Hokkaido, Japan 2018

The Soul Play crew took to the northern island of Japan in February of 2018 for a 10-day trek in search of deep snow and good times. Bryon Friedman asked if I'd join his crew a week before the trip to document the action.

We flew in to Sapporo, rented a nine passenger 4WD van and roamed around Hokkaido, ski touring and hunting for deep snow amongst the famed birch forests. 

This is the action that ensued. Enjoy!
