Japan is famous for its legendary powder skiing. The polar jet stream descends off Siberia, soaks up moisture from the Sea of Japan, and unloads mass amounts of cold, low-density snow over the island of Hokkaido. Forests of twisted birch trees blanket a volcanic landscape formed by fire and shaped by water. Backcountry skiing and riding in Japan is as unique as Japanese culture.
