There are no ski areas on the peaks above the historic village of Shirakawa-go, but it’s surrounded by great skiing—as long as you’re willing to hike for it. Carston Oliver, Eliel Hindert, Pep Fujas and Makoto Takeishi take to the hills to discover the meaning of “Deep” in the Shirakawa backcountry. (This Sweetgrass Productions short is Episode Two in Patagonia’s Find Away series).
