Take advantage of a truly unique opportunity: spend one or several days skiing or riding in the best resorts in Japan in the company of a FWT or FWQ athlete. Follow them to their favorite spots and get some tips from real pros.


Let a Freeride World Tour (FWT) or Freeride World Qualifier (FWQ) rider lead you to the best spots in Hokkaido, Nagano or Niigata and enjoy one or several days of pure fun as you follow their lines in some of Japan's most famous resorts. Get some pro tips from one of the riders in this insane lineup!

In the Freeride World Tour, skiers and riders compete both for individual wins and for the World Championship. While finals take place in Verbier (Switzerland), qualifiers take place all around the world, including some of the top resorts in Japan.



Check out the different trip options below and spend a memorable day skiing or riding with a pro. The activity will take place within resort boundaries but you'll get to ride secret areas of powder snow, ski moguls, pick a fun line through the trees, go for a steep run or even hit the terrain park if you're up for it.

Dare push the boundaries of your comfort zone and join one of the pros in this incredible pool of athletes!
