Every year I make the winter migration back north for a period of time, for some guiding in Japan. Unlike most winter migrations this one follows the snow.

Based in Niseko for a few months of guiding and coaching, my short powder-filled winter here is a hard thing not to do. Writing and web work during this time often takes a bit of a back seat, with one’s own personal blog being the first to suffer. So here’s a quick image-focused post to keep things ticking along.

The following photos were all taken on location, by my own fair hand while guiding for Powder Detours in Hokkaido, Japan.
