I've now been in Japan for one month. It's been a fantastic mix of high-pressure skiing and deep powder. Already, so many days will stand out in my mind for a long time down the road. Skiing new zones, trying new angles, and getting creative. It's all been a blast.
Today was a great way to mark the first 30 days of my second winter here. We got high pressure with light winds until late in the day. Combine that with sluffy snow that skied fast, it was a great day to ski some fun lines and get some good photos. I'll continue to update things from mid January, but when the skiing is this good, it's difficult to get much else done.

|The Alaskan working the comfort zone: no trees and really steep|
|My favorite from the day: Yari in the background, Matthias in the foreground|
