The Silky Powder Road Blog describes the epic worldwide
powder adventures of Skilas and his friends.  Skilas Japan (www.skilasjapan.com) organises ski trips to the powder capital of the World: Hokkaido, Japan!

The blog was started in 2012 when Skilas organised a ski safari in Hokkaido, Japan.  This memorable trip was such an incredible success that he was inspired to write about and share his experiences.  Since then, he has skied over 250 days around the World in search of the World’s best powder destinations.

The 2013 Silky Powder Road

In 2013, The Silky Powder Road took on a 4-month Ski Adventure Tour of Asia. Travelling 65,000kms across 7 countries, Skilas, Lionski and their crew skied 100 days in over 50 resorts / ski areas.

– The ultimate search for Asia’s finest powder snow and ski destinations
– Following Asia’s iconic travel and trade routes (Silk Road, Trans-Siberian, Trans-Mongolian…)
– Making a movie (Ski adventures, Exploring local cultures, Reporting on winter sports development, Discovering new travel itineraries, Performing extreme challenges…)

The 2014-2015 season was when Skilas finally decided to permanently settle in Sapporo (Hokkaido’s main city), his ultimate powder heaven.  He has since established Skilas Japan (www.skilasjapan.com), a Japan-based ski travel company specialising in Hokkaido Ski Tours.

To join him on his adventures, please visit his website (www.skilasjapan.com), subscribe to his newsletter (http://eepurl.com/bDf7R1) or send him an email (skilas@skilasjapan.com).  He would be very happy to hear from you!
