Japan

Skiing in Japan is pretty much like skiing in the clouds… at least that is what we were told the first time we visited the islands. Looking back at it now, we could not have described it any better ourselves.

Imagine floating through completely bottomless powder day after day and night after night. Yes, night skiing is a big thing in Japan. Not only does Japan serve up industrial quantities of powder but also incredible food and a rich cultural and culinary experience... So sit back in an onsen (natural hot spring) after a day neck-deep in Japanese powder and ponder whether it's going to be sushi, nabe (Japanese hot-pot) or okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake) for dinner.

Top Tip: Bring a snorkel!
