Two weeks of continuous snowfall in Niseko at the end of January 2018 gave way to an all-time first week of powder riding on the first of February. Just ask the fortunate snowboarder featured in this video, Evan Wilcox. Here’s a few words from Evan about the video, “It Was A Thursday”:
It was a Thursday. The 1st of February, 2018. It had been snowing hard in Niseko for 13 consecutive days. This was the first day to see the sun after the huge storm, and we decided to hike and ride one of our favorite backcountry areas. Perfect bottomless powder, sinking to my shoulders and still gliding through effortlessly. This is why I live in Niseko. This video was filmed entirely on that day.
