There are no ski areas on the peaks above the historic village of Shirakawa-go, but it’s surrounded by great skiing—as long as you’re willing to hike for it. Join Carston Oliver, Eliel Hindert, Pep Fujas and Makoto Takeishi as they take to the hills to discover the meaning of “Deep” in the Shirakawa backcountry.

Paradise Waits (Tour Edit)

How do you celebrate winter when the snow finally falls? Freeskier Tim Durtschi takes tram laps at Jackson Hole and big mountain skier Angel Collinson rips up some Alaskan lines.

The Burn

Fire frees new lines for skiers, who revel in the newly-charred forest.

55 Hours in Mexico

Fly to Veracruz on a Friday, rent a car, climb the third-highest peak in North America, ski down and return to your desk Monday. How hard could it be?

One more reason not to miss it: 50% off subscriptions to the Canadian Rockies Annual will be up for grabs!
