Floating Pyramids – A Full Length Snowboard Adventure

The Middle Path Projects presents a semi-chronological, semi-documentary style journey of a whole winter in search of powder. They follow the confines of a mythical (fictitious?) pyramid of powder in the North Pacific, “unrivaled anywhere in the world”. Washington, Alaska, Japan. The theme running through the piece, apart from some all time deep powder turns, is snowboarding with an environmental awareness as the key factor. This seems even more prevalent this spring more than most, with some resorts closing early,…

This park, the “Snowboarders Dream” was designed by Canadian Pro Riders and Olympic chargers Mark McMorris and Seb Toutant. Also with the help of Tyler Nicholson and Mikey Ciccarelli the theme for the build was the progression of style. With so…

snowboard.com Video Awards 2017: Best Bail

Bails, Slams, Rag Dolls, Tomahawks, Tacos and Scorpions. Part and parcel of the pro boarders job description. Inevitable when you’re pushing the limits of progression, but still a bit shit. That split-second, bowel wrenching feeling you get when you realize it’s all gone pear shaped. You’ve hit the kicker with too much speed and have launched yourself into no-man’s land. Or maybe not enough speed as you reach out for the transition in despair. You’ve hit that stair set at…

How to Build a Backcountry Jump Pt.1: Picking Your Zone

Being able to build a long gradual jump that chucks you onto a steep natural landing covered in pow is a dream. It is the pinnacle at the convergence of freestyle and freeriding. It will test your patience and your endurance to their maximum. To build a good jump with a long in-run could take many hours or even days. Then waiting for that final fresh layer of snow to fall will drive the anticipation meter through the roof. But…

You’ve got a perfect zone, and the snow covers the landing like a soft blanket. Now comes the hard part.

But building the jump is without a doubt worth it. This almost always takes more time than you have to spare, and more energy than you want to give it. But in the end you’ll have…
