How Cam Fitzpatrick and Bryan Iguchi Prepare for the Winter

Bryan Iguchi and Cam Fitzpatrick have long had a mentor/mentee relationship in the mountains. Fitzpatrick was raised in Iguchi's adopted home of Jackson Hole and they built their relationship in the backcountry, the older rider sharing the secrets and tips that come from years of riding these legendary mountains. More recently, Fitzpatrick has found offseason purpose at  Crossfit Jackson Hole at Teton Sports Club.

The same movement that has created heroes of such figures as Rich Froning and Mat Fraser is now helping some of Jackson's snowboarders prepare for the rigors of the mountains. Under the tutelage of Teton Sports Club trainer, Tim Gibbons, Fitzpatrick has spent the past years training in the gym so he can perform in the mountains. More recently he has brought Iguchi into the gym so they can train together. 

When we met up with the pair the workout of the day (WOD) was "Adrian". This workout is named after U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Adrian Elizalde, 30, of North Bend, OR,  of the 2nd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne). He died on August 23, 2007, in Baghdad, Iraq, of wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device.

The Backstory of Travis Rice’s “King Kong” Pillow Line

Remember the “King Kong Pillow Line” Travis Rice broke the internet with last winter? Of course, you do; it’s impossible to forget. It turns out that line was part of a much bigger scout mission up in British Columbia for Rice’s Natural Selection tour. He was joined by Sierra Nevada athlete Robin Van Gyn, Austen Sweetin, and Blair Habenicht for a trip that was equal parts work and play. It’s safe to say that they found what they were looking for and

The Tetons are just one of those ultimate gathering places for the shred community – with unparalleled access to some of the best riding, deepest snow, and craziest lines in the world. In other words, there’s a reason so many pro snowboarders spend so much time here. This is Us In – a project put together by Cam Fitzpatrick and friends – presents an intimate look at that community in their upcoming feature film Coalescence.

The Quiksilver Team Had an Insane Winter at Mount Baker

The Quiksilver Team Had an Insane Winter at Mount Baker

The plan was simple: drive around North America in an RV looking for the best stashes of snow. However, things quickly derailed for the Quiksilver team after their first stop at Mount Baker. Honestly, though, they should have seen this coming. Anyone who’s ridden there will say the same thing: it’s hard to leave. Rather than fight it, Travis Rice, Austen Sweetin, Mathieu Crepel, Bryan Fox, Griffin Siebert, and Miles Fallon hunkered down in the Baker parking lot making the best of their failed
