ON THE COVER: After a heavy sponsor change a few months back, Gigi Rüf lands himself another SNOWBOARDER cover with this (pardon the pun) fresh-ass stalefish in a craggy New Zealand zone.
“Last day. Gigi levitating through the ice cracks like an elf through the forest. A primeval Volcom stone carved in ice. Harnesses, probes, ropes and ice axes. Uncertainty. Black holes, crevasses. Sketchy run in. Magical New Zealand at its finest. ”

ON THE COVER: Hans Jangaard knows where to go at Stevens Pass when the white starts piling up, and he capitalizes on a waist-deep Washington day, landing himself his first cover with SNOWBOARDER.
“This day consisted of epic spring conditions rare to the NW. A few locs and I had been shredding Seventh Heaven and Cowboy Ridge all morning until the March sun grew high in the sky, turning all the pristine pow into heavy sludge. At this point, we headed to a secret zone which patiently waits in the shade all day. Upon arrival, I remembered this half-buried stump jump my buddy and I had hit before. I called “drop!”, and this was the outcome and the end to a perfect day at Steven’s Pass.”

ON THE COVER:They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, here’s 96 words from our cover boy Shaun McKay:
“This shot was taken on my first Whistler trip of the year. I was there trying to bag some shots for the MDPeople movie. Towards the end of our day, we came across this ridge that had good light on it and I decided to ride a line and check the snow. Geoff mentioned the ridge was great for photos and Pat McCarthy, Louie Fountain and I spent a couple of more hours riding different lines while Geoff crawled all over the place trying to ‘get the shot’ of all three of us hitting different things.”
Worked out well, didn’t it, Shaun?

ON THE COVER: LNP is a French-Canadian jibbing juggernaut, and since his first appearance in this magazine a few years back, he has been setting the standard for pro riders who make their living hustlin’ in the streets. This cover is proof of his skill, but if you want more, check out Rome’s No Correct Way, coming this fall.

ON THE COVER:

“It had been stormy most of the day and the crew decided to go in for lunch when the sun suddenly broke. I was looking out the windows of the lodge and watching the peaks light up. I wolfed down my lunch and bolted out the door before the other guys had even gotten out of the lunch line. I had radio contact with Zac (who had skipped lunch), and we managed to hook up just as they began to session this jump. Zac was doing some of the sickest methods I have [ever] seen. Just [as] he was about done, I asked him if he would hit it one more time, as I had found this cool angle which put him over the peak of Mt. Shuskan. He gladly hiked it one more time and we got this shot. Thanks Zac!!”

“I admire Ken’s skills. I never even thought something like that could be done with a car. Right after we both landed, it felt so surreal, like, “What just happened?” I just couldn’t stop laughing; it was so amazing. Jumping next to him was both fun and scary—a crazy thing to do, when I think about it. But I’m stoked I did.”
SUPERPARK 11: The Proving Grounds by Liam Gallagher
"As a spectator, it was wild enough watching the hell-man of a heli-pilot navigate between lift towers and trees, keeping the craft no more than twenty feet off the deck of the jumps, and I can't imagine wht it must've taken for the riders to stay composed. But they never faltered."
