Heres a couple of vids of Japanese non pros with some good carving skills.
A few little ground tricks thrown in.
You might want to put it on mute and play some of your own music though.



This next one is a snowbunny with good carving skills.

I'd say shes medium cute for a Japanese chick, there are some stunning girls on the slopes here (and anywhere else).

Shes definitely got skills though.

Last year I did a few laps with a guy and a girl in steep tree runs with deep powder. They were both boarder cross racers, but she still surprised me when she blasted by me throwing up a big cloud of powder.

I wasn't going full pelt because I was lining up a cliff drop to the left, but I was going fast enough.

She also had no hesitation in blasting through tiny gaps between trees, no hitting the breaks.

Being able to shred hard instantly increases their cuteness several fold for me.

Yes japan definately moves the goal posts when it comes to cute girls, The ratio is much higher than any other country I have been to. In saying that they all seem to look either 18 or 91. There is no middle ground lol, they stay 18 for a long time and then one day wake up and they are 91. Must be all the anti aging food they eat.

I am sorry, but that comment rubs me the wrong way. I might be a bit sensitive having spent half my life in Asia (including Japan), but it just strikes me as racial stereotyping.

Chill out SG.

My wife is Japanese and my son is half Japanese, I didn't feel this was offensive or nasty at all.

If we get too PC we won't be able to say anything or make jokes about anyone anymore.

Plus this comment is mostly saying that Japanese people and Asians in general tend to age much slower than westerners. Which is not a negative thing and stereotype or not its clearly true for the most part.

ETM also said there are more cute Japanese girls per capita than any place hes been to.

Find me a Japanese woman who objects to this statement.

Most of my English buddies have beer bellies, lots of grey hair and some balding (mid thirties).

My Japanese buddies would mostly have to pull out their ID in Europe to buy alcohol.

Thats just how it is.
Probably diet is important since I also have none of the issues my English buddies of the same age have.

Aside from this check the vids I posted, some good riding and some really good ground tricks too (although the crazy spinning is not my thing).

Technical Methods (Normalizing 130) on Vimeo

EDIT: don't know why it won't embed

ADMIN EDIT: Embeded.

To embed a Vimeo clip, use the Vimeo tag from the tool bar and ONLY put in the video ID tag; in this case "30887094" without any of the other URL data.
