Japan Excursion Description:

Turns out… JAPAN HAS THE BEST SNOW IN THE WORLD!!! No joke… we challenge anyone to prove otherwise! Three consecutive years in Hokkaido, it never stopped snowing and the powder piled up by the foot all day, and all night!!!

You asked for it… so you got it… We’re heading back to Japan to take in the rich local culture, the elegant unique vistas, and featherlight wordclass champagne powder. To ensure the most authentic and comprehensive experience, we’ve again teamed up with NYT Snow – The Best Reps in the New York – Japan connection.

If you’re looking for the best snow in the world, you WILL find it in Japan. It’s time to take East Coast to the FAR East Coast!!!

When OvRride does Japan, you can be sure we do it right. We’re putting together several options to see as much as we can and hit the best resorts in the region. The majority of our stay will be in Hokkaido, the most northern Japanese Island, which receives some of the world’s heaviest snowfall. Assuring the right trip for everyone, we’ve got several options including Hokkaido, Tokyo and optional Backcountry tours.

Don’t Miss this Epic Excursion! If you can’t go to Japan every year… do it this year, OvR & NYT Snow 2017!
