Overall I think that this trip was excellent. Our guides Dawn and Juni were professional and did their best to satisfy everyone in terms of skiing/boarding, eating, travel, onsens etc. There was lots of snow and we managed to get great turns in every day. The group was good and everyone enjoyed each other.

Some comments for improvement: the terrain provided different skiing conditions for boarders vs. skiiers - e.g. boarders took longer to do the long traverses and this frustrated the fast skiers. However there were too few boarders to divide the group in half. Perhaps the fact that everyone needs to expect to ski together, should be more explicit. I know that some of the skiers complained and this made me feel badly throughout the trip (I was one of the 2 boarders). Although I am a strong snowboarder, maybe my ability was not as strong as the others. About 1/2 the group was truly expert and I would say I am advanced. I felt like it was a bit ambitious for me on about 1/2 of the days.

I also think it is a lot to ask the guides to do all that driving in addition to putting in long days of skiing. Some days we would come way after dark and all of us, guides included, were exhausted. This is potentially dangerous - I know that the guides were too tired to be driving.
