In 2011 we've visited Japan for the first time and fall in love in nature and snowy mountains of Hokkaido. It looks very similar to our homeland Kamchatka, though not so wild, with easy access to lots of interesting powder spots and mineral hot springs. And since then we were visiting this amazing place almost each winter, enjoying great skiing and boarding, fantastic food and interesting culture of Japan.

Our moto - best possible skiing here and now, so we are not stuck to ski lifts and combine mechanized skiing with skitouring. With a four-wheel drive minivan and skitouring equipment we are not limited within the boundaries of ski resort and can choose the best powder spots.

But off course, the trip would not be so amazing without other aspects of Japanese life. The greatest apres-ski pleasure is relaxing thermal springs – onsens. You can even ski down to some of them, and feel the sensation of contrast from cold powder to the hot thermal water. Another sensation is Japanese food. Fresh seafood, traditional dishes of Hokkaido, famous Ramen noodles and other gastronomic discoveries. And don’t forget about sake and local beer!
Not only skiing and apres-ski are interesting in Japan, but also its unique ancient culture, which is worth seeing at least once.

Welcome to the country of rising sun and deepest powder on the planet!
