The skiing in Japan has been getting a lot of hype in recent years. After spending two weeks sampling the resorts and backcountry of the Hakuba area I can say without reservation that the hype is justified. Many thanks to Morino Lodge for the hospitality, to Patagonia Ambassador and evo founder Bryce Phillips for killing it in front of the lens and organizing the trip, to Dubsatch collective skiers Sam Cohen and Zach Halverson for putting down some choice lines and deep turns for the camera, and to alt-J for the sweet background track. Here’s three and a half minutes of Hakuba at its finest. Enjoy!

As always, custom fine art prints of all of my work are available. And you can follow me online at: Facebook, Instagram, Google+, 500px and Twitter
