PlanetSKI and Cody LaPlante have something in common 😎

While we may not be as young as the talented young Cody who skis in an abandoned mining town below, we like to ski in abandoned areas too.

PlanetSKI took a trip to Fortress Mountain, the abandoned ski resort in Canada... it was eerie, wierd and slightly ghostly and was the setting for "Inception" starring Leonardo DiCaprio - Check out  Fortress Mountain Here.

In the video below Cody LaPlante travels 13 miles on a snowmobile into the old Californian Mining Town.

With the permission of the States Parks Team LaPlante and the crew build a dream ski-park within the eerie buildings.

Watch the 15 year old skier as he shreds the Bodie State Historic Park ghost town during a record-breaking snow season!

Nosawa is a small village, thought to be founded as far back as 724, with winding streets running with natural hot spring water, Noaswa is a Yuyama village or hot spring mountain town known to have one of the heaviest snowfalls in the Nagano region. 

And Nosawa didn’t disappoint.
Arriving to tales of the worst snowfall in 20 years, dry roads and a very brown landscape it appeared that the DIY team, Xavier De Le Rue and his wife Beanie, might not to be lucky. But it is amazing how one night can change everything.  

From arrival to departure over 3 metres of light, fluffy powder fell in Nosawa.


There are some great snowboarding shots in this short clip.

Wednesday 8th March

Now this has got to be the coolest way to check out the powder, anywhere!

Professional snowboarder, Austin Smith, lived in his fire truck at Mt Bachelor from New Year's Eve through to the start of February.

He said, "When I was fifteen I snowboarded here every day... I wanted to do that again this year," and that is exactly what he did.

January brought 2.74m of new snow followed up by 3.02m in February.

We're not sure he could have timed it any better because it has been an epic season to say the least!

This must be the best ski-in-ski-out scenario we've come across.

Possibly the coolest home .. in many senses of the wordPossibly the coolest home .. in many senses of the word!
