Sisterhood of Pow

By February 5, 2019Articles, Travel

Japan is a dream ski destination not just for amateurs and enthusiasts, but for world-renowned professional skiers too. During the 2017/18 season, we were approached by a team of professional female skiers and snowboarders to support their upcoming ski video which was to promote women’s freeriding. We were more than happy to support the team, and they came over to stay with us in Japan.

The team consisted of pro skier Maude Raymond, X Games gold medallist and Olympian Elena Hight, and well-known freeriders Taylor Godber and Caley Vanular.

During their trip, the team stayed in some of the best Niseko accommodation in town in order to rest well, and have enough room for camera equipment. One of these was famous ski in / ski out apartments of Alpen Ridge, and the other was the centrally located Hirafu 188. Local magazine also interviewed the team – check out their article here.

The team has now released their video, and it’s nothing short of amazing. Watch the full clip below.

If this inspired you to come ski in Japan, we’d love to hear from you. Reach out and talk to our team and get started on your very own Japan ski holiday. Contact us here.
