Working on the night moves
Is this video FTW? Rank it.
Snowboarding at night is nothing new. Resorts have had lights set up for years. But night riding in the backcountry is something entirely different. On the new Every Third Thursday, Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew figure out how to keep riding British Columbia powder long after the sun sets thanks to custom snowboards with headlights.
Lee and his team mounted a variety of LED Lenser flashlights and lamps onto the boards at the Signal factory. Then Lee and pro rider Jake Olson-Elm took the snowboards to Baldface Lodge to test them out in epic deep powder conditions, all while everyone else at the backcountry destination was sleeping.
