World class skiers in world class ski country! We are loving this video release featuring the amazingly talented Stephan Drake, Piers Solomon, and Santiago Guzman as they free ski the slopes right here in Niseko and around Hokkaido.

"So, what is the Weight of Winter?"we hear you ask. Well according to these riders, its all the winter force pressing down upon them as they push forward through a massive snowstorm that consumes Hokkaido. It's the blindness of an elemental world.

We think the results are beautiful with plenty of detail captured with glorious slow motion snow action as the riders carve their own distinct paths down the snowy peaks around Niseko!
