    Hey all on ski.com!

    My name is Christie and I'm a presenter on Powder TV, which is web based television offering visual information on Niseko and the surrounding area. We do snow reports every day (which is VERY easy to do here – always snowing!), as well as restaurant reviews, cultural segments and weekly entertainment guides. It's a lot of fun for us to produce and we aim to provide people with information that will help them plan their trip to Japan and help them decide what to do when they arrive. We also promote a lot of local businesses. Most of the information is in Japanese and English.

    If you would like to have a look, please go to www.skihanazono.com and click on the link to Powder TV. I’m happy to hear your thoughts on the site.

    I'm sure you'll all be glad to know it has been snowing VERY heavily here in Niseko for the last few days and there is plenty of that famous Niseko POW out there for everyone! Good news for anyone who’s on their way over.

    Cheers, Christie

    Hey Christie - I am moving this thread over to the Snow Talk Commercial Forum as it is better placed there.

    Your site looks good, keep up the good work :thumbs:

    Been watching your reports most days since last season.

    Lots of celebrity interviews this year too.

    Tosh is a legend, love his "australian" accent that he can turn on, then straight back to Japanese.

    You have a great job [​IMG]
