Japan Snowboarding – Land of the Rising Snow

From Funner Snowboarding via YouTube:

Visit Hokkaido, Japan with Andy Stern, Seth Hill, Luke Thorington, and more for a trip into the culture, food, and mountains. Imagine traveling from Hawaii to Hokkaido, Japan to snowboard epic Siberian storms with your best buddies. Thats what our crew was able to pull off in an 18 day trip to snowboard and experience the Japanese culture. Seth Hill, Andy Stern, and Luke Thorington were snowboarding everything from urban features, to tree rides, upside down pillows, snow mushrooms, and waist deep blower pow. At night we partied and ate amazing food from the Gentem Cafe, Kabuki Niseko Teppanyaki, and had some of the best ramen in the world. We visited Grand Hirafu in Niseko and the hidden resorts of Moiwa and Chisenupuri. The best part was the never ending powder storm of snow that fell while we were there. So watch this video and experience a taste of our experience in the great snowy island of Hokkaido, Japan.
