FEMALE Swedish pro skiers Janette Hargin and Sara Orrensjö (pictured left) recently spent 10 days in Niseko filming for a segment of their new all-girl freeskiing movie, Catch Us If U Can. It will be the first all-girl freeskiing movie ever produced, and has received a lot of press in Sweden, where its release later this year is eagerly anticipated.

The girls, a dual GS Olympian and a Freesking World Tour competitor, are the latest on a long list of pro skiers and boarders to visit Niseko this season, also including skier Pep Fujas, among many others.
As the global shift to powder freeskiing gathers momentum, Niseko is becoming a must have on the shooting list for snow videos.

The girls got some great footage while they were here, and hit some massive jumps during a tour with Niseko Snowcat Adventures in the deep backcountry, and in Hanazono’s Strawberry Fields. "Niseko will be a big part of the movie, and since we also are making a documentary of the trip, we will include footage from Tokyo, and some temples and onsens," Sara says.

So, how did they enjoy their time here? "We had a fantastic stay," Sara says. "Cliff at Freedom Inn was an angel and helped us with so many things. Jessica Geldart from the Niseko Promotion Board was also a big help. We got lots of light fluffy powder that you almost never get in Europe. The onsens and food were a favourite. We’d love to come back!"
