burn energy are adding another string to their bow with Real Snow. It’s going to add a new dimension to the Winter X Games in Tignes and it’s part of Human/Machines so, all in all, it’s set to showcase the contrasting schools of snowboarding. Still a bit confused?
Short version is that 8 big name riders will travel the globe to seek the best backcountry hotspots to films their 90 second video part. With the riders that have been announced we’re expecting some huge airs, epic lines and a few ridiculous cliff jumps to say the least. Out of the 8 riders, 3 winning films will be picked and awarded with European Winter X Games medals and a €10,000 prize for the fan’s choice!
Who’s competing for this prize I hear you shout? It’s a who’s who of snowboarding as burn throw together Gigi Rüf, Mathieu Crepel, Iikka Backstrom, Devun Walsh, Nicolas Müller, Jussi Oskanen, John Jackson and Mark Sollors. All the video parts dropped yesterday on the burn energy Facebook page so head over there to watch the fruits of labour!
But before you do, make sure you get teased here with this little edit. Ladies and Gents, I introduce to you – Real Snow Backcountry.
