■ About the FWT x Earth Hopper collaboration project
Pioneerwork Co., Ltd. calls sports performed on natural fields “Earth Sports”, and sponsors the Freeride World Tour, an international competition for skiing and snowboarding, in Japan, and an all-season pass that started in the form of a common ticket for ski resorts. We are engaged in the development and sales of “Earth Hopper”. In order to create further value in the field of earth sports, we will carry out a collaboration project that links the two businesses.
The ski resorts that host the FWT JAPAN SERIES have many slopes that are suitable for freeriding, and are also affiliated ski resorts of Earth Hopper. In addition to the campaign project “FWT23 Slope Rally” announced in December 2022, where you can win gorgeous prizes by visiting all the slopes that are FWT venues in Japan, events will be held at the ski resorts that will be venues during the tournament. It is a project limited to Earth Hopper users, and only purchased pass holders*1 can participate. From February 4th (Sat.) to 10th (Fri.), 2023, during the Hakuba Games, you can use the Earth Hopper “Hakuba Happo-One Ski Resort” up to two times for a week only, and you can ski with FWT riders. You can participate in on-site freeride sessions and safety workshops for FWT riders. Rider sessions will also be held at the Maiko/Arai venue.
We have prepared a special closed project so that the Earth Hopper is not just a common ticket for ski resorts, but a pass that further enhances the earth sports life of those who purchase it. Make sure to plan your hopping to the exciting FWT venue during the freeride competition period.

[About freeride skiing and snowboarding]
Freeriding is a new style of winter sports that allows you to enjoy the natural topography of mountains in addition to skiing on the slopes, and is gaining popularity both in Japan and around the world. In particular, Japan’s high quality powder snow is called “Japow (Japan + Powder Snow)” overseas, and Japan is internationally recognized as one of the countries where you can get the best freeride experience.
