What is The JAPOW Experience?
The JAPOW Experience is the opportunity for one lucky person to join Events Hakuba for a winter season and show the world what it is like living a winter season in the amazing Hakuba Valley. The winner will get the opportunities to immerse themselves into the Hakuba Life and experience Japanese Culture, food, apres, and as much JAPOW as they can handle.
What does the winner get?
Accommodation Digs for the season to crash when you aren’t out shredding up the mountain or enjoying the nightlife
Vehicle: You want first tracks, not a problem, with your own vehicle for the season you will get to those secret stashes first.
Hakuba Valley Season Pass: there are 10+ resorts in the valley with a season pass you will have the inside track on where to catch the best snow
The Ideal Candidate
Enjoys experiencing new cultures and is comfortable being out of their comfort zone, loves to ski/ and or snowboard, but also knows how to have a good time off the mountain, enjoys getting to know new people, and longs to experience new cultures and document their experiences. You are comfortable in front of the camera and behind it and ideally with some experience editing photos and video. You have an outgoing, likable personality and are willing to take on a challenge.
The winner will document and tell our followers the story of what it’s like to spend a season in Hakuba. They will spend their days hitting up the slopes, meeting great people, and having a good time while sharing those experiences with Events Hakuba’s Followers. At night they might be heading out to an event to enjoy the nightlife or could be working with our contributors to make sure our followers know everything that’s happening in town.
