    Asia has never really been top of mind when it comes to Snow sports and the picturesque winter wonderlands we are used to seeing in Europe or North America.

    Then again countries where English isn’t widely spoken are slightly more difficult to find information on.

    Japan is one of those countries.



    If you’ve seen my Japan travel videos;

    you know that I am completely in love with this country and for good reason.

    So naturally, 5 years ago when is started hearing about the fluffiest perfect powder conditions in Japan, my interest was piqued.



    In 2014, we finally decided to take a winter trip with the family to Niseko and since then, I want to go back for every season.


    If you’ve been skiing in Europe and North America, you know how inconsistent the snow can be during certain seasons, the prices can be quite high and people seem to be quite aggressive on the mountain.

    Now imagine Japan.

    People have an innate respect for each other, the snow is pretty consistent every season (even on a bad one) and who doesn’t want fresh sashimi and sake pares ski?

    Here is a video I made from our recent trip there in February 2017.
