It's that time of the year when the runs are slushy and the park laps plentiful. In fact spring shredding can start to resemble a laid-back summer skate sesh. Here we have Californian jib rat Zak Hale and the world's most famous four-eyed snowboarder, Ethan Deiss, enjoying a sunny 'vacation' in Vail. See, they've finally admitted it - this is not work at all!

Props for the relaxed Brazilian sounds courtesy of Romulo Fro├ęs - including the best use of a snowboard as a percussion instrument we've ever seen on 1.10.

Roll on World Cup 2014.
