Think you need a chairlift to get to the pow?

Patagonia Snowboard Ambassador Sten Smola has been riding in the Alps for 15 years, using public transportation and his own two feet to find the fresh.  He’s a member of Ride Greener – an organization of boarders dedicated to promoting climate friendly snowboarding and skiing and environmentally conscious conduct in the mountains.  They put together this video to show how great turns are possible without high impact on the environment.  Green snowboarding – it’s a thing.
