TMG TOUR 1: Myoko Kogen

Posted

Not going to Japan this year? Neither were we...

Myoko Kogen is fast becoming one of Japan's premier powder destinations. With an average annual snowfall of 15m, and multiple 20m+ winters in the last few years, it's not hard to see why. Widely tipped to become the "New Hakuba", now is the time to explore this special area before things blow out.


March is a great time to head to Japan, and this is when we've chosen to run the tour. While pow is not 100% guaranteed in-bounds, lift lines are virtually non-existent, prices are much cheaper, and those who have been before will tell you it's quite possible to luck out and score a full week of mid-winter style powder, all with nobody else around...

We've partnered with MOSS Snowstick & Myoko Vista to bring you the tour for those who "weren't going to go" this year.

The TMG Tour runs 7/10 days from Mar 11th 2019. We'll be based in Myoko Kogen (Nagano, Japan) and explore terrain in local & nearby resorts, with "Wombat" from Myoko Vista / MOSS guiding us to his secret spots in each resort. For the adventurous, we'll be offering optional Backcountry & Cat Boarding days. This is a no-stress, all-inclusive tour. Save your brain power for editing your GoPro clips on the plane home to Sydney :).

Partnering with MOSS has allowed us to set this trip apart from the rest, with riders having unlimited use of the entire MOSS Snowstick range for the duration of the trip! See (Drool over) the range below...

This trip will be EXCLUSIVELY offered to customers, friends & family of TMG. We have a maximum of 9 seats available (+ me = 10) so lock this one in quick smart and come ride with us in Japan!
