If there's one rider who tunes into the Japanese backcountry better than most, it's Nicolas Müller.

Nico's so zen he's like a some kind of slim Swiss Bhudda and his floaty style translates perfectly to the pillows and pow shrooms of Japan. Take a look at this cut of him riding in and around Hokkaido when he was filming for Eero Ettala's TV show, Tracking Eero, when Eero and Kevin Pearce had bailed to compete at the Toyota Big Air. Ok, so Eero won that contest and bagged himself a few G's but we're calling Nico the real winner here.
