The 2016 Tenjin Banked Slalom official movie has dropped. Okaken Cinema has raised the bar with this year’s edit. Mixing drone and gimbal follow-cam footage seamlessly it captures the feeling of riding this winding work of snow art. Smooth equals fast in banked slaloms: For those wondering how the fast times are made, Men’s champ Takafumi Konishi is at 2:27 and fifth placer ripper Goro Komatsu flows down the lower section at 3:04.
It also shows the sterling work done by the organisers from the start gate line up to the prize giving, and the welcoming atmosphere with smiles all round – for the full write up, check our 2016 Tenjin Banked Slalom event report here.
