Snowboarding in PowPow

Dear Readers,

Thank you for your patience. While I have been busying myself with food tastings, feet upon feet of powder snow, I have found a new love: snowboarding. I am a full convert. Will never ever go back to ski. Boarding in powder is one of my favorite things to do in the world. Its absolutely amazing. Niseko is great but its exactly how it feels like to live in a ski village.

Small, laid back and loads of fun. I would like to think of it as a detox trip, a move away from the hectic life I used to live. Its been good staying away from the computer and taking a step back from the hassles of technology.

I love riding in powder. Niseko has the best powder. Going up after work.

Love, Val
