Check out Mikey Rencz's entry for the 2014 X Games Real Snow Backcountry contest. Dude sends it so deep!

With Jussi Oksanen out of the game in his retirement from professional snowboarding, it leaves us wondering who his Burton backcountry buddy Mikey Rencz will be going on sled missions in the Whistler backcountry with instead.

Speculation aside, Mikey's Real Snow Backcountry full part is insane. By the looks of it, Mikey scored some insane conditions last winter and brought the level of tricks to match. Hit play above for some beastly hits on some serious stepdowns, a handful of pow slashes and all-round solid backcountry freestyle snowboarding.

With Andreas Wiig, Iikka Backstrom, Jussi Oksanen and Pat Moore all with heavy full parts, the competition is certainly looking pretty stiff right now.
