Ski to Japan New Skiing Movie "Signatures" filmed in Niseko, Hokkaido

"Signatures", a backcountry documentary film, showcases the legendary powder snow and deep winter freeride of Niseko, Hokkaido.

Niseko is very popular among skiers from abroad, and the film is extraordinary in terms of its artistic sense and its emphasis on the spiritual connection between humanity and nature. Sweetgrass Production's director Nick Waggoner approached not only riders, but also a snowsurf hand cutter and other people in the community, whose soulful Japanese is accompanied by English subtitles. While immersing yourself in the world of skiing, you might realize that the true spirit of alpine sports lies somewhere beyond the natural world.
