Beautiful video! I guess we beat you there by 2-3 weeks but man this video is everything we love about niseko. I spent 14 days there starting 5th jan. :)

Looks like you had an awesome time there!

one of my friends.
3 runs in a row. same one!
It was very low altitude and very wide so luckily just climbed out each time.
a bit higher up there were some pretty deep and narrow cracks (especially out on the jacksons slope). pretty sketchy.

Sweet vid man. I was in the Powder Kingdom myself in Feb of 2011, what an incredible place. It just does not stop snowing =D I think I recognised some of the tree areas you went through.

I rode myself in to the ground though, my fitness wasn't up to deep powder and we rode from first to last lifts with a half hour lunch break day in day out. I spent the first day off the mountain unable to get out of bed because of a pain in my hip. Worth it.
