Well that was exciting! Respect to all of those who competed today and @jacksonhole for keeping the west wild. @gopro #hero7black and a few more feet about to drop.
@jacksonhole is going Hasselhoff tomorrow! King’s and Queens event in Corbet’s Couloir is on for tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10 am, depending on when the mountain opens as we getting over a foot tonight. Snowboarder here is @_mikeymarohn with my favorite line last year.. last pic was weeks ago, Park and Pipe threw up some Woo Bangers in there since. Live broadcast on @redbullsnow Facebook .I drew 3rd drop! Going to be blower-
This little article about FIS in my Bio brings a smile to my face... and @protectourwinters has a petition worth signing to encourage ditching yet another old and out of touch powerful man. Better times are ahead...
Last week’s @freerideworldtour was an epic for me. Such a great group of people and Hakuba area was kind enough to give us a stellar day in the mountains! Felt good to get nervous in the start gate again! Big ups to the other top podiums, @markus1eder, @lavi_ann for snowboard woman, and @ari_tricomi. I was a wildcard into the event after winning a 4 star event 2 years ago and trying to compete last year but it was canceled due to some dangerous conditions. The organization was kind enough to grant me a pass through wild card to the next event in Kicking Horse in early Feb from my win. However, I am unable to attend that event due to a personal schedule conflict so I respectively decline. I will definitely be watching though as this years rider list is the best yet! Thanks for all the support from so many out there and check the link in my bio for a pretty interesting edit that FWT cut about putting lines like this together.. @quiksilver @dcshoes @libtechnologies @unionbindingco @redbull @gopro @skullcandy @jacksonhole @bluebirdwax @remindinsoles
Here we GO..! @freerideworldtour competition running today, Friday. Snowboard Men drop first- Booya- 8.30 am Tokyo Time... looking forward to this run! Conditions looking to be mostly POW...
An epic last day in Jackson...

Glory Days— @chucktah @jimmy_chin @jacksonhole
Ice Foil🤘🏽 Haha- few weeks ago conditions were just perfect for some ice breaking and hallway hunting. A few bruises later, @liftfoils E-foil was still good as new. This thing is tough as the titanic.! Here’s to winter, doesn’t mean you have to let go of summer... Still looking for that Iceberg long and skinny chute.!
YES.!! IKIGAI Short film is LIVE (12 minutes). The past 2 years we have been following @shinbiyajima around his exotic backyard and immersed in the beauty of the Japanese wilderness and culture. The result here is an intimate portrait of a great friend of mine, and his process as a professional Japanese snowboarder. Link in Bio... turn it up, throw on some headphones and watch the High Res! Enjoy this passion project from me and @jtaylorsmith.
@chrisrasman has his own ProModel- and it’s BAD ASS! Psyched to Collaborate with Rasman and @libtechnologies on this! Chris has been charging and ManBoy stomping for so many years on my Lib Boards. The T-Rice Pro board that is now a limited run Late release of the T-Ras in a 159 won’t be around for long! Congrats Chris, I know your just getting started!
😂— we noticed an inconsistency over dinner on a fabulous piece of art by @dawngeretyart .. This painting was based on an image taken by @scottserfas during the filming of @redbull Art Of Flight film like 8 years ago while up @tordrilloheli... haha, in all fairness I believe this piece was a commission. Probably the first art piece I have ever graffitied...Chef @jspisak you RULE! Check out our edit from last year Titled Truffle Pigs with @chrisrasman
Thanks for the mash up edit @GoPro… Last year was an incredible year for me shared with both old and new friends. 🍻Here's to worldwide family this holidays. 🌨
I want to introduce you to Bueller-!!! I love this guy. He was SO psyched to go take a run with us and go Agro Build mode on this jump we put up at @tordrilloheli last spring. They have such a great staff and Bueller was SO fired up on getting to help us throw up a somewhat technically constructed wedge up against this rock face.. Thanks for your help man! Don’t think we would of finished with out your beast mode, back breaking, block lifts!😂.. Truffle Pigs at @quiksilver site.. in the Blog.. Long live the Bueller!!

The Wings For Life spinal cord research foundation has been a leading force trying to find a cure and help prevent what over 250,000 thousand people suffer from each year. Since the founder of @redbull, Dietrich Mateschitz, created it, it has funded cutting edge research and awareness for spinal cord injury since 2003. Side note, see what Jesse Billauer is doing with LifeRollsOn. Also the film “Any One of Us”, the Paul Basagoitia story of one of the best Downhill Mountain Bikers really gives a window into this world if you haven’t personally scene or experienced the impacts on the lives of everyone around these injuries. Holidays are coming up and proceeds of these Lokai bracelets go towards finding a cure. These bracelets have water from the highest point on earth, Everest, and mud from the lowest point on land, the Dead Sea in it! As they put it... “Sometimes your on top, stay humble.” “Sometimes you’ve hit a low, stay hopeful.” Link in Profile.. this organization is amazing- pretty dope little bracelet...
Just a pig on a ridge, letting the nose and intuition seek out the the little gems. Check out Truffle Pigs, link in Bio. Live now thanks to @Quiksilver and @TordrilloHeli... @GoPro stable 7 vision.
I love how this board turned out this year! We set out to throw the “Kids” board mentality in the trash and replace it with a “young rippers” board! @libtechnologies knows where the future is at! High performance, no compromises for our young rippers... @cannon_cummins no-doubt has all the skills to push this board to its potential... Art by Jackson’s own @mawrq
