Shredding from Ben and Ryan. The soundtrack is from them too!
Snowboarding; although young, is reaching a point where traditions and legends are becoming more and more established. Nowhere does this seem more prevalent than at Mt. Baker and the most resent Mt Baker Banked Slalom was no different. Please read on as K2 rider Marcel Dolak explains his contribution to snowboarding’s traditions. This one will send shivers down your spine, I promise.

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.”
He’s weird yet calculated. He’s confident yet humble. He’s a country boy with good ol country style and he fucking rips on a snowboard. Travis parker’s protégé and our good buddy, Ben Lynch. We expect to see more from this hill billy in the near future but for now take a look at what Ben’s been up to so far this season.

Snowboarding is much more than just banger after banger; It’s a journey, it’s euphoria, it’s pain, it’s excitement, it’s fear, it’s meeting new people, it’s sending it, it’s SNOWBOARDING.
Aaron was always the driving force behind this project. When it seemed like things weren’t gonna work out he always found a way to make it happen. He loved a challenge! I spent this last winter traveling around to many of his favorite places, meeting up with friends, and making some new ones along the way. I feel so lucky to have been able to share such great times with such an amazing person.
When Aaron passed away in Chile this last July it was hard to even think about the movie, let alone sit down and edit hours of his footage from the winter. It wasn’t until Blake Paul sent me an email highlighting the fact that one of Aaron’s goals all season was to get everyone down to Chile and film a segment for the movie that I came to realize something that should have been so obvious. We had to head South and finish what he had started. Although we were physically missing the one person who really should have been on that trip I feel like he was actually with us more than ever. We’ll miss you A-ROB!
