Last Day in Niseko

And so all good things must come to an end, and with that the snowboarding leg of this journey. Its been a great 12 days, with variable conditions all the way through (sunshine, blizzard etc). We didn't get any fresh snow the last few days, but its snowing heavily tonight (if only we had a few more days!).

Australia Day was fun. The day was spent at Moiwa with a combination of drills in the morning and gate training in the afternoon, all to the soundtrack of the Triple J Hottest 100 countdown, which was streaming live across the resort PA system (thanks Tracey for arranging it and Shinya Akio for agreeing, best mountain staff ever). The afternoon we returned to the lodge for drinks and a bbq, and found a few fun jibs which were built that afternoon out the front.

Since it hasn't snowed today me and Kyle rode the Hanazono park. The halfpipe also opened up recently, so it was cool to see some awesome riders tearing it up. There was also a rail jam in town tonight.
