“First Descent” Trailer & Review…

22 May

As an avid snowboarder, I fully enjoyed this flick.  Excellent job of casting it right and showing the differences between riding styles, terrains, experiences, personalities, etc.  Bringing the top young stars of the sport out to AK back country to ride with experienced back country experts is something that should be ritualized for skiing and snowboarding as well and filmed regularly.  Amazing scenery and some great filming and riding.  Highly recommend it.  It’s Netflixable on DVD.

Highlights include Travis Rice tearing out of an avalanche, Shaun White’s massive 720, and Terje final line on Mt. 7601 which is the gnarliest line I’ve ever seen someone snowboard.
