The time has come – MTV came to snowboarding. You can peep the teaser for the new TV series focused on the life of McMorris brothers.
MTV teamed up with Red Bull and together they produced eight half-hour episodes of ’McMorris & McMorris‘, which follows Mark McMorris and Craig McMorris from Regina, Saskatchewan, as they compete, travel or spend their downtime partying with celebrities.
Mark and Craig need no introduction to most snowboarders but for those of you living in the woods over the past years they have become a pretty big deal in the snowboarding world. Mark has been pretty much dominating the competitive Big Air and Slopestyle circuits winning X Games gold medals with a full bag of insane tricks including triple-corks – especially important with Big Air’s inclusion in the Olympics in Sochi next year. Craig, while lesser known on the world stage, is an equally good shredder with skills that stretch between the backcountry and the contest scene alike. Put those two chaps together and you get arguably the most powerful brother-brother team of riders to ever come out of Canada. The fact that they are from a small town in Saskatchewan with no slopes to speak of and that they’re both super rad dudes is just icing on the cake.
We are all pretty curious about this snowboarding reality show experiment. Let’s all just hope that the show does snowboarding the justice that it deserves and will also feature some actual snowboarding.
Tune into MTV Canada for the premier episode airing on November 1st at 9pm EST or 6pm PST.
