The early lift program that runs in January each year is a great chance to experience the resorts minus too many other folks and if you are lucky perhaps even score an epic powder day. #360 had the opportunity to follow along with Former World Surfing Champion and WSL commentator Barton Lynch (who’s a pretty handy snowboarder) at Niseko Village to give you a bit of a feel of what it’s like having a world class resort groomer … almost to yourself.

Special thanks to Niseko United for providing Barton with passes during his stay, Burton Store Niseko for hooking him up with a fresh ride and our friends at Lodge 401 Annupuri and Niseko East Mountain Chalets for awesome hospitality and accommodation.
