Find Snowboarding: FRENCH ALPS Teaser
Rome Snowboard’s highly acclaimed series, Find Snowboarding, is back for a full season and will be premiering on TWSNOW. Watch the FRENCH ALPS teaser above featuring Bjorn Leines and Thomas Defino and get ready for the full release dropping on TWSNOW August 19th.
A topographic map is a beautiful thing, full of would-be lines, potential chutes and zones to explore. Potential is the key in this equation, since looking at something on paper is vastly different when you strap in at the top.
Thomas Delfino has lived in the middle of these maps figuratively and physically. He has adventured into the French Alps that surround his home in Grenoble, France countless times and every year he extends his season far into early summer; chasing the higher snow. It's this passion for snowboarding and the mountains themselves that brought together Thomas and Bjorn Leines this past May.
These remote and rugged peaks are extremely hard to access and hiking and splitboarding was the only way for Thomas and Bjorn to reach the snow. A game of calculated risks, timing and preparation found these two riding some extremely unique, yet treacherous terrain.
Find Snowboarding: FRENCH ALPS premieres August 19th here on TWSNOW. Watch the teaser above and prepare for the full edit.
