For this season, the rider list will include some of the premiere competition, urban and backcountry talent in the game, including the likes of Torstein Horgmo, Lonnie Kauk, Stevie Bell, Justin Bennee, Chas Guldemond, Eero Niemela, Dan Brisse, Bjorn Leines, Luke Mitrani, Marko Grilc, Sebastien Toutant, Shayne Pospisil, Greg Bretz, Louie Vito, Jake Welch, Heikki Sorsa, Darrell Mathes, Jake Olsen-Elm, Louif Paradis, Nick Dirks, JJ Thomas, Jack Mitrani, LNP, Eiki Helgason and many more. They’ll be breaking down and teaching you both signature and set-up tricks on a wide variety of jumps, rails, pipes and creative jibs, all played host by Keystone, Winter Park, Northstar-at-Tahoe and Sierra-at-Tahoe.

One of the highlights to this year’s film comes with the inclusion of the new “ATML” model, brought on by our friends at the American Associate of Snowboard Instructors (AASI). A proven formula for learning new tricks quickly and safely, ATML (Approach, Take-Off, Manuever, Landing) provides a progressive teaching structure for the riders to both explain and demonstrate exactly what your body and board need to do to properly step your game. This doesn’t mean that the fun and relaxed style of the 20 Tricks line will be lost, however – instead, it allows the riders to be themselves, offer more detailed airs and rails, and with it now being available to them, not have to stress about the teaching process at all. What does all this mean for you? You know that Cab 7 or 180 switch tail you’ve been taking digs on all season? After you’re done checking out and listening to the wise detail of Dan Brisse and Darrell Mathes, you’ll never have to suffer through a stair massage or chairlift heckler ever again.
