We can all agree that what went down during Ethan Morgan's DIYX event in Innsbruck a couple weeks ago can easily be put in the "COMPLETELY MENTAL" section of the Snowboard Culture segment of our brains. A section that we cherish by the way. Anyhow, with Ted Borland's truly poetic edit "How's the air up there?", our collegues at Slush Magazine somehow managed to transcript the beauty of it we could all see but couldn't really put into words. Good job! Ha
This is their impression on the matter: "Ahhhh, Austria. One might normally associate the alps with beautiful views, crisp mountain air, and fresh spring water coming from the massive glaciers. Or, for this time of year, you might see footage from national teams training on the pristine snowboard parks that lie just a few gondola rides away from the little city of Innsbruck. Well, the Air Up There was quite different on the week that we ventured out. Take a look as we explore the first few days of the season for MoonPark, the DIY setup that's local to most of Europe's top jibbers - this would end up as the calm before the storm. With a bleak opening season, that "Storm" did not come in the form of actual weather. It was the brainchild event of Ethan Morgan called "DiyX Street Jam". As far as that went, well, we aren't quite sure how to describe it in words, so you'll have to watch and see the carnage for yourself. "
