Xavier De Le Rue DIY powder mission in Nozawa Onsen

Xavier De Le Rue is a name that conjures up lines in stupidly steep alpine terrian, and ice… terrifying amounts of ice… but everyone needs to take a break and get deep in Japan sometimes. There is no ice evident in this part of his DIY video adventures, as he scored all-time snow in Nagano’s Nozawa Onsen. You may notice he’s not riding on his usual freeride weapon, but on a new powder shape for 2018: the Rossignol Sushi splitboard. You can see him talking more about the board here:
