Shaun White Shredding Powder?

shaun white powderAs we all know, Shaun White is an X-Games superstar (with 12 medals under his belt) and is famous for his pipe and park riding abilities. Because of this, one may wonder what Shaun is doing spending all his time these days in B.C. and Japan ripping powder. Well maybe, not so much, as there’s really nothing that comes close to the sensation of shredding the pow. Would you not agree?

After the X-Games Shaun headed up to B.C. to get some time in hitting gnarly lines and shredding pillows. I guess he was just warming up for the trip he and the Red Bull crew were planning to Japan. Since landing in Tokyo on the 14th of February, Shaun and his crew have been by blessed by storm after storm, one dumping up to four feet in 24 hours. Wow! At times, they were getting so much snow that they were stuck inside the lodge and couldn’t even board.

Professional snowboarders like Shaun have a-hell-of-a job if you ask me, waiting for record snow falls to clear up so you can ride powder deep enough to sink the Titanic. Hiking, building, and hitting drops all are in a hard days work. While part of the crew has split up, Shaun and the rest are off to Tokyo to continue on with their trip, check out full stories and picture at Shaun White’s official website.
