SnowBrains |

We want to start off by saying:  “Yes, this video is for sure fake.  But it’s pretty damn entertaining…”

Secondly, this girl is snowboarding in the backcountry without a backpack, beacon, probe, shovel, avy education, or partner.  This behavior will kill you much quicker than a grizzly bear will…

This video is “reported” to have been filmed in Hakuba, Japan on Honshu Island (the island that has Tokyo) over the weekend.

    1. Extremely low grade.
      This site is becoming a mirror of that other copy and paste site. It’s like they just copy from UN.
      Can we please have some original content?
      My days are number here.
