history. After a painful month of waiting, I finally was able to get back on the mountain.
High on the bucket list of any serious ski bum is the chance to hit the slopes during the summer in South America. Not only are the mountains super high and steep, the relaxed and festive Latin culture is a perfect complement to the sport of skiing.
