K2 Channels ‘90s Angst with Sean Pettit Park Session

Oh the ‘90s. It was the decade of Doc Martens, frosted tips, Tamagotchi pets, and the glory days of snowboarding. The sport was coming into its own and thrived by being a scrappy subculture that didn’t play by the rules. Hip hop and grunge reigned supreme during these angsty teenage years, and park laps at resorts like Big Bear Mountain were all the rage. K2 decided to pay tribute to these formative years with Sean Pettit, Bar Dadon, and Jayell White on a vintage board set up. It’s giving us all the feels. Could we go back to these simpler times right now?

Makes me want to dig out my old VHS copies Simple Pleasures or Young, Brown, Walsh.

Boys are crazy! Keep up the good work. I’d love to see more of this adventures.
Best regards,

"Freeriding" as we know it today was the near-exclusive domain of snowboarders, but was rapidly gaining popularity thanks to one-plankers like Matt Goodwill, Mike "Tex" Davenport, and Steve Klassen. Inspired by Alaska's legendary King of the Hill big-mountain-freeride competition, organizers dreamed up a similar event to be held in the iconic Swiss

Escape To The Icy Steeps of Chamonix With Sam Favret’s Waking Dream

It’s not new that skiers and snowboarders have been riding the edge in Chamonix for many years, but a few years ago, a film emerged that truly showcased that edge in all its raw, rugged, extreme beauty. Sam Favret and Julien “Pica” Herry’s 2017 masterpiece brought us right into the heart of steep riding in one of the gnarliest places on the planet, into a sort of dream state where things we never thought possible do in fact occur.

It may come a shocking surprise to anyone who reads TGR regularly, but I’m a skier. With that in mind, I’m a big fan of full-length films these days, especially getting a good hard look at some classics from the snowboard world, like the Manboys re-release of their 2016 classic In all honesty, I’ve probably spent more time watching snowboard films in recent days than anything else. It’s a whole new world! RELATED: Stay STOKED – TGR’s Best Free Content All jokes aside, we’re stoked that the
