Day and Night Niseko

One morning and one night. The same day. When Niseko turns it on she gives you fresh powder morning, afternoon and evening – 12 hours of FUN!

Are you in Niseko at the moment? How are you enjoying the awesome snowfalls we’ve been getting recently?

Footage filmed on 17th January at Niseko Village and Grand Hirafu resorts.

Niseko Week One

Another fantastic start to a season in Niseko with a reported snow base of 175cm having accumulated on the mountain by December 1st, 2012.
With Niseko Hirafu opening as scheduled on 23rd November, here are a few highlights from the first week of the 2012/13 winter season. See you when you get here!

Point and Shoot: Japan 2012

Point and Shoot: Japan 2012 is a mash up of footage from Nimbus Independent that didn’t make the final cut while editing for their epic En Route Hokkaido film. Too many good ski shots and hilarious moments to let go to waste. Enjoy.



All You Can Eat Niseko

A few Hokkaido highlights from winter 2011/12 in Japan to help ease powder withdrawals as we look forward to the 2012/13 season.

Did you ski or snowboard in Japan last season? What were your highlights? Tell us about your experiences.

Footage filmed in Niseko & Rusutsu between December 2011 – March 2012.

Generation Snow

Superb video from Generation Snow featuring deep powder, tree skiing and awesome backcountry lines as Olympian Steve Lee explores Hakuba, Japan with alpine racer Stephanie Auderer.

Also featuring the wonderful Phoenix Hakuba (which you can book with Japan Ski Experience!).

Tell us about your best Hakuba experience. When were you there? Share your experiences below or send us a video to show how deep you got!

Unicorn Sashimi

Hands down one of the best short ski & snowboard videos I’ve seen for a long time. Set in and around Niseko, you almost expect the snow conditions to be that good but the cinematography on show is breathtaking. If it reminds you of the award-winning Signatures, that could be because the makers, Felt Soul Media, teamed up with Sweetgrass Productions to get this footage. Press play and start the weekend with a smile on your face.
