Marie-France Roy plans the ultimate winter camping/ splitboarding adventure for her and a crew of talented ladies that ends up not going as planned! Find out how they made it through the worst winter storm they had ever experienced while fully exposed to the elements with nothing but their tents and gear in Always Back Up the Backup Plan.
Several of snowboarding's heavy hitters (Leanne Pelosi, Hana Beaman, Annie Boulanger and Robin Van Gyn) find themselves together, mid-winter in the Kootenays. Perfect snow conditions call for an extended stay that allows the ladies to adventure into terrain unknown to them and only known to the regions legendary riders that came before them. This incredible opportunity results in an epic trip and a great deal of reflection on the state of snowboarding and the industry as a whole. This feature will most definitely have you praying for snow to fall and excited to get out on your board!
Helen Schettini: Only the Strong Survive
At this point in time the one thing that comes to mind when we think of Helen Schettini is, "this girl is blowing-up!" She is definitely on the rise and earning every single bit of it with her hard work and dedication to her craft. We catch-up with her at home to talk about her incredible video parts that have caught the attention of the international snowboard community and what it is like riding and filming with the legendary riders that make up the YES. snowboard team. With insights into her daily life and what drives her to keep progressing, meet Helen Schettini!
