Deep powder skiing in Japan

Snoworks Ski Japan Adventure

How’s it going mate? Yep you’ve guessed it, I’m an Aussie and what we Aussies like to do is travel.

I’ve travelled so much that eventually my passion has also became my work (if you can call it work). Skiing was the catalyst that took me to the French Alps for the first time when I was 19. Having been born and bred in Australia I arrived at the mecca of French skiing, the Tarantaise Valley, home to the iconic resorts of Val d’Isere, Les Arcs and Courchevel. The impact was immediate and has lasted a lifetime.

My travels around the globe happened to coincide with the Snoworks Japan Ski Adventure and I was showing Phil and his guests around Niseko and introducing them to the amazing Japanese powder. Ever since then I have skied with Snoworks guests on every one of the Japan Ski Adventures.

If you’re heading to Japan then I’ll meet you.
