Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott Ride Niseko in Warren Miller Segment
This autumn, catch Warren Miller's 65th ski and snowboard film, No Turning Back.
Warren Miller’s annual film tradition marks the beginning of colder weather and the un-official pre season party. Revel in winter’s heritage as the world's best athletes push boundaries in winter playgrounds across the globe including powder Japow - Niseko, Japan.
"Japow” is a term coined to describe the legendary snowfall that embodies Japan’s skiing experience. The notorious duo Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott set off to Niseko, located on Japan’s north island, Hokkaido, and find themselves riding waves of white with local pro Nobuyoshi Chiba.
Heavy-snow conditions have lent to a modernization of shaping and pairing boards—the new powder-specific boards can handle everything that “Japow” delivers. The snowy conditions produce a face-shot utopia, leaving Wescott and Kingwill to reflect on their lifelong aspirations. Although they may have achieved becoming professional snowboarders—as for the snow, they will “never stop chasing it.”
