2018 BC VOYAGER – JAPAN POWDER TOUR
COURSE DATE: 06/01/18 – 16/01/18 PRICE: TBC GROUP SIZE: FULL
Japan’s, North Island, ‘Hokkaido’, has become World famous for its abundance of deep, cold, feather light powder snow. Every winter, stories and images of endless cold face shots, deep white room turns and amazing bottomless tree line descents reach far and wide around the globe as never ending Siberian storms flow out over the ‘sea of Japan’ gaining moisture before hitting the mountains of Hokkaido and depositing their wares.
For those addicted to the #ilovesurfingmountains mentality, Hokkaido is an eternal sonar blip echoing on our constantly turning ‘powder radar screen’ and this trip is designed to satisfy that craving and then some!
Join me for an incredible 10 day Japow’der riding ‘Voyage’ of discovery around Hokkaido, Japan. We will spend 5 days exploring the mountains around Niseko, Rusutsu and Kiroro before heading East to the powder Capitals of Furano, Kumui and Asahidake.
We will be immersed in Japanese culture, cuisine and of course ‘Powder’ armed with pow boards and Splits…
For those that love to ‘Surf mountains’ there can be no finer trip.
