Stepping away from the Olympic scene and filming more backcountry nowadays, Sage Kotsenburg has a part coming up in the new movie, The Pepper Video.

In “Who is Pepper?”, Sage talks openly about how he developed his style growing up in Park City and his Olympic campaigns since 2002. He also goes into what mark he strived to leave on the Olympic platform and why he walked away.

With insight from his friends, the riders in Pepper, we also get a feel for what gets Sage stoked today.

The Pepper Video will feature a like-minded group of friends who all look at snowboarding differently, but share the same drive and desire to keep testing their limits on snow.

Snowboarder Magazine and Cole Taylor will be sitting with all the riders of the film, releasing a new Ep each week. Next week – Chris Grenier.
