Alberta Re-Birth

Alberta has some surprising shred history. Many consider it to be the birthplace of snowboarding in Canada. With Andrew Hardingham as our guide, we uncovered some old shred roots with the Billabong team. Eero Niemela, Romain De Marchi, Tadashi Fuse, Scot Brown and Chris Carr, along with Helen Schettini and Jamie Anderson ripped through Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and the defunct Fortress Mountain alongside KaPow catboarding.
