Built to Ride from British Columbia, the fourth and final installment of the RIDE Snowboards web series! We're a little biased as it's filmed in our backdoor, but it's our favourite one yet!
It’s no mistake that “B.C.” is synonymous for both British Columbia and Back Country. Ride Snowboarders Beau Bishop, Trevan Salmon and Austin Hironaka packed up their sleds, brought out the snorkels and dropped in on some of the best pow lines of their year. After watching the RIDE crew rip chest deep powder, fluffy pillow lines, and perfect backcountry jumps, we're all itching to get out there for our first powder day this season!
