GoPro Snow: The Fourth Phase with Travis Rice – Ep. 1 ALASKA: Seek & Destroy


That was heavy.>>That was heavy.>>I was just hanging from the skid.>>There’s an overhanging. Let’s move down. Holy shit, dude. Let’s work. The things Trav was looking
at riding with him, I probably wouldn’t have looked at that. Nobody in the world rides like Trav.>>Four, three, two,
one, board is dropping. Woo. Here we are up top. You jack, it’s pretty fun
except our entrance has this massive freaking cones
with a separated slope and with just a huge corners fall,
I’m little intimidated but I’ll it quick, this is our line,
snow is going to be a full blower.>>That’s right. Holy shit. All right, I’m ready, you don’t even have
to ask, I’m ready to drop and we have, literally five minutes Dude nice backie. That was sick.>>Travis pushes the limits so hard, but when you look at decisions that he makes,
they’re very calculated.>>All right, give him a memory. Up this, over this, up over,
boom, boom, two big turns. Bunch of cool lines up here. Lower bench. Cut left. Boom, toe heel.
This gets a lot of sun and rocks in the landings, so-so. Drop in, traverse up to the ridgeline.>>That’s probably what I
respect most about him. He can ride it, and he will.>>Flying around the mountains of Alaska
>>Everything we look at up there. You’re riding it in your head. The crack we saw six years prior and
it’s something that, I’m sure I’m not the first one to
look at it and think about it. It’s just one of those things that was
kind of begging to be at least Looked at. All right guys.
Belay on. Thank you Ted.
Let’s go look down this bad chicken. Dude she is, she is a thing of beauty. Like barely rideable, but
she’s totally rideable. What do you think, EJ?>>I think we should ride it.>>So do I.>>Let me know when you’re ready.>>I’m ready. Hey, EJack, the only thing that I need
a heads up on is if you look up and for some reason you see some big
sluff ball coming towards me, coming behind me, just let me know. Other than that, should be good.>>Ready?>>Yeah I said I was ready. Jason I need a pick up right now. You can just come over to me. All right guys. Drop in. Pretty much ready. Land on the triangle. Let’s do this right now.>>And that right there is what
you do not wanna do at home. Instead of the 12 o’clock boys right now,
we’re the 6 o’clock, maybe 5:45. We found a creek bed and
now we gotta dig ourselves out.
