Our Story

Escape Myoko is not just a destination; it’s a dream transformed into reality. There is just something about Myoko that really gets under your skin. The staggering amount of Japan’s famous bottomless powder seems an obvious attraction, especially to a few seasoned bums like ourselves, but honestly, it’s something more than that. Our adventure began many seasons ago in Hokkaido, and after chasing winter around the world, we found ourselves drifting back to Japan. We believe that both equal parts, luck and determination led us to where we are today.
