Powder Report

Day for day, year after year, February is still the heavyweight champion of pow-tastic months around the Northern Hemi. While Feb 2015 did not set many, if any, snow records, no doubt the pow hunter’s sweetheart month delivered enough good lovin’ to maintain the title for another year…

Kicking off the report, check out this slash from the Teton backcountry by Jeremy Jones (@JeremyJones). The Tetons went off in Feb as the avy danger was unusually low.. You could ride steep lines in good pow that are usually unsafe. Photo - Allison Lightcap (@allisonlightcap)

Jumping across the pond, the Film For Food crew (@filmforfood) was doin’ their thing in Saas Fee, Switzerland. Here’s Wyatt Stasinos, Cory Stasinos (@coco-stasi) and Alessandro Boyens (@aleboyens) crushing a party run. Photo - @brown_anthony

You can bet Sten Smola (@sten_smola) was out and about in the Swiss Alps as well. Here’s a shot from one of his splitboard missions in the Valais.

Over in Austria, Bibi Tolderer-Pekarek (@bibitp) was ripping pow laps at Nordkette above her house in Innsbruck. Photo - Seth Lightcap (@sethlightcap).

No surprise where Luca Pandolfi (@pandolf73) scored epic Feb pow… under the cables on the Hellbroner, Italy

Congrats to Miikka Hast (@miikkaphoto) who became a father in February! He was understandably chilling at home in Finland with his wife and new daughter for the month but he still found some backyard pow turns on the Jones Mountain Surfer.

Ryland Bell (@rylandbell) stayed in Japan for the month of February. He found plenty of faceshots including a few mid-method, or as they call the trick in Japan, mid-old fashioned.

Whistler and the Coast range of BC are not having a great season. You know what that means? If you want fresh tracks you better be willing to earn them. Yuta Watanabe (@utawatanabe) is definitely willing.

Might look like pow turns but really these are one of the sweetest varietals of corn turns known to man… Taylor Carlton (@taylorc27) and crew tagged up Mount Shasta in the California Cascades.

No pow, no problem for Taylor Carlton (@taylorc27). He loves spring hucking on natural features like this Mount Shasta wind lip.

A couple solid storms hit the High Sierra and Mammoth Mountain in California. Jimmy Goodman (@goddmannnnnn) detonated every flake he could get his edges over. Photo - John Truax (@rapidorojo)

Forrest Shearer (@forrestshearer) found a tasty left-hander to surf in the Wasatch.

Did you see the latest addition to the Jones quiver yet?! We debuted the 2016 Storm Chaser at the SIA and ISPO tradeshows in February. This new pow-seeking missle is a collabo design with surf board shaper Chris Christenson (@chris_christenson73). Look out for the Storm Chaser at your local dealer next fall!
