It sounds simple: after all, carving is one of the first skills that every snowboarder learns. Yet somehow, Burton Snowboards have made a video centered entirely around the art of carving—and it’s actually really good.
Of course, it helps that the snowboarders featured, Terje Haakonsen and Ben Ferguson, are two of the best riders in the mountains right now. We’re used to big mountains, big airs, and crazy tricks, so it’s actually refreshing to bring it back to basics: smooth, on-piste carving.
If you’ve ever been bummed out that conditions limit you to a groomer day, watch this video. It’ll remind you that exquisite carving can be just as awesome as a triple cork.
