With his exploits at Mt. Baker and eventually Alaska, Ranquet elevates his riding above the level of “skate-freestyle dude” to become one of the first all-mountain freestyle rippers. Toward the end of the 90’s, however, the focus of the ever-evolving freestyle snowboarding changes and Mike contemplates his own direction. We end this story kind of like we started it: with Mike skating vert. Now in Maui and fully recuperated from his hip replacement surgery, Ranquet shows us he can still rip a ramp like it’s 1992.
