The Freeski-Crew.com is a freeski movie production based in Innsbruck/Austria. Last season we planned a trip to Hokkaido to enjoy the worlds’ most famous powder. At Sopporo airport we met up with our guide Sam Kerr from Niseko Xtreme Tours. A piece of luck for us, because without speaking Japanese it is really hard for foreigners to explore the resorts outside the touristic centers like Niseko. Sam showed us the beautiful Japanese landscape and culture as well as the most snowy places in central Hokkaido. It was a real pleasure to shoot the driest powder we’ve ever seen in Asahidake. Without a guide like Sam it’s nearly impossible – also in Niseko – to find the best places to film for our upcoming movie. Hokkaido is an awesome place to ski, and yes it’s true, this island has the best powder in the world. Thanks Sam and Niseko Xtreme Tours to make a dream come true!

Hokkaido is our j-pow graceland, and Niseko Xtreme Tours are the ultimate tour company. We were taken to the best unshredded spots on the mountains. Our trips to Rusutsu were the some of the best boarding we have experienced. Without Sam’s knowledge it would have been just a great day at a primo resort field, but the lines he took us on were dreamtime!

Niseko Xtreme Tours are the Shiz! Sam, the owner has been shredding the Hokkaido area for longer than you’ve been snowboarding. He knows all the best spots, and where to get the fluffy white stuff. Without a good guide you’ll end up shredding runs with lots of Punters

That was the best run of my life. Thanks to the team at NXT I have a greater desire to do more RAD backcountry missions like this
Matt from Australia
Our group of 8 had an absolute blast on our backcountry touring day. Exceptional runs through the trees, exceptional scenery all toped off by exceptional service. We all commented it is one of the best ski experiences we have had.
