Snowboarding a Volcano


Former Drone Video of the Week Winner nauj brings us this fantastic drone video of a skiing scene in Japan.  It's at the foot of Mt. Iwaki, an inactive stratovolcano situated in the Aomori Prefecture in Tōhoku, the northernmost region of the island of Honshu.  Although its elevation is a modest 1.6k meters (about 5.3k ft.), it is geometrically similar to Mt. Fuji and for that reason is sometimes called Tsugaru Fuji.  Known for the quality of its snow powder, the mountain has two different ski resorts on its slopes.
