Is it Japan? Is it Korea?
In the middle of the sea stretching between Japan and South Korea, there lies a little island named Ulleung-Do. Very few people have ever heard of this destination from the get go, even fewer think of skiing it. The native population of Ulleung-Do has only four local skiers. Carston Oliver and Eliel Hindert were lucky enough to get an invitation to ski this unknown mecca- despite the inconvenience of getting there, it would be rude to refuse such an offer.
Check out the bottomless powder between 1:29 and 1:48 in this volcanic, powder paradise.
Based on purely on the location of Ulleung-Do, it gets hammered with the snow that Japan’s mountains are known for collecting; however, here the storms are much more raw in power. They are known for receiving 1-2 meters of snow within a 24 hour period during an average storm cycle. The island is known for collecting over 50 feet of snow during a standard year. It is a volcanic island that is a four hour boat ride over turbid seas, yet it provides a powder paradise for the few who are brave and willing enough to go anywhere for snow.
