VBS TV: Powder and Rails with Bryan Iguchi Part 1

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 31, 2011 2:08 pm

The Season Three finale of Powder & Rails catches up with pro snowboarding legend Bryan Iguchi in the backcountry of Jackson Hole, Wyoming (i.e. the middle of nowhere) with his head stuck in a snow pit boning up on his knowledge of snow pack densities. You see, The Guch has become an experienced backcountry guide and all-around snow wizard while maintaining his reputation as a pro snowboarder. Later we find out what the heck you’re supposed to do with a loop, a crystal screen, a big saw knife, and a snow pit.  It’s always a good idea to check out the snowpack before you shred a powder filled bowl, chute or peak….

A cast consisting of Travis Rice, Kevin Jones, Dave Downing, Bjorn Leines, Mike Ranquet, Billy Anderson, Pat Bridges, and Jackson Hole O.G. Willie McMillon throw in their take on Iguchi and why he’s become so important to snowboarding. Oh, and we also dig up some dirty ole hoars-surface hoars, that is. Like, frost.
