I have been trying to come check out Hakuba for many years and finally did it today. I am here to take the CASI snowboard instructor training course starting Wednesday but came a day early to get some riding in before that. Today I had a chance to see around town, have an Onsen and then a nice burger. Tonight I am staying at the Hakuba Powder Lodge and tomorrow I will go ride at Hakuba Cortina Ski resort. I will give you an update at the end of the week about the training course.
