The Grand Finale of 2012 will culminate with footage from Shaun McKay, Leanne Pelosi and our great friend and brother Aaron Robinson and the Manifest crew. Plain and simple, snowboarding kicks ass and anyone lucky enough to ride is blessed with the opportunity. Enjoy snowboarding my friends because it straight up rules!
Snowboarding is passion, snowboarding is inspiring and creative; it’s high fives and powder mustaches. Many of the best days to be had are in white out conditions, in the heart of the storm, yet fully comforted by the solitude of the trees. This is snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest, in our own backyard.
The true beauty of snowboarding, though, is that every person has they’re unique outlook and whether your backyard is Mt. Baker or a golf course in West Virginia we encourage you to explore that territory and reacquaint yourself with the comfort that snowboarding brings. The friendships that it strengthens and the excitement it instills.
Follow along as we portray our season every other Tuesday from now until the start of January. This is “Our Backyard,” where’s yours?
A quick edit from Kyle Miller snowboarding from earlier today at Alpine Meadows. Kyle says “A good morning of pow at Alpine Meadows, good start to the big storm ahead.”

A new documentary shines the spotlight on a unique winter sport. It’s called “splitboard mountaineering” and it uses a special board that can be used as a snowboard or split into skis as needed! Kyle Miller, a local splitboarding pioneer and the focus of the documentary called “FreeRider,” joined Margaret to talk about his love of the sport and the documentary. He also revealed a secret: he’s afraid of heights!
The FreeRider documentary will have its US premiere in Seattle on Friday, February 3 at 7:30pm, at the Mountaineers Program Center in Seattle. The event benefits the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center.

What do you think about the K2 Panoramic?
Our boy Kyle Miller couldn’t wait for the lifts to open. We get it, the dude just wants to rip and can’t hold it any longer. Well done, Kyle! Thank you SnowRev and George Crossland for documenting the smiles!
