Snorkel Squad: Hakuba Cortina Trees

Blasting turns in waist deep Japanese pow

Boardworld presents "Snorkel Squad" — a new project with our good friends at Olliepop Films. Snorkel Squad takes us into the Japanese Alps, namely the Hakuba region on the main island of Honshu, Japan.

The trees at Hakuba Cortina are made for high speed, energetic mayhem. Blasting turns in waist deep powder knowing that the next lap will be just as good as the last. The Snorkel Squad arrived early in the morning as 30cm of fresh snow had fallen overnight. By the end of the day, over half a metre had accumulated as the laps got better and better. By the next morning, the lift towers were buried in snow.

Riders: Jeremy Burns​, Liam Peter Ryan​, Tim Nelson​, James Singelton and Mathew Galina​.
