If you look at the snowboarding movie as a creative endeavour then you start to realise the massive scope of these diverse projects. The films listed here are more than just a camera pointed at a snowboarder with the proviso “do something good”. They are glorious cinematographic journeys of courage, skill, passion and snowboarding.
Across the globe, epic locations provide once in a life time lines. Huge rosters of transcendent riders fly down slopes, hand rails and through the air. All filmed by an army of cameras, helicopters and drones.
