Nicholas  Wolken, Lisa Filzmoser, René Schnöller and Alvaro Vogel went together with Richard Prendergast (Filmer and Editor) and Rudi Wyhlidal (Photographer) to Hokkaido, the beautiful northern island of Japan. We explored the culture and the deeper shredding of the land of the rising sun. Our time there was filled with everlasting memories of great powder, lovely people, delicious food and even more powder.
