We found him 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. Click here for episode 1.

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.

We were so intimidated by Bryan Iguchi’s mountaineering man-skills in Part One that we made him do the sit-down interview in a fluffy white chair so we wouldn’t feel like such sissies in Part Two. He takes us back to his Southern California roots as an up-and-coming skateboarder introduced to snowboarding at Big Bear Mountain.
