Each year at NCMG we offer what we call the "rotating tap". These trips are for people that have skied with us before and want to try something new. In the winter of 2018 we offered a rotating tap trip to Hokkaido in Japan. With all of the stories about the deepest, driest snow and storms that would dump meters upon meters of snow, we simply had to experience this for ourselves. Needless to say we were blown away. Japan consistently lives up to its reputation, so we added Hokkaido to our yearly offerings.
