Every year a new group of young workers come to do a season in Hakuba and every year I worry about one of them not going home alive. The side country, slack country and back country are amazing here and something to be enjoyed. The problem is that there are dangers lurking everyday in the form of avalanches. I always give our staff a stern warning at their induction but this year we have decided to take it a bit further and run an Avi Awareness Night at the White Horse. We will have the Fall Line avalanche education video along with some crew here to talk about the Hakuba mountains and what to expect with the snow pack and conditions. Please come and join us. Everyone is welcome.
When – 16th December
Where – White Horse Hotel in Echoland
Time – 5 pm
Cost – 500 yen includes a free drink
