RUSUTSU _ NYT SNOW 2013


MAIN / BLOGspace

NYT SNOW is a snow tour to Hokkaido, Japan during the beautiful winter season. NYT SNOW promotes a positive outlook of cultures through snow sports. There is beauty in exploring different regions with a group of likeminded riders. You can check out our previous unforgettable NYT SNOW adventures here.

The tour is a great opportunity for you to explore the unique and beautiful terrain and culture of Hokkaido, the northernmost island in Japan. The tour coincides during the President’s Day holiday weekend (Feb. 18-20). The 11 DAY TOUR is the almighty package which includes plenty of days in the mountains of Rusutsu and Niseko, the relaxing resort time, and Tokyo stop over weekend (or backcountry weekend). The 6 DAY TOUR is for those who aren’t able to take a long vacation.

There is nothing like riding the best feather weight champagne powder in the world of Hokkaido! What more can you ask for? Get your tickets now!
