Hakuba 25th January, 2010

Happo BC

Jens gave me a lot of backcountry advice. With slides like these the Hakuba backcountry can be deadly.

We have had a lot of media people staying with us over the years and this week we have had the famous Norwegian photographer Jens-Morten Øvervoll. He is shooting for a story to be published in the biggest scandinavian outdoors adventure magazine. Jens has also been involved in the Norway Avalanche Rescue Team for over 20 years and his backcountry experience is astounding. I had the pleasure to spend some time on the mountain with him and his crew Torkel Karoliussen, writer and pro skier and Håvard Ånesen  who is a pro snowboarder. Today Jens told me that he did not want to do the story as they didn’t want anybody to find out about Hakuba. Their lines down the south face of Happo were the talk of the town. Another satisfied customer. Thanks for coming guys. We will see you again, i’m sure.
