When it comes to riding powder, Kimmi Fasani operates in a league of her own. Some pople say she’s the best female backcountry rider out there. We disagree. We think she’s one of the best back country riders full stop.
As such, it’s no surprise that when Big B got her to film a part for their Burton Presents web series, the American ripper went straight to the deep stuff. Japan and Whistler in Canada to be specific. Not a bad days work, eh?
” Snowboarding’s more than a passion; it’s my way of life”
The edit isn’t all face shots in deep powder. It also looks at Fasani’s recovery from a horrible knee injury suffered last season. She talks about the year-long training she had to go through to get back to the top.
It’s inspiring to hear somebody talking about putting the pain behind them, and focusing on the goal – something we could all learn to do from time to time.
However, before long the powder porn begins, and we see Kimmi split-boarding, blasting tree lines, smashing through pillows, and ripping powder at night. If you don’t get a dust horn watching this, you need to check your pulse.
