Editor’s note

WELCOME back to another season in Niseko, and thanks for picking up a Powderlife in this, our second year. We were so buoyed by the community support for the magazine last season that we vowed to return bigger and better for winter 2008-09. There are a lot of changes to the publication this season, and it’s all being backed up and integrated with our all new website at www.powderlife.com.

WELCOME back to another season in Niseko, and thanks for picking up a Powderlife in this, our second year. We were so buoyed by the community support for the magazine last season that we vowed to return bigger and better for winter 2008-09. There are a lot of changes to the publication this season, and it’s all being backed up and integrated with our all new website at www.powderlife.com. A big ‘thank you’ must go out to our sponsors and the many new contributors from across the community who are helping us with the magazine and website.

We’re also very pleased to introduce three important new members to the Powderlife team. First and foremost, our new full-time designer, Geoff McRoberts, who is single-handedly responsible for the new look of the magazine this season, not to mention the website. Writing full-time for us this winter will be Matthew Thomas, a former News Limited newspaper journalist, who has already contributed a number of great articles to this issue, and brought a lot of valuable experience to the magazine and website. And finally the glue holding the operation together, Chika Matsuda. Chika looks after the Japanese side of the business, and so much more – we’d need another page to list everything she does. Be sure to let these guys know if you have anything you wish to contribute.

We are pleased to be able to bring you a much more comprehensive magazine this season, and as always, love to hear your feedback. We would like to start publishing readers’ letters, so if you’ve got anything on your mind, have any ideas for the magazine or website, or just want to tell us what a fabulous place you think Niseko is, put it in an email to ed@powderlife.com.

It’s going to be another amazing winter in Niseko. See you on the slopes!!
