Our company's brand statement is “Open Roads Await“. This expresses our group's frontier spirit of boldly running on untrodden terrain and creating new paths on our own. Athletes taking on the challenge of majestic snowy mountains and freely carving out their own gliding lines reflects our company's attitude, promting the company to join the Freeride World Tour, an international competition for the sport, and the top competition in Japan.

 

Japan Freeride Open 2024 will be a gathering of a wide range of generations, from top riders to junior and senior competitors. Events will be held in which the athletes who skied the best will be chosen by audience voting.

 

Through our support for sports and athletes, we will continue to support everyone who pursues their own path and takes on challenges.
