Covering 40-plus years of snowboard action and innovation in the Salt Lake Valley, this series takes viewers through decades of documentation and the endless progression that has come to define the Salt Lake scene. With interviews and insights from the sport’s most iconic riders and media makers as well as footage from every era, it is a retrospective of Salt Lake riding that celebrates the impact and enduring influence of snowboarding’s finest city.
Episode 3, The Proving Grounds, looks at the sustained growth of snowboarding in the Salt Lake Region in both the backcountry and urban concentrations. At the turn of the decade, massive jump builds like Pyramid and Chad’s Gap were on the rise and urban features were only getting larger and more dangerous.
