Watch the full edit of Kiwi ripper Will Jackways scoring some truly incredible powder conditions in Japan and see if it doesn't have you frothing for winter to return.

Japan is renowned for some of the lightest, fluffiest powder snow on the planet and Will Jackways has been making the pilgrimage out there for some time to get amongst it.

This edit documents the full extent of his most recent trip into the backcountry of Niseko in Hokkaido, and it's stuffed to the rafters with pillows, tree ducking, deep slashes and a bunch more amazing riding that could very well make you question what you're doing with your life.

We shared our time with a really amazing group of people from other riders such as Bode Merrill, Markus Keller, Yuta Kiyohara and more, as well as other friends and film crews.

You may remember seeing some of this footage in the edit that went out with Monster Energy a few months back, but this extended one incorporates some insightful commentary from Will, as well as a whole load more riding and behind the scenes footage from the trip.

Give it a watch, and see if doesn't have you Googling flights to Japan for the coming winter. The thought definitely crossed our minds...
