The Chugach, AK, Alaska. What pipeline in Hawaii is to surfing, this is to snowboarding. When the weather and avalanche conditions stabilise at the beginning of spring, it's heaven on earth. #snowboard #splitboard #ski
Shiribetsudake (Mt Shiribetsu or 尻別岳) is my go-to backcountry peak in the Niseko area. It's an all weather destination as it's pretty much all below the treeline, which makes it a great option on those d-e-e-p, stormy days. The approach is pretty short from the road and whilst the runs are short, most of them are quite steep. There's the odd opportunity to get airborne and there's quite a few different faces for variety. #snowboard #ski #splitboard #backcountry #hokkaido #japow #japanuary.
