Watch what went down when the UK’s Route One snowboard team headed out to the Alps for 9 days cruising the pistes, parks and pow in some killer European resorts!
There are few things better in life than embarking on a road trip with your homies. And when that road trip involves hitting up some of the finest snowparks our fair continent has to offer, you can’t really go wrong.
The Route One team hail from the UK, where snowy mountains are few and far between. What better way to get stuck into some snowboarding than to jump in a motor home with your mates and hit the continent, one resort at a time.
Watch as Si Belson, Will Radula-Scott, Rowan Biddiscombe and Cody Hierons hit up Snowpark Gstaad and Schöneben Snowpark with some mellow lines through the parks and more than a few solid pow slashes – not bad for the middle of March!
With radio mics rigged up on the riders to give us live insights on how the guys felt when hitting these parks for the first time, we get a little more than just your standard park edit.
Stay tuned for part two dropping soon!
Episode 1 of the Route One: Parked Up In Europe trip sees the Route One Snowboard Team travel from the City of London, crammed in a motorhome, set for the European Alps to uncover some of Europe’s hidden snowparks.
First stop was Snowpark Gstaad, nestled away in the South West of Switzerland. Then on to the South Tyrol, just over the the Italian border to the Schöneben Snowpark that sat above Lake Resia.
They set off mid March for 9 days predicting sunny skies and spring conditions, perfect for lapping the parks….the reality was quite different, with one of the biggest snow storms of the European winter to kick off the trip meant for some sketchy mountain driving and more powder turns than rail lines.
Watch out for Episode 2 coming soon to see the team continue their journey through the Alps on to Austria to check out the Planai Superpark and Hochkonig’s King’s Park.
Featuring Si Belson, Will Radula-Scott, Rowan Biddiscombe and Cody Hierons.
