The second Japanese stop in the Freeride World Qualifer series.

The Freeride World Qualifier series heads to Lotte Arai Resort, a ski resort in Japan’s Niigata prefecture that was reopened this season after 11 years in a state of abandonment. The resort is known as a powder lover’s paradise, with 10 avalanche-controlled areas and 70% of its terrain ungroomed. Check out Lotte Arai’s latest promo video for a better look.
