EZO – A Short Powder Movie


“From the Land of the Midnight Sun to the Land of the Rising Sun”

EZO follows Krister Kopala and his friends on an epic journey from Tromso in Northern Norway to the North Island of Japan, Hokkaido.

Krister Kopala grew up surrounded by snow, but January in Norway isn’t ideal for snowboarding. 24-hour darkness, erratic weather and temperatures well below minus 20 force these guys to find snowboarding opportunities abroad.

This year they’re landing in six meters of deep, fresh Hokkaido powder!

Directed, produced and shot by: Kristian Kvam Hansen. Produced for PUSH

Riders: Krister Kopala, Michael Stoerdal, Truls Berg, Roy Olsen, and friends

Additional Cinematography: Charles Lanceplaine
