Worried about not getting your fair shake of powder days this season? If so, go ahead and book a trip to the place where it snows the most in the entire world– southern Hokkaido.

This year is partnering with Unofficial Networks to host  the trip of a lifetime to the mecca of all things powder snow– Niseko, Japan. And while you’ll be based out of the same ski area that served as the pillow playground for the likes of JP Auclair and Chris Benchetler, we’ll also be traveling in search of the deepest snow around. Whether that’s Rusutsu, Kiroro, or a ski tour up Mt Yotei– we’ll be there.

When the sun goes down, bathe in one of the hundred onsen’s that encompasses the region (*on-site onsen at the Green Leaf Inn) before putting it all back on and heading out for a night ski. The night skiing is all time at Grand Hirafu and you have to see it to believe it (*teaser below).

“’s guided trip was the ultimate way for me to check Japan off my bucket list. The trip was perfectly organized and the skiing, food and cultural experiences were incredible. Hands down the best ski trip of my life.” – Spencer Long, Jackson, Wyoming

And it’s not just the night skiing. Japan as a whole needs to be met up close and personal. The snow, the culture, the food, offers the entire picture.
