“Snowboarded all day, drank sake all night, karaoke in the evenings.” That’s the trip write-up from YES. Snowboards rider Tom Pelley, who has been featured in episode two of Tasman Team, a series produced by Phootstep Films.

The series follows YES. Snowboards’ team of Australia and Kiwi riders on their recent Japan trip, with most of the footage shot out of Lotte Arai resort in the country’s Myoko region.

Pelley and the crew show us plenty of the deep powder that Lotte Arai has made a name for, and Pelley even treats the riders to some urban riding – that’s if you can allow us to refer to Lotte Arai’s multi million dollar hotel development as “urban”.

If this edit hits the spot, be sure to also check out episode one, featuring Aussie rider Briony May Johnson.
