Jake Blauvelt's Naturally Episode 2: Europe

10:34 6th December 2013 by Sam Oetiker

You’ve seen the full movie and the full parts, now tune in to this behind the scenes look at the filming of Jake Blauvelt’s powder-filled epic Naturally. In the second webisode, Jake  does what most snowboarders can relate to well: seek out the spots with the best snow and go ride them.

After the ISPO tradeshow in Munich, Jake hooks up with Fredi Kalbermatten and Eric Jackson and hit a remote region in the French Alps after a particularly heavy dump. The crew find a sick looking house to send it off and have a play on some more natural features.

After it begins warming up a little too much for the snow to stay light and fluffy, the crew head to the Saas Fee glacier – Fredi’s home resort – for a slightly precarious session navigating the many hidden crevasses up there. They log a few shots but are again plagued by warmer than average temperatures and the increasing dangers they bring when snowboarding on a glacier.

With that, the crew decide to head north to Riksgransen, Norway for a monster hip session. Thanks to the help of Swiss Precision Fredi K, a perfect hip is carved out of the landscape and the dudes proceed to send it with methods corked spins and a super sick double cork from Jake.

Check out the episode now, and stay tuned for part 3 dropping next week. Don’t forget that you can also pick up a digital copy of the full Naturally movie right here on the iTunes store.
