Magical visuals and breathtaking backcountry snowboarding from Akifumi Hiraoka in this new powder-filled edit from Heart Films.

Heart Films have been flying the flag for Japanese backcountry riding out in Canada for the last few seasons and have been doing an incredible job of it.

Akifumi Hiraoka, who has competed in contests like the Air & Style and Toyota Big Air over the years, has become one of the pioneers in showing the incredible Canadian Backcountry to the Japanese people.

Heart Films have put together this special part for Aki which is essential viewing for anyone who enjoys the feeling of riding powder. The beautiful visuals, combined with the ambient jazz guitar played by Aki's friend Yosuke Onuma make for an amazingly immersive watch. Yosuke supposedly made the song specifiaclly for Aki after watching his riding and images.

Here's more from Heart Films about Aki:

Aki always pushes himself, doesn't care about age and having fun before everything else is his style which makes people who surround him laugh and be positive.
