While filming for TGR’s 2010/2011 ski and snowboard film entitled “One for the Road”, TGR traveled to the north island of Japan. Accompanied by world-class skiers Daron Rahlves, Chris Benchetler, and Dana Flahr, the TGR team spent two weeks following the snow and riding the backcountry.
Basing out of the Black Diamond Lodge in the Niseko Valley, the TGR crew explored Japan’s landscape finding pristine powder, amazing pillow lines, and breathtaking views of untouched terrain.
