Travis Rice is a guy born with a snowboard

Travis was born on October 9, 1982 in Wyoming. He grew up near the Jackson Hole Mountain ski resort, where his father worked as a rescue skier. Since childhood, Travis was drawn to skiing, but quickly fed up with them – the lesson seemed too simple. Still – after several days of training, he calmly rode along the most difficult routes of the resort.
Rice remembers how the idea of ​​snowboarding came up: “For the first time I saw snowboarders in Jackson Hole as a child. There were not many of them, but they soon built themselves several sites for tricks: halfpipe, quarter pipe and wall. I was probably about 6 years old then, but I remember that those sites seemed to me the coolest things in the entire resort.

WHAT IS Freeride …

Freeride. We are already used to this term, although no one is able to say what it is exactly, even the riders themselves. The word “freeride” is usually understood as free descent along an unfamiliar slope outside the laid tracks at the maximum possible speed under the given conditions. In a sense, this formulation is probably suitable. But this is only a miserable attempt to choose terminology, to drive into a narrow framework of the formula an absolutely immense concept, which includes philosophy, attitude to skiing, to oneself and perception of the Mountain … Perhaps the attitude to the Mountain is what distinguishes a rider from a beautifully skiing expert? That’s right, to the Mountain – with a capital letter, because all the people whom we call freeriders (they prefer to say something about themselves like “well, we know how to ski a bit”) have great respect for the Mountain. Otherwise, it’s simply impossible, Continue reading
