If you didn’t have the pleasure of watching the final stop of the Natural Selection Tour live I highly recommend you watch the replay in its entirety  HERE. What was immediately striking about the event was the overwhelming remoteness of the venue where riders and support staff where had to be flown in on fixed wing beaver and otter aircraft to spend 4 days in an Everest style base camp leading up to competition day (complete with a bar thank god). Here’s a quick peek at the logistics that went into what will surely be remembered as a seminal event in history of big mountain freestyle snowboarding. Could not be more psyched for next year’s tour.

NATURAL SELECTION TOUR: A new generation of outdoor events and experiences designed to inspire a deeper connection to Mother Nature, where the world’s greatest snowboarders compete on our planet’s most challenging natural(ly enhanced) terrain.
