We recently had the opportunity to venture over to Niseko, Japan as a part of DC's The House of Powder trip. Alongside DC collaborators FTP, ROKIT and 40s & Shorties, we all hit the slopes to test out DC Snowboarding's yet-to-be-released outerwear and top-end boards, including FTP's collaborative 156 snowboard and a special The House of Powder board made specifically for riding the Japanese powder.

Niseko is widely regarded as the "powder capital" of the world, receiving more snow and dryer powder than virtually anywhere else on the planet. Snowfall is nearly twice as much as most resorts in North America, as Niseko is bombarded with roughly 580 inches of snowfall each year.

Alongside representatives from FTP, ROKIT and 40s & Shorties, DC pro snowboarders Iikka Backstrom, Justin Fronius and Torstein Horgmo led the way in shredding the fresh powder of Niseko. After snowboarding at the Niseko United resort, we continued the adventure by hopping on Snowcats at The House of Powder to tackle even deeper snow. To unwind, we then took advantage of the geothermal hot springs known as "onsen," followed by a tour of the local Izakaya bars.

FTP, ROKIT and 40s & Shorties each have new collaborative projects with DC. FTP's collection released earlier this month, while ROKIT and 40s & Shorties are on the way next season. Head here for a chance to win a free DC x FTP snow kit.
