Andreas Wiig Full Part | X Games Real Snow Backcountry 2014

Check out the first of the 2014 X Games Real Snow Backcountry parts, with Andreas Wiig coming at us in full beast mode! 

This year, X Games Real Snow has a new format, ditching the rider vs. rider tournament style format and panel of judges for a verdict decided by the 5 riders and filmmakers themselves. The winner of the contest will be announced during an in-depth, Mack-Dawg produced Real Snow behind the scenes “World of X Games” show, airing Sunday, Oct. 12 on ABC. New Real Snow parts will drop every other day in the lead up to the show.

First up is Norwegian powerhouse Andreas Wiig. A multiple X Games gold medallist in slopestyle, Wiig traded contests for backcountry 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.

This past season Andreas spent time in the backcountry shooting for the new Shredbots movie and his Real Snow part gives us a preview of some of the hammers that will feature in that.

With some massive tricks, including a backside triple cork 1440 in powder, only the second one we’ve ever seen stomped after fellow Norwegian Torstein Horgmo’s a couple years back, this is 60 seconds of Nordic backcountry annihilation.
