Rome Snowboards present the second part of their epic web series that set out to ‘Find Snowboarding’ in the most unexpected of places. For part two, the crew head deep into the remote Aleutian Islands of Alaska.
Alaska has definitely had its fair share of snowboarding visitors over the years, but few, if any have ventured into the remote Aleutian Islands.
That was the mission of Cody Booth, Thomas Delfino and Aspen Rain Weaver, who trekked, ATV’d and hiked on active volcanoes, camped out in travelers huts, and spent many pain-staking days for the weather to ease off so they could attack some big lines in one of the most breathtaking locations in the world.
The harsh weather conditions, threat from grizzly bears and rough living made the trip the most grueling of the series yet, but once the stars aligned all of the hardship paid off.
There are few people in the world who can say that they’ve snowboarded somewhere that nobody else in the world has and these guys made it happen.

Armed with a map and pending weather forecast a decision was made to head west…as far west as possible.
The Aleutians were formed by volcanic reaction and to this day still host large active volcanoes; many with lines, couloirs and untouched possibilities. – An adventure to unbelievable to pass up for Thomas Delfino and Aspen Rain Weaver, who headed north to meet Cody in the wild frontier.
Weather, grizzly bears, and a lack of amenities made this into one of the grittiest missions to date. The little town welcomed these unusual visitors but the surrounding terrain made no concessions, forcing the crew to get creative as they searched for first descents and fresh lines.
