Powder Recon Japan

History & Expertise

Powder Recon has been operating out of Myoko Kogen since 2006. The company was established by a group of friends who wanted to share their passion of the Japanese culture and incredible snow conditions that consistently fall in the Niigata prefecture.

Founder and head guide, Bryce, began his time in Japan as a kindergarten teacher in Niigata City, after years of snowboard instructing in Lake Tahoe. On days off from teaching, he would head to the mountains, exploring the multitude of ski resorts within Honshu and beyond. Over the past 15 years, Bryce has ridden in excess of 200 Japanese resorts areas, with a focus on getting the most out of resorts’ sidecountry and backcountry. Nine years on, the knowledge and work ethic Bryce has imparted to his guides has developed Powder Recon into arguably the most reputable powder enthusiast company in the area.

Our aim at Powder Recon is to provide our guests with the ultimate riding experience by tapping in to the combined local knowledge and expertise of our highly skilled guides.
