Throughout the #Hakuba region, the valleys of the backcountry are punctuated with interesting dams of various shapes and sizes. The ones exiting the #Happo North Face are particularly impressive. (at 白馬八方尾根スキー場 (Happo-one ski resort))
Found a rad pleather vest at a thrift store in Tokyo and I had to snap a selfie. Not pictured: zip-on hood with fake fur.
Drove up early to @Stevenspass this morning to photograph some heli-assisted avalanche control work for a long term project I’ve got going. Had to stop on the way up to admire this brilliant sunrise. (at City of Sultan)
I’m pretty sure I need to return to Japan in the spring to do some ski-mountaineering. Who’s in?

Excited to spend a day wandering around Tokyo without a care or a clue. #evotrip #japan (at 新宿ワシントンホテル (Shinjuku Washington Hotel))
Our last day of skiing in Japan was just about as good as it gets. I hate to leave this wonderful, snowy place! (at 赤倉温泉 Akakura Onsen)
Conditions were quite hospitable today in the high alpine above #Hakuba. Opportunities abound! (at 白馬八方尾根スキー場 (Happo-one ski resort))
Since iPhones are better at shooting still life photos of trees than shooting deep powder skiing action, you’ll have to take my word about the powder and enjoy this amazingly ornate tree. PS, lots of pow action shots in the big camera to be edited and shared soon! (at 白馬八方尾根スキー場 (Happo-one ski resort))
Japanese pillow party! @brycephillips #iphoneonly #evotrip (at 栂池高原スキー場 (Tsugaike Kogen))
Approaching ‘Dude, where’s my car?’ snow depths here in #Hakuba with @brycephillips and #evotrip. (at Morino Lodge)
My new @k2_skis Powabungas were the magic sauce today in two feet of very thick pow in #Hakuba with @brycephillips. @evo #evotrip #japow (at 白馬八方尾根スキー場 (Happo-one ski resort))
