There’s something very real about the recent release from Line Skis, which features team rider Eric Pollard and his 20+ crew doing laps of Rusutsu and hitting as many natural features as they can along the way. Without the drama and overproduction that often accompanies ski edits, we’re left with a very good skier doing pow laps and a few of his mates (and then some) at one of Japan’s best ski resorts. The excitement and enjoyment is palpable, and there’s very little on display that you wouldn’t find on your own sidecountry excursion in Rusutsu.
