A Wacky Packed Ski Adventure in Japan

Go karting through downtown Tokyo, backcountry skiing in snorkel deep forests, a robot cabaret show, and then some more powder turns!

By: Marc Fryt + Save to a List

Trips do not always come together from beginning to end...but this one did. A month spent adventuring around Japan left us with some unbelievable skiing, wacky nights out, an absurd amount of laughing, and stunning experiences in the backcountry of Hokkaido. Rather than trying to explain it I'll let our film take it from here:

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on. Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations. Please explore responsibly!

Do you love the outdoors?

Yep, us too. That's why we send you the best local adventures, stories, and expert advice, right to your inbox.
