TransWorld SNOWboarding December 2015 Issue Out Now

Only 28 minutes into the auction, the first bidder hit at 255 dollars. Within three hours, 53 people had viewed the page and two sent private messages offering to buy the board offline, one for 800 dollars, saying, “My grandson had one just like it.” By 8:00 a.m. the next morning, nine bidders had raised the price to 550 dollars. After two days and 27 bids, the auction was still climbing past 2,200 dollars for an old plank of wood with a rope attached to it. Word spread quickly.

To see how a counterfeit vintage board was built, and almost sold on eBay for $21,700, read the Fool’s Gold story in our December issue, out now.

There’s a ton more in this issue, including Victor De Le Rue’s feature interview, which comes on the heels of landing the closing part to TransWorld‘s latest film Origins.

In the Patrons Of Powder feature, Terje Haakonsen and DCP accept an invite to ride in Kamchatka with some Russian billionaires and writer Scott Yorko tags along to explore the world of wealthy, elite heli trips.

Peace Park returned to Grand Targhee for another season last spring, and our managing editor Gerhard Gross, covered the latest edition of Danny Davis’s event. The Critical Mass feature shows why Peace Park has become an incubator that fuels progression in contest courses and public parks alike.

A few pro riders put pen to paper for us this issue too. First, there’s the Mediocre Madness story by Austin Smith about a dirt-cheap, road trip for the rest of us. Then Pat Moore reports on some of the history of big mountain riding in Valdez, Alaska for the Decades Of Aggression feature, where he drops in with Bryan Iguchi and Jamie Lynn during their first trip back in 20 years.

The issue wraps up with history of a few pivotal events that laid the foundation for Whistler’s freestyle scene in the Origins: Whistler feature.
