I want to…Shred as much powder as possible which usually means riding lifts, but if there isn’t great snow in the resort I’m willing to walk! This will be a touring focused trip where we will mainly use touring gear to gain elevation. This tour is for someone that wants to summit the famous peaks in Central Hokkaido. Longer days means more shredding to be done! Experience the authentic side of Japan and ride exclusive backcountry
