What did you do in the past year? Bjorn Leines did this. Nothing like watching this dude slashing pure pow and tackling mad lines to make you wish rode more over the last 12 months. Now in his 18th year as a pro, Bjorn has quite rightly earned a reputation as a bit of a ledge in the backcountry and on the street. He was part of the original Forum 8 crew – and that in itself puts him up there among the snowboarding gods.
If you enjoy a good bit of cinematography like myself, then you’ll appreciate the way this part was shot with mish-mash of 35mm film clips, POV shots, time lapse and slo-mo atmospheric fillers.
Strapped for time? Cut to 1.40 and catch Bjorn stomp a massive urban gap, before flicking to 2.56 for one bad ass line.
