JAPOW

Recommended Posts

Ever dream of traveling all over Japan, going from resort to resort boarding as much as you can?  This is exactly what this group of Japanese boarders have done.

Really I could have called this thread Ja-Courdory just as easily as Ja-Pow.   

This Japanese crew of boarders have created a web-site called Gelanding.com.  As best as I can guess, gelanding means to look for colder climates. 

Each video is 1 to 3 minutes long and shows a different resort from the different 'Prefectures' (Province, State, etc).  The videos also gives a quick example of the roads leading to the resort, the parking lot, the lodge, the chair lift, the view from the chair into the valley ... and a trail map of the resort.  This is followed by mellow turns and many slashes on wave like snow features at each place.  Japan really looks like a snow-surfing boarding paradise!

Cheers

Rob

I can vouch for Rusutsu on Hokkaido. Deep powder in nicely spaced trees, and freeway/autobahn wide pistes that allow GS boards to run full throttle.

Love Gelanding!!! I have been following them for a few years. I have tried to get a couple of their DVDs through friends visiting Japan, but sadly it didn't work out.
