Inka Haapala / Paromcamps Founder / Backcountry Guide
Parom’s founder Inka has skied and snowboarded almost all her life. As a kid, she lived right next to a local ski resort, where she spent all her free time skiing. Around that time, she started competing in slalom and later her skis changed to a snowboard and half-pipe competitions. After spending several seasons training, traveling and coaching in Canada and in the European Alps, she wasn’t ready to leave snow sports behind. Parom had been her dream for a long time, so “That everyone can enjoy riding, traveling and good moments with friends.” The past nine seasons Inka has been guiding in Hokkaido and nowadays lives there around the year. She has a broad knowledge of both Niseko area and Central-Hokkaido’s resorts and backcountry.
