Our good old pal Thomo has spent the last 10 season working at Rhythm in Hakuba. He knows whats up on a pow day...
"Loose lips sink ships. I can show you but I can’t tell you haha! Spoilt for choice in Hakuba and with 50 cents of fresh all resorts will be on. Hakuba 47 for the trees... make sure you get your bib. Happo One is the steepest. Iwatake is smaller, but a heap of fun and can be less crowded. I think everyone knows Cortina trees are a great time...." - Thomo, Rhythm Hakuba
Heading to Niseko and want to know the best spot to soak the bones after a big day on the Shred? Or where to get the best Ramen in town? Well, we've got the hot tips from TWO of the best heads in Niseko.
"The Grand Hotel in Moiwa is great as it is mixed so the whole team can onsen together. Women - don’t panic you have the choice to wear a covering. Guys - you will need to rely on the natural water level" - Ellie, Niseko Photography
"Best Ramen is down in Kutchan- Daishin. Spicy miso for the win or Sweet Corn Butter. Up in Hirafu Moon Bar Ramen – Double dog dare you to try their Devil Ramen haha!" - Joel Graham, Ski Japan
We've got the goods from two gurus in the know when it comes to Myoko...
"A visit to Myoko is not complete without a few sneaky bevvie’s at Myoko Skate Bar, one of the OG bars in town, complete with mini ramp.. The stories I could tell from this place..." - Bart, MountainWatch Travel
"Best Ramen in town, there is definitely three good ones. I actually have some advice when looking for the best Ramen shop, when the outside is looking not so you, the Ramen on the inside is usually very good! Anyway, I would have to say Running Baby or Vendo Ramen is definitely my favourite." -Joey, Joeys Myoko
