On January 23rd I headed to Japan to guide a couple trips for Whitecap Alpine. And boy, what a start it was! As in true fine form, Japan delivered with it's legendary blower pow and pummelled us with 2m of snow over 6 days. The taps eventually turned off but the sun decided to make an appearance and cold temps persisted. I guided a wonderful group of doctors from the Okanagan during the last week and now waiting for the next group to arrive. More snow on the way for a good reset!
