Steve & Pj on tour with Powder Recon Jan 2012


Japan is fast becoming a favorite snow destination for Australians. With its amazing powder snow, friendly people, incredible food and culture, close proximity and affordability it’s not hard to figure out why!
With firsthand knowledge of over twenty five Japanese resorts and extensive travel throughout the country, Vortex staff can help you have a Snowboarding trip of a lifetime.

Once again this year we are stoked to partner up with Japan tour company POWDER RECON JAPAN for the 2018/19 Japan season. After personally touring with the PR team and working as a tour guide in the Myoko and Mt Bandai areas the last five years I cannot recommend their tours highly enough! Amazing snow and unspoiled culture are just the start! Come in and see us for more info and a great price. (see flyer below)
