The snow in Japan does crazy things and I am always amazed by how much snow can hang off something without ever falling. This was on the way to Mt Yotei at 4am trying to catch the sunrise for the last day of the #proam @nisekoshootout photo comp. Photo:@toshi_pander @yamaplus @ridesnowboardsjapan

Never have I ever skied into a volcano. Mount Yōtei was a wild and unique experience, totally worth the 6000+ vertical we had to skin/hike. We were very fortunate to be able to have a clear day and tackle this beast.

One of the more notable moments (of many) on this Japan trip was getting to summit the iconic dormant volcano Mt Yotei, which commands the view from all around the Niseko area. This time of year it is usually buried under storm clouds, but on our last possible weather window @southworth_wells_hamilton and I woke up at the michi-no-eki (car camping lot) to still blue skies to the horizon. It took us five hours to slog up the 5,500 vertical feet to the summit with brutal winds hammering us the final thousand feet, but breaking through the cloud layer and standing above it all (solo with our Japanese friend we traded lead on the ascent with) was a surreal and unforgettable experience. The turns in this video will not blow your mind. But it was simply a privilege to lay down a few lefts and rights on a pristine pitch of such an incredible mountain. Will forever be grateful for the opportunity! (Also I need a voice coach to get rid of my breath-holding-noide I do every toeside turn 🤷🏻‍♂️) #cardanchi #vanlife #japanbyvan #yotei #hokkaido

Day5: theres been this giant volcano thats been bothering me the whole time we've been skiing in Niseko. So prominent the mt.yotei, we could see this beast in any resorts. Most of the time its under the clouds but we were lucky enough to catch a bluebird day with very little wind. We were looking for guide service but costing over 600 dollars, we just said fuck it and got our snowshoes and went for it. The wind was fucking BRUTAL at the treeless section but once we got to the top, I could not believe the size of that giant crater. Then, we clicked in and skied down a couloir. The snow was honestly icy and shitty, but the mere scale of that days adventure made everything so memorable and heart-beating. Backcountry skiing is an amazing thing. 후카이도의 후지산이라 불리는 요테이 화산이 있다. 니세코 어디에서도 보이는 이산에 꼭한번은 올라가보고 싶었다. 그래서 에밋과 등산장비를 빌려 날이 풀리자마자 스키를 매고 올라갔다. 원래 날씨가 더럽기로 유명한 산인데 날이 좋음에도 불구하고 올라가니까 바람이 장난이 아니였다 ㅋㅋ 굴러 떨어지는줄 ㄷㄷ 7시간에 걸쳐 올라가니 위에 엄청난 분화구가.... 다른 행성에 온 기분이었다! 정상에서 스키를 타고 내려가는것도 짜릿했다. 리조트가 아닌 자연 산에서는 눈사태를 엄청 조심해야되기때문에 조금씩조금씩 내려갔다. 아침8시에 시작해서 내려오니 어느덧 해가 뉘엿뉘엿 지고 있었다. 엄청난 하루였고 무사히 돌아와서 감사했다. 가슴뛰는 모험이었다. #japow #yotei #backcountry

Got up high on Mount Yotei today. Sun has been pounding it for a few days by now so the skiing was not as stellar as the views, introspection, and nostalgia were. The “dream mountain” is a special place for me. Now more then ever. You see, I had an “all time” kind of day up there a few years back by now with four really good friends and a few brand new Japanese ones on a bluebird powder day the last day of one of the best ski project trips I have ever had. This summer we tragically lost one of those four good friends, and today I went back and spread some of his ashes onto the wind on this special mountain. It was a moment I was not sure I was ready for, but it was something I knew I had to do. That particular day years ago the four of us joked that perhaps we had died in an avalanche the day before and we were all in heaven together on the “dream mountain”, but today my buddy Ben is, and I was back there on that same ridge, on that same mountain, on another blue sky day looking at the same sky line. It was all there like a flood of memories. It was all as fresh as yesterday. I took a quiet moment. I thought about him, and how much I miss him. I thought about that day. I wondered if he could see me. If he knew were I was. I put his ashes up on the wind, and when the passing cloud crystals soon after began to sprinkle in the sunshine on the wind I knew he was. I believed he saw me, I believed it was his sign, that just maybe a bit of heaven is a mountain in Japan, or at least as close to it as I can get for now, and as close as I can get to him for now. I still have more of his ashes to put on more of our favorite peaks, and I believe I will feel him again there too. Just like I do when I see his kids, or hear his wife laugh, or ski with his Dad and his brothers, or give his Mom a hug. I miss him every day. I think about him all the time. I am not sure snowy peaks will ever quite be the same again, but I might just love them even more because I believe that is one more place I feel him, one more place I see him, one more little taste of heaven on earth. | #life #love #mountain #peak #heaven #earth #yotei
