The Black Yeti will soon arrive in Japan for another great edition of the Young Guns Rookie Fest that will take place on February 16th in Takasu.

Takasu Snow Park is located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture. The resort is on the eastern slopes of Mt. Dainichi, part of the Ryohaku mountain range. Takasu Snow Park has been operating since 1999 and it’s well known in the country for its halfpipe, the “nihon ichi” (best in Japan), thanks to the support of Global Snow Design.
