You might be able to ditch your friends on a powder day, but you can’t ditch your kids. Terrible dad jokes aside, we owe the father figures in our life a great deal. Snowboarders or not, they carve a unique path for their children to learn from, and for that they deserve thanks. But since we are a snowboarding publication, we decided to salute dads that rip. Driving us to the hill, putting that first board under our feet, or just letting us find our own way to the mountains, the guidance from those figures have done more for us than any other guide ever will.
Father’s Day comes but once a year and the guys that put in the work on and off the hill deserve to be celebrated! They might be the only ones in snowboarding who would pick a school play over a perfect powder day. We don’t have badly designed Transworld Snowboarding ties to mail out to you, so hopefully this photo slideshow will be enough. Cheers to all the snowboarding dads out there and have an awesome Father’s Day!
