Last week we had an email from one of our valued Powder Detourees and good friend Bob Williams. The email title was “Good news, bad news, good news”.

Bob has been nominated as one of the snowboard officials for the 2013 Special Olympics Word Winter Games in South Korea (Bob’s been running a programme for adaptive skiing and snowboarding in New Zealand for the past 5 years).

This is a first for New Zealand, so it’s a big moment. We’re super proud of Bob, so we thought we’d put together a little image sequence of him shredding some Niseko powder from earlier this year…

Bob’s bad news was that the dates conflict with our main 2-week Hokkaido Tour, which Bob was planning on joining next year. We’re doing what we can to make it work.

Well done Bob!
