I absolutely loathe winter, but I'm getting excited for snowboard season this year.  Already got my season pass.

I watched this the other night and would love recommendations for other snowboard videos.

That is a fucking classic.
The whole trilogy, with the other two prior movies, Lame and Afterbang are a good watch too.

There are the other classics, like the Mack Dawg movies and TB series, but outside of those I love this

Yeah, floaty as hell.

Austins whole thing is so much fun to watch, love that channel. Just noticed I'd missed an edit from Japan trip they did just before the pandemic, loved it!

That last line was insane. He got super lucky there at the end. If he hadn't somehow managed to stay upright it would have been curtains. Didn't look like there was anybody at the bottom to potentially dig him out either.

Today was the first day of boarding for me this winter.
Snow's coming pretty late this year in Hokkaido so there was only just enough to scrape together for a PVC tube sesh but it was super fun.
Always a little bittersweet though to say goodbye to skating for 5ish months (no really good indoor options in my hood) and start snowboarding.

Fingers crossed the boarders stay closed and we get one more winter with nonexistent lift lines and snow that's not tracked out days after a storm.

Kinda. But at the same time the locals and hills are hurting without that. Iím not sure the hills here can go two seasons in row with low numbers without seeing lots of stuff shut down.

I feel bad for guys like my homie who runs a sandwich van, genuine small businesses run by locals, but most of the businesses up here have been making crazy money for a long time while never giving shit back to the local community and they can fucking suck it. Same with Niseko United and all the resort's individually. Shitty, price gouging sons of bitches and they can fucking take this shit on the chin.
Unfortunately it's the really big guys who can afford to weather the storm.
I get what you are saying but it's hard to root for the doors to be flung open to share the good stuff with some of the worst tourists on earth when I don't give much of a damn about most of the people who will profit from it. God knows a name tag nobody like me won't be any better off for it, just more lift lines and more aggravation at work, at the conbini etc etc..
So fingers crossed for good snow and healthy knees either way I guess.

Gotcha, I see where youíre coming from.

Hakubaís wave came later than Niseko, itís only been the past 7,8 seasons or so that things really picked up, plus weíve been hammered with 3 shit seasons out of the last 6, so itís been a mixed bag, and while thereís been douchery for sure, it doesnít seem to be as bad as Niseko.

Lift tickets, food, and accom is still pretty affordable here. The old-school pre-foreign tourist businesses will still have their Japanese clientele, but weíre still not in a great place. One of the smaller hills will close for sure this season, with probably some other businesses doing the same.

It was nice to have powder laps in the after, I agree.

This Nitro flick had me frothing for some storms... none in sight at the moment for California, resorts are pushing back opening dates.

also happy to say I booked a week at La Plagne resort in January with the family! Hyped to get some snow boarding in finally after that lost covid year. Only down side is that I'm not gonna skate before that trip, too scared of any little injury happening before getting to the mountain.

Where are you from? I guess to an Auzzie, Japan could be kind of a Mecca. But to a Canadian, it definitely has it’s nice points, and some of the best tree riding, but in some ways it’s lacking. Like most places, I guess.

I ended up here because I’ve always been interested  in Japan since I was young, and studied the language in uni. I had a snowboard instructing license, and thought it would be a cheap way to get a season’s pass. Turns out I really enjoy instructing, and have been doing it for about 20 years now.

Japan is just where I happen to fit at this point in my life.

I don’t get Longo either. I’ve talked to someone who’s ridden with him, and said Longo was the most light-footed rider they’ve ever seen

I came to Niseko for to do a winter season and ride blower powder.
Met a nice girl working at the convenience store across the street, married her and bought a house. This is obviously a heavily condensed version of the story but that's the long and the short of it. I've been here almost 10 years now and to be honest I don't really like Japan all that much, I just like that I could buy a really affordable house 10 minutes drive from an great resort.

Longo is amazing, my missus loves him so his stuff is on a lot in our house. Right now I'm mostly bumping Cole Navin's living room and the new dustbox movie over and over and over again....

Cool! I was just curious, really. I'm in southern Sweden, so Japan is faaaaaar away - seems almost like a fictional place. And although Sweden is a northern country, I'm at least an 8 hour drive from some OK snow. Best bet is to aim for Norway...

You might not wanna hear this, but I have been scheming on a Japan-trip next season... Any tips on what to visit/try to avoid? I have no idea how the snow culture is over there...

I went to La Plagne just as Covid was hitting Ė Italy was already being shut down and we barely got out of there. But was heaps of fun riding there, some really fun and uncrowded forests!

I need to go back !

Fuck, the local resorts here in Hakuba are getting hammered, and the first opened up the top at noon today. I hadnít even pulled shit out of the closet, just set up two boards today and will get out Saturday morning.

Hopefully good coverage and no rocks!
And that my pass is ready!

Ha!  I learned to ride at the Lecht and Glenshee.  I'm jealous here in the PNW we are having big rain issues and the resort openings are being pushed back - even at Mt. Baker.

Talking about Mt Baker, Austen Sweetin's ender in WindSlab is essentially within the ski area (you have to check in at ski patrol before you hike up and across the ridge to access it from the top of the lift) it slid with a whole bunch of people watching from the lift. Gnarly.
