Hot Tub Anyone?
One of the first places I want to visit is Niseko, Japan. I want to visit not just because it has some of the best powder skiing in the world, but I also want to see the Japanese Macaque, or snow monkey. The snow monkey has always been my favorite animal, and they only live in certain parts of Asia.
Since I will not have enough money to ski at all of the resorts, I will have to pack up my backcountry gear. I need to put my randonee bindings on my powder skis and I get some new skins. Also, I'm going to need to learn Japanese or find somebody to translate Japanese to English for me. One of the things I'm not looking forward to is eating weird food like fried moth larvae and gross stuff like that. At least I'll have Jacob with me to try it first.
