J Pow!..Aomori Springs turns it on..


The fat cats tour is over, but not before leaving its mark on Aomori resort on Mt Iwaki, Japan. Powder plunder and buffet excess went hand in hand over a 9 day period that would have broken records on food consumption and pow turns carved. Whether Rob Mitchell, Jack Spence and Will Jackways get invited back is a question best left unanswered at this stage. Like unpaid room tabs and karma, things have a habit of catching up in the end. But for now, the boy’s sleep contented, with their extra couple of kilos, and numerous white room memories. Full story in issue #63…out May 4th!
