If you're going to go to Hokkaido, or any other powdery locale, these are the tools you need this season.
Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan, is a powder skier's fantasy. It's time to wake up and make it your reality.
The backcountry terrain near Rusutsu is especially inviting when a helicopter is involved.
With an amusement park, tiny gondolas, and incredibly deep snow, Rusutsu Resort is unlike any ski area in the world.
Hokkaido's largest city offers endless Japanese culture and experiences.
Just off Hokkaido's beaten path lies a totally unique ski area.
Believe the hype: Sapporo's Snow Festival is an experience unto itself.
