Layover at Home

Traveling to Japan to ski powder with my Dad was all-time. I still can't believe how good it really was. The travel slog back home to the U.S. was legit, and I was worn out for a while. However, there was little time to rest as I only had a week or so to get back to work in the Wasatch before I had to board another airplane for another trip soon after. Honestly, it felt more like a layover at home then it did actually being home. The time flew by. Before I knew it I was packing again even though it felt like I had just unpacked from Japan.


#Japanuary has become a popular hashtag with skiers traveling to Japan in January on the social media sites of the internet. Droves of skiers are now beginning to flock to the powder paradise of northern Japan and its north island of Hokkaido. I fell in love with the place nearly a decade ago when I went to Niseko, Japan to film for a ski movie by Sweetgrass Productions called, Signatures. When I returned home from that trip I immediately called my Dad and raved about the place. I told him that one day he would have to come with me. A couple weeks ago… he did, and we were calling it; #Dadpanuary!
