I had my first taste of x-country skiing with Andre in Furano; downhill skiing in Kamui with Felix, snow -shoeing up Asahidake with Felix and then another x- country session at Asahidake. Love all our time with team Ninja Powder. Thanks for a great experience!

I had, by far, the most amazing back country trip of my life. With local knowledge of all the sweet spots, hot springs, and food, Pat is the most professional bad-ass out there. From pickup to drop off, it was a first class experience.
