One of the Youtube channels that has caught our eye this season is MTN Swell バンライフ and their new series “Chasing the Frozen Wave“. The creation of photographer and videographer Ryan Butterfield, the series follows him and his crew as they drive their van across Japan via some of its best ski resorts – places like Nozawa Onsen, Geto Kogen, APPI Kogen and Hakkoda.

The team recently made its way north to Hokkaido (first stop: Snow Festival), and have given us a glimpse into van life on a -15°C day in winter. Hint: it looks pretty cold.

For anyone aspiring to take on a similar journey, it’s a must watch.
