This December & January, Japan’s isle of Honshu received more snow than it has in the past 10 years. The snowpack in the valleys is deeper than it has been in the past 10 years. Needless to say, it’s been a great January in Japan.
As of today, records are indicating that 354″ of snowfall has fallen so far this winter in Northern Honshu. 354″ of snowfall and it’s only January… Up in the mountains, a heck of a lot more has fallen. Many ski resorts in the area are reporting around 124″ snow depths and deeper at the their bases.
If you haven’t been to Japan yet – if you haven’t seen it snow in Japan yet – it’s time to go. evo is taking skiers and riders to Japan this winter. Evo’s got all the details worked out for you so all you have to do is show up, ski deep pow, eat great food, and get blown away by amazing culture.
January is the month of non-stop snowstorms. The beginning of January was certainly non-stop before things slowed down a bit and we got some sun and great high pressure days to roam higher up in the mountains.
In the end of January, we got a bit of a warm up, but nothing dramatic. Right now, conditions are OK up high and we’re waiting for a large 3 day storm set to arrive on Friday. Let it snow.
February is the month of big snow and substantially more sunshine. February is our favorite month as it’s the month of getting into the wild technical alpine zones here.
There’s not much to think about on this one. If you wanna ski pow, it’s time to drop in. evo’s got you covered with 4 epic trips lined up for this winter in Japan:
