Alaskan Holiday - A Story by Stolen Paradise

ISENSEVEN presents "Alaskan Holiday" - A Story by Stolen Paradise

"Tobi, Fips and me spent the last twelve months traveling around the world and one of many highlights was our roadtrip from Seattle to Alaska. In Alaska we spent three unforgettable weeks at Tailgate AK: camping on a glacier 20 miles away from the road, riding our first steep AK lines, seeing northern lights and just hanging out with friends. In the end we met up with Elias Elhardt and went Heliskiing in Haines. For me personally this was the last trip of my professional snowboard career and I couldn't ask for a better final. Alaskan Holiday. That's what it felt like."

"They sleep in cars and motor homes and tents, waiting for the mountains to stop holding onto the weather and for it to go blue. It might take days, weeks even, but when it pops, there’s nothing else in the world like it."

“Bringing together this group of people into a small parking lot, then adding helicopters, planes, and snowmobiles to access the mountains, makes it feel like controlled chaos,” said Ritchie of the Tailgate vibe. “The options to ride are seemingly endless, and it’s cool to see people come from all over the world to enjoy these mountains for a small few windows”
