Crewed up with Ski Japan Adventure today for some split board and ski action. It was just starting to snow and the slope looked deceptively smooth, but the base was wind scoured and fairly firm. That is until we hit ‘Gully 4’. En route to the drop zone I had to offer my mountain donkey service carrying an extra pair of resort skis. So ‘Gully 4’ was untouched, on the lee aspect and 50cm deep. It was worth every bit of effort to get there and to get out. The pics today were of from a phone so pretty low res. I guess some memories are best kept in the mind. Great day with Alpine Backcountry Guides.
