    Curious what venue they will use at Kicking Horse. Hope they have a good snow year and not super sketchy snowpack. Also the footage I saw from Hakuba last year was not great, maybe it was a bad weather venue choice.

    That was a backup venue due to avi risk i think i remember seeing. And also a FWQ so less waiting period maybe? Hopefully they get good conditions.

    I don't think they have decided yet but Ozone's been tossed around, but suspect avy conditions would need to work out perfectly. The run the Wrangle 4* off T1 so could always use that.

    Not sure why I missed this thread until now... as I watch Thing #2 gearing up to leave on Wednesday. He's going to Hakuba a few days early to get some Japow in. No insight on venues yet.

    Thanks for all the props. I know he appreciates it.

    I'll be waiving at y'all from the finish corral!

    So stoked for this kid. He's a beast.

    Word around Happo Village is that it might well go off tomorrow (Tuesday in JP, Monday where you are). Day before yesterday the conditions on the comp face were so bad - absolute boilerplate wind buff, slide for life no fall kinda stuff - FWT had the first ever on-venue inspections for the athletes. Snowed yesterday, more in the forecast over this week.
