"A DREAM IS NOT JUST WHAT YOU HAVE BUT WHAT YOU MAKE COME TRUE."
"For me, skiing is life – but life didn't start until I turned 19. My dad took me skiing when I was a kid but I wasn’t obsessed until I moved to Whistler. There I started skiing seriously and decided my dream was to become a Pro Skier. I'm so happy to be an Atomic athlete because it has always been my dream. The Japanese freeride scene is just developing as we speak. I want to help the freeride culture grow in Japan – that is my next goal."
