The team had a bit of a break during the southern winter, but were back in semi-serious training by September.  They had their first major international training camp earlier this month in Finland, as the 2015/2016 Nordic ski season began to get fully underway. Skiers with the team this season include Nitta Yoshihir, Keiichi Sato,  Yurika Abe and Kazuto Takamura.

Asahikawa is a world class Nordic ski area, and in the past has held IPC Nordic World Cup events, including an event earlier this year.
