Volcom Women's Team Up @ Kitz

Last March our global women’s snow army teamed up, cleared up a short window in their season and decided to defy the natural elements and do a team shoot in only a few days. They’d clearly done something right in the past as stars aligned letting the full script play out with blue bird park days, snowflakes the size of tennis balls and waist deep pow after the season’s biggest dump, to wrap things up.

Cheryl making the Austrian landscape look even more amazing.

Sarka Pancochova, Cheryl Maas, Elena Hight, Christy Prior and some family riders hanging close by; neighboring Switzerland’s own Joel Juchli “JJ” and the French Anouck Grau all rallying to do some true riding. A team that’s known for keeping busy with contests, Dew Tour, X-Games, Opens, FIS qualifiers… Olympics.. suffering from the typical “so many places to go and so little time” syndrome, sometimes deserves a bit of slack. A proper team trip at our favorite resort Kitzsteinhorn, in the Austrian Alps. The perfect spot when wanting to tackle everything. This was long overdue. A great chance for new and old riders to kick back and relax after all the contest madness and to think about what snowboarding really means to them. Little did we know, they took the assignment to heart and put on a shocking bar tab, some sick riding, chicken dancing and smiles so unforgettable they convinced us to step up the game for our next team trip.

A lot was scheduled for these intense few days together, including a round table with our outerwear designer Carolyn, but the team hustled, fuelled by each other’s energies, and this edit is the proof. Think we got ourselves the itch for another pow trip…

So much snow in fact that we spent most of the day riding waist deep in it. Kari occasionally got barried.

Old tracks, new tracks.. it's all good fun when you for a brief moment get lost in a cloud of pow.

The end of our last day, looking back at all the sick lines. Until next time.

Big thanks to Active Hotel in Kaprun and all of Kitzsteinhorn with it’s more than “fine" snow park crew for treating us like royalty!

Volcom Snow's The Launch - Watch Now!
Last month our Volcom Snow ams, better known as the Stone Army crew, loaded up the RV and charged up to Bear Mountain for Snowboarder Magazine’s ninth annual The Launch 2016 presented by Volcom. The Launch is an assembly of age 21 and under riders handpicked by the Snowboarder Magazine crew for a 4 day media shred frenzy, and this year it was brought back to the San Bernadino mountains and constructed by the Bear Mountain crew full of endless rails, transition and kicker possibilities. Despite some windy, blizzard, and sometimes great conditions the boys were on fire with non-stop bell-to-bell action! When it was all said and done, Brock Crouch was awarded Standout and 10 yr old Aussie Valentino Guseli took home the Super Grom award for charging almost every feature in the park!

Austrian Rider Roli Tschoder stretches his back leg over the Kaunertal access road
  Here’s a short edit showing how amazing the conditions are up at Kaunertal Glacier right now, only 40 minutes from the Volcom Snow Team house. There’s hardly anyone around, aside from the like-minded, the park is in mint condition, you can ride from 3200 to 2000m and there’s even pow on offer. Way better conditions now  than in December/January.  Roli from Ischgl certainly has his priorities straight.. But unless you can ride like Roli, the we recommend you spare the stretching until you’re safely back on the ground again.  Now run to the hills… Pic and edit by Flo Achenrainer

Retrospection video by Olivier Gittler and Arthur Longo
If you plan on only seeing ONE snowboard video this year, then here you have it. Volcom lifer Olivier Gittler and his trusty collaborator Arthur Longo just put together a full length edit of all their Instagram short clips from the winter past.. In it you’ll see their unique take on snowboarding. And as you’ll watch you’ll slowly realise that “higher and further”’ isn’t always the goal. That it is just as much about the right turn at the right place at the right time. Or a backflip? And another backflip.. Backflips are never wrong. At times it might even look like the boys are bored with their day job (?!?) as they seem to be surfing more than snowboarding. But why not? Therein lies the beauty of this edit.. Get out off the park and look at what’s hidden behind it.  Or even IN it, as you follow our friends and their friends, finding park lines yet to be thought of.. Or making their own park outside of the park.. This is truly beautiful Olivier .. Please do even more of what you’re already doing.  Filmed on location in Les Des Alpes, Kitzsteinhorn, Chamonix, US Open, Arlberg and more Music: Leopard Ale IG: @leopard_ale

Volcom Stone Presents BARNEY - Watch Now!
Movie Description: A candid film collage celebrating the incomparable Shawn “Barney” Barron. Not only was Barney the innovative surfer whose acrobatic agility perfectly matched the superhero wetsuits he often wore, he was also an artist, comedian, son, brother, and true friend who lived and breathed laughs and creativity into everything he did. Despite the challenges of his bipolar disorder, he maintained an infectiously positive attitude, irrefutable love for life, and endless generosity that brightened the lives of all who knew him. His spirit reminds us that now is all we have… It reminds us to live now to the fullest. Shawn "Barney" Barron (photo: Tom Carey) Barney was known for his superhero-style wetsuits.
