As Australia is experiencing some of the best snow conditions in nearly 20 years, check out what the crew at Warren Miller have to say about some 'real powder snow', Japow!
Japow” is a term coined to describe the legendary snowfall that embodies Japan’s skiing experience. The notorious duo Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott set off to Niseko, located on Japan’s north island, Hokkaido, and find themselves riding waves of white with local pro Nobuyoshi Chiba. North islanders like Nobu ride the snow a bit differently—they take each turn and each storm as it comes and float in a surfer-like fashion. Heavy-snow conditions have lent to a modernization of shaping and pairing boards—the new powder-specific boards can handle everything that “Japow” delivers. The snowy conditions produce a face-shot utopia, leaving Wescott and Kingwill to reflect on their lifelong aspirations. Although they may have achieved becoming professional snowboarders—as for the snow, they will “never stop chasing it.”
