The sequel to the most famous snowboarding movie in the past decade is almost ready to hit the big screen, and the preview has just dropped.

Art Of Flight first hit our screens back in 2011 and since then has become short-hand for high-budget snowboard films. Anybody that's spent any amount of time arsing about on snow will have seen the film at least once.

Most of us have ran out of enough fingers to count the times we've sat there, watching Travis Rice and pals hooning around, nipple deep in powder.

So, as you can imagine, the excitement already generated the the teaser for the new film, titled The Fourth Phase, is greater the time the tabloids got hold of up-skirt pics of the old man from the John Lewis Christmas advert.

Details about the new movie are pretty vague at the minute, other than the fact that the global premier will be on 2nd October 2016.

But fear not, dear reader. Since it dropped late last night, we've watched the Fourth Phase teaser a bunch of times, and this is what we've learnt so far:

1) Travis Rice Is Back
