Japan is opening up again to travel now!  We are looking at the option of visiting Niseko this year on the North Island – a spot with even more snowfall than Hakuba ! Waiting to confirm details including dates and prices. The proposed dates are Feb 4 – 12, 2023. Please email us if you are interested so we can keep you updated.

Hakuba, Japan – Wikipedia:  Hakuba receives approximately 11 meters of snowfall annually, with most snowfall occurring in the months of January and February.

Our Mission: Serious POW Skiing when it dumps and serious MOGUL skiing if it doesn’t.  No matter what the snow does we have you covered.

Join us this February for a trip of a lifetime with veteran coaches: 2 x Olympian John Smart, top CSIA/Freestye Canada coach Ken Rhodes and Big Mountain Pro Austin Ross.   The fun factor and mileage will be high on this trip!
