There’s something to be said about chasing snow, and this season I think we can all agree that the chase is on. With lower than normal amounts of the fluffy white stuff on the west coast of Canada and the USA, there seems to be no shortage on the east coast, or Europe, or Japan! So what are we left to do? Chase it of course, all the way to Japan! Our Canadian babe friend Ashley who now resides in the wonderful land down under, took a trip to Japan and found endless amounts of snow in trees, on trees, and around trees. With an average of 30-50 cm’s most days, her and the crew road tripped from resort to resort starting in Hakuba Cortina and Nozawa for a lil backcountry, and through Rusutsu and Kiroro in Hokkaido for its incredible tree runs. From resort life to city life, they experienced all Japan has to offer while also taking in all the culture from the downtown nightlife of Tokyo and rural areas of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku. Wild monkeys, Japanese onsen, beer vending machines, all you can drink karaoke, and 30+ cm’s of snow, the memories are endless, and priceless.
