The guys from Hokkaido Core are kicking off a very cool photo competition – Niseko Shootout. A photo contest that hope could some day turn into an invitational event for photographer/ pro-rider teams with different categories and different days at each mountain.
Here is a shout out from Winse:
“We are incredibly proud and excited to announce the 2017-2018 Niseko Shootout!
With the support of @powderlife_com and @icelantic_skis we’re seeking the season’s best, uniquely Niseko, ski and snowboard photographs. The rules are simple…
