Filmed in the Hokkaido backcountry, Flow stars Taiyo Nakashani shredding deep powder during the stellar 2021-22 Japan season. No bouncy short turns here – just long, fast lines as Taiyo gets into the flow.

Nothing quite like cranking fast, big turns in light powder

Taiyo Nakanishi and Yasuyuki Shimanuki present FLOW:

“Flow of nature, flow of snow, flow of ski line and movements, we always focus on the flow of nature, snow conditions, weather, and seasonal changes so we can connect with our flow of ski lines and movements.

We had an amazing powder season in Hokkaido, Japan with La Niña climate, bottomless cold smoke, diamond dust powder snow, perfect bluebird days, freezing cold temperatures, and the deep blue landscape of the mountains in Hokkaido.” – Yasuyuki Shimanuki
