Japan - NZ - Europe - Sweden .
This past winter in the Northern Hemi has been quite busy to say the least .
I started of in northern Japan just after xmas time an was there for 5 weeks in the Island of Hokkaido .
Japan had another record winter with consistent snowfalls through out January - Feb
I came home for the birth of our daughter Lilan Ursula Jackways mid February which was an amazing .
Such a cool feeling to welcome some1 so special into the world .
After being home for a month I then went to Europe to shoot with Volcom an then on to Sweden for a heli trip with Antti Autti an Arctic Guides.
Some images below of the whole season recap , there will be a couple of edits coming out also .
