Is there any feeling quite like scouting your line as you’re waiting to drop into a powder bowl? Looking for the grooves and crevasses to avoid, seeing which pillow you might be able to drop and eyeing up where you’re gonna rip a massive slash. Imagine doing it blindfolded. Mother Nature can be a wanton mistress when she chooses to be, so what better way to tempt fate than to strap on and shred in the dark? This 6 person team decided to head to Tromsø to do exactly that.
Tromsø is nestled in the Northern tip of Norway and during the winter months it plays host to a phenomenon known as ‘Polar Night’- a period where the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon at all. The whole region is shrouded in darkness with very little discernible difference between day and night. The team wanted to create a movie to convey the beauty and purity of snowboarding, and the vital role it plays in helping them get through the long dark months.
