Swiss rider Sten Smola is the brains and brawn behind RIDE GREENER, the sustainably shred organization that produced the backcountry snowboarding film STEPS. Sten just released a new video entitled ’3456 Feet’. Catch the lowdown from Sten about the video just below:

To fight one’s way hundreds of meters up a mountain for hours long only to ride down for a few seconds—that might just sound crazy to some people. For a snowboarder, it can be a way to take a first step against today’s environmental crisis. Between the desire to achieve something and the actual accomplishment lies the pathway to get there. It may be short or long. For a snowboarder, this journey can mean 3456 feet. An apparently insignificant altitude difference, which is not realized in lightning speed by some resource-intensive machine. An altitude difference that must be surmounted with one’s own strength. This is done quite consciously, to descend the mountain only one time. To summit only one time, and thereby feel and respect nature’s rhythm.
