Japow 2.0

After an amazing last night shred in Niseko we hit the road to Asahidake.
It was a long drive but luckily we had Fips with us who was catching up enough sleep for the whole crew!
In Asahidake we had one amazing blue bird day with a perfect view over this beautiful winter paradise.
 We used the good light to hike up closer to the volcano and check out the spots where the hot and stinky steam comes out of the rocks.
We actually found a good spot to build a jump right next to these massive clouds.

But of course such good weather is an exception in Japan at this time of the year and we soon turned back to dark clouds and hiking days in the woods...
 In the end you definitely spend much more time hiking and looking for stuff than what you actually came here for which is Snowboarding...
 The woods are really tight out here but sometimes you can find a way to make advantage of this fact...

Delicious conditions. Einfach klasse Mensch!
On the downdays we either had some amazing sushi of course...
... or I actually had to do some work for university. But the view out of my window gave me a hard time to forget about the snow.
  The amount of snow out here really is amazing. Especially as the snow can be so light, that you sink in waist deep but can still move like it was nothing. 
We keep praying for more!
