In early March the Northwave/Drake crew made its way east to the land of the rising sun for a 6-day team trip with David Djite, Antti Autti and Kohei Kudo.

The first three days were spent in Asahidake to let loose in waist-deep pow, that we would sell our first-borns for right now (maybe not, but you get where we're coming from).

After that they headed to Gala for the famous Air Mix contest to do some more shredding and a also bit of sending it at the bar. Really, what more could you want from a trip?! Hey guys, take us too next time!

Riders: Antti Autti (FIN), Kohei Kudo (JPN) and Dvid Djite (SUI)

Locations: Asahidake (Hokkaido), Gala (Niigata)
