The first stop of the Natural Selection Tour at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort introduced viewers and the competing riders to a new, hybrid freestyle-freeriding event. This event was the brainchild of Travis Rice, one of the most influential snowboarders in the world. The course required riders to navigate down a steep face, through deep snow, while also executing freestyle tricks off massive jumps and natural features. The final day of the event, only just completed last week, is already considered legendary among snowboarders. Here, a selection of riders share their chosen gear for taking on this untamed terrain.
