6 Weeks in Japan

Post by Sonny » Sun Mar 10, 2013 12:46 pm

So the time finally came to try this winters new builds.

We brought 3 of our snowboards (2 splits) and 2 pairs of skis to the deep snow in Japan. :)

We took alot of pictures and I shot some video and put together one for each of the three ski resorts we visited. Here are the result.
All the Gopro footage is me skiing on my own made skis. I'm so happy they performed well and lasted trough the trip.
I'm definitely going to change some things about them but thats why we do this, right? :)

Part I: Niseko, 15 days.

Beautiful photos Sonny
3 of the best resorts in Japan in 6 weeks - very jealous.
I haven't been to Myoko but heard/seen good things about it.
Early January in Niseko looked pretty special this year, although I'm not complaining at all about the snow we got!
Don't wait up, I'm off to kill Summer....
