Thats a lot of snow !!!!
I want to go!
must go now
It shits snow in Japan. Go there
is that one with the bus a record snow year or something or is that a normal amount? that’s ridiculous!
I would say record now year. Hirafu/Niseko will get on average 12ish meters(~472in) total snowfall every year. Last season(11/12) they got 15.3 meter(602in), this season is even better.
Right now at Hirafu Grand the have a snow base of 4.9 meters(192in) at the top.
Mate, that picture is taked in Tokyo on a very high snow year. That bus is public transpo to Niseko… was there that year. Spewin!
Picture of the bus is actually from the High Alpine Route in Nagano, near Hakuba.
I always get confused – doesn’t it snow around 600″ at the higher snowfall resorts in Japan?
Mt Baker usually gets more than that, Alta/Snowbird/Brighton get 50-100″ less than that but you don’t see this kind of snow anywhere else in the world. Nothing even compares.
Every time I look at a few Japanese ski resort weather reports, they are getting pounded with feet and feet of snow – what is the deal? Do they report less than they receive?
Where in Japan does the most snow fall annually?
I read somewhere that the snowiest parts of the japanese Alps receive on AVERAGE 1200-1500″ each year.
I mean shit, Aomori City, which is at sea level averages 304″ in a very dense city of 300,000 people. Thats an absurd amount of snow for a CITY.
I guess that’s what happens when you’re on an island with cold air pouring in from siberia
Lookz like Tahoe back in 80′s
yeh without the dodgy mullet hairdo’s?
