On Sunday October 2nd, MnK hosted a global premiere of “The Fourth Phase” at The Orchards Niseko. “The Fourth Phase” is the latest snowboard film from Red Bull, Travis Rice and Brain Farm and was highly anticipated given the previous film “Art of Flight” was such a groundbreaking sports film.
Around 120 people turned up throughout the night, with many of them sticking around for the 9pm premiere screening of the film. Either that or they came for the awesome BBQ we put on before the movie, cooked by our staff and prepped by Green Farm Cafe! A few photos of the night are below:
By all accounts the BBQ was a great success with a mixture of local families, workers and tourists enjoying the healthy mix of salads, burgers, hand made sausages and vegetables being lovingly served up. After the BBQ the crowd headed into the Orchards Multi-purpose space to settle in for the film.
The second section of the film was all about Japan, so people were definitely getting excited. The cinematography throughout was amazing and the community loved the opportunity to come out with friends and family and see the movie before its official release to the public. While you must now purchase the full movie- there are several free web episodes showing a bit of riding and behind the scenes. The Japan episode just came out and is below:
After seeing all the incredible scenes of snow, a few of us realised there was still some gear that we needed to get ready before the snow arrives. If you are in the same boat and need to talk about rental of skis and snowboards or booking of lessons, please contact our guest service team here.
This winter The Orchards multi-purpose space will be facilitating a range of great events and classes but we have space for more! Already booked in are Avalanche Skills training courses by Rising Sun Guides (providing invaluable knowledge for anybody who is interested in having greater awareness and a safer time up the mountains). Also Edventure Winter Camp will be kicking off their kids winter camps as well as Yoga classes that are already underway! Check the calendar at the bottom of this page on our website for an up to date schedule of what’s on.
