Yukiguni also known as Snow Country is a place that receives a huge amount of snow because of the northern winds coming across the sea of japan. The winds accumulate moisture over the sea & deposit it as snow while running up again the mountains. The snow reaches up to five meters & can sometimes isolate towns & villages.

Arbor Snowboards :: Video Log – Superpark 19
from Arbor Collective
Breaks in the weather were few and far between at Superpark 19. Fog, rain, and a heavy cloud cover characterized the majority of the week at Seven Springs, Pennsylvania. That didn’t stop Arbor riders from all corners of the country from converging on an amazingly constructed setup for 5 days of non-stop shredding.
RED RUN | The Abandoned Ski Village
from SALT-STREET Productions
Sheffield Ski Village closed in April 2012. We took two skiers and one boarder back to the charred remains of the dry ski slope where they learned to ski. The ski village was a key piece in the journey of some of the UK’s best freestyle skiers to the top of their sport, including James Woods, James Machon, Ellie Koyander and Katie Summerhayes, all of whom are now Team GB athletes.
Our aim is to drum-up support for the Sheffield Ski Village in the city known as the sporting capital of the United Kingdom.

KORUA Shapes – YEARNING FOR TURNING Vol. 2 – Carving Europe
from KORUA Shapes
Here it is! Volume 2 of our series YEARNING FOR TURNING. With “Carving Europe” we wanted to portrait a style of riding that is very familiar to most of us. Having a blast with friends, riding the local resort and making the best of it. We went on three short trips with our campers, also known as car danchis, to try and capture the magic moments on and off the slope.
