Niseko Trip Update: Sushi, Skiing, and a lot more Snow

We’re more than halfway through our trip, and as the title suggests, there have been a few consistent themes.

Here are twelve of Ryan Heffernan‘s photographs that help tell the story.

(As always, click on images to enlarge.)

'Soy Roll, Anyone?' Our friend Tom met up with us in Niseko. This is Tom realizing that he had mistakenly ordered 64 soy rolls—for himself. (Bonus material: the poster in the background.)

It’s been an incredible trip so far, and we are far from done. More skiing, more reviews, more photos, and a promise to show you the most mind-blowing chocolate and ice cream sandwich invention we’ve ever seen. Stay tuned.

  1. The amount of snow in these photos is amazing. Love the photos and the story behind them. Looks like it can’t get much better than Niseko as far as skiing goes – now I want to go too! Enjoy yourselves
