Elias & Friends (elias-friends.com) is the ongoing video project of German snowboarder Elias Elhardt and, well, his friends. In his latest webisode, aptly called "Natural Riding : No friends on a powder day", Elias enjoys the pleasures of some uninhibited backcountry riding. Here's Elias talking about this episode:

"I really like all the different directions in freestyle Snowboarding, but there's one I love even more than anything else... Riding Natural terrain. Being out there in the Backcountry, thinking of your own line, take off and landing. It's all just imagination up until you finally try it and draw your line into the untouched field. This gives me the best feeling ever! For that reason I wanted to show you this little clip of natural hits that I did last year. Enjoy ;-)"
