Default OvRride Japan Trip

Anyone taken any overseas trips using OvRride? I was just checking out their trip to Japan this upcoming February figuring it out if I can work it into my schedule early next year.

Just what my wallet didn't want to hear!

I already have a 1 to 2 week trip planned for Jackson Hole in early to mid March. Perhaps I can cut it short at 1 week and spend 6 days in Japan so my boss doesn't kill me.

It's 6 days of riding. 3 days at Rusutsu and 3 days at Niseko. They also have an option to take on some backcountry riding to make it 11 days of riding.

Are you saying 6 days of riding isn't enough due to the posisbility of not getting pow or because of the distance being traveled it would be best to stay longer?

Both but you will probably get pow in 6 days. Its just a lot of travel for 6 days and you will be heart broken to leave so soon.
What dates are you looking at?

Thank you for posting this. I now have a goal for the winter, 2015. Probably cost $4000 then, but this looks awesome!

I just looked at the package. Its all basic stuff you could easily book yourself. If it saves some money. 2 days in tokyo? Scratch that, spend those days on snow.
