A short film looking at our preparation in the pre season. This was filmed between 22-29 December in various locations in Central Hokkaido. A little safety and a little fun checking out all the locations we will be skiing this season. The snow cover is good with some vegetation still need to be properly buried. We have experienced a rain event on Christmas day and a crust with sugary snow grains was found. We will be keeping an eye on how this will affect the snow pack during the season. Wishing everybody a safe and fun season ahead.
