Episode 2 of Patagonia’s “Find Away“ series follows the #JapanByVan adventure of dedicated skiers Carston Oliver, Eliel Hindert, Pep Fujas and local guide Makoto Takeishi through the secluded Japanese village of Shirakawa-go. Miles from the nearest ski resort, the historic village features unique thatched-roofed style houses built centuries ago, and is surrounded by huge peaks offering great skiing, if you’re willing to hike for it.
Deep pillow powder and 2-3000 foot spines make this area dream worthy. Check out the footage from what Oliver, Hindert, and Fujas deemed as “the deepest day they’ve experienced in Japan.”
Filmed by Nick Waggoner & Mike Brown / Music “Your Wish” by Talisco.
