It’s a tough old life for professional snowboarders. Travelling to far-flung locations on an endless quest for powder and adventure – sounds terrible doesn’t it?
All jealousy aside, episode 2 of the new season of Cooking With Gas sees Eero, Heikki and Lauri head out to Saas Fee, Switzerland, where they hook up with local, and legend in his own right, Frederik Kalbermatten – a guy that knows Saas Fee and the ways around its deadly crevasses like the back of his hand.
After a successful first day building and hitting kickers, the guys run into a spot of bad weather, forcing them to retreat into the woods for some pow slashing. The following day, the sun broke through the clouds again and it was all cylinders go, with riders filming second angle for each other in between sending it on the jumps themselves.
By the end of the trip, all three dudes managed to log some hammers and overall it was a resounding success, partly because of the riding that went down and also because of the close relationship that these three have – it’s always better riding with friends!
