Yeah, after watching this video I finally understand the mystique of powder. Definitely something I have yet to experience and looking forward to.

I have to admit snowboarding is still pretty cool even on packed snow (not ice though).

I've seen another history of boarding that was really cool too, but this one had some great footage. Some real awesome stuff from the early days! It's amazing to see how much things have gone from fun little 5 foot airs to massive amplitude out of the pipe, off kickers, etc.

Any recollection as to what it was called?

Powder and Rails series is quite interesting also: Powder and Rails | VICE

Let It Ride is also interesting (whole movie about Craig Kelly, narrated by James Hetfield!)

great video! check out 25:45 in the video and there's a guy wearing a funny helmet. I thought he was wearing one of those hats which hold beers on the side which you can drink from but it looks like that was actually a camera. and I thought gopro cameras on helmets looked funny
