Video: Skiing Japanโ€™s Floating Island of Rishiri

Everyone knows that Japan is an amazing ski destination with copious amounts of fresh powder to shred. But, there are still some hidden gems to be found there, as remote sections of the country still remain off the beaten path.

One such place is the so-called floating island of Rishiri, which sets in the middle of the Sea of Japan.

This island-mountain has been on the bucket-list for skiers Mary McIntyre and Parkin Costain for some time, but recently they traveled there to explore this unique place for themselves. As youโ€™ll see in this video, they got everything they could have asked for, and then some.
