Few things get you away from your daily grind. For pro skiers, the everyday is a vacation from the realities of the rest of the world. But the truth is that contests, filming and traveling can take their toll. To unplug from the normal routine, Drew Tabke, Ingrid Backstrom, Riley Leboe, Reine Barkered and Izzy Lynch head to the north island of Japan to reconnect with what inspires them in skiing, to explore new terrain and seek new culture. Join the crew as they venture off the grid, deep into the highest peaks of in Hokkaido to get bottomless turns in complete solitude.
