    "many japanese believe the trees are sacred and so will only ski on marked trails...allowing us to enjoy fresh tracks for the rest of our trip!! god bless Americans...

    Recent pic of Miharashi - deep powder in open beech trees.
    It's been constant snowing - light & dry.
    It's time to checkout the cheap airfares.
