The Hillside Project is one of the coolest thing happening when it comes to ride driven advancements in snowboarding. Louif Paradis and Harrison Gordon payed a visit to Wolle's prototype lab in the winter. It's very cool to discover the place and working process of Wolle through their eyes. The crew got to test some boards but also gave some input that led to a new Hillside shape! This short movie truly shows a rider driven process in the making...

The Hillside Project:
“With decades of powder riding and a profound expertise in shaping boards, Wolle Nyvelt has developed a refined process for creating prototypes, utilizing rider feedback and focusing on craftsmanship using the finest materials. The Hillside Project Series is a continuous pursuit in the development of authentic powder shapes, designed to reflect diversity in terrain, snow, and riding style. This is our vision of powder riding.” Salomon Snowboards
“Getting to shape a board with him and Lou was an unforgettable experience. To see a master like Wolle working his craft added a whole new perspective to the boards underneath our feet.” – Harrison Gordon
“Following Wolle around his zones is like having a magician show you the secrets to all of their tricks. With an enviable amount of experience and otherworldly skill, Wolle is easily one the best riders in the world. Not to mention his never-ending desire to find new terrain and land dope tricks. He is an unstoppable force. With Wolle at the helm of creating prototypes and new shapes for the Hillside Project, we are in the best hands possible.” – Harrison Gordon
