ME , HANS KESTILA and JOEL LAHTI hanging at Mt.Asahidake

I spent last 7 days in Asahidake Japan which is located around Hokkaido highlands.

no internet , not the best phone reception and away from all the bussiness pleasures.

it was my best week so far during this season.the best powder and so much good natural terrain to ride.here is few behind the scenes photos while we were filming for upcoming movie.

I did this frontside turn before I went thru 2 trees that formed a small tunnel.

For Rossignol rider Hans Kestila...Japan was all times!He has great attitude for snowboarding!

My Billabong team mate Joel Lahti really wanted to hit this pillow all week while were in asahidake.probably because he saw Nicolas Muller hit it in Neverland movie.well Joel hit it and did it well

My back was quite sore during this jump session.so I ended up just hitting it couple times but this switch bs 180 felt pretty nice.we were jumping over the first roller in this picture.so it was quite hard to get enough speed to make the landing.Im happy that I focused on more riding natural terrain than building jumps during this trip.
