The Drink Water duo of Bryan Fox and Austin Smith alongside photographer Bob Plumb and videographer Jake Price, both legends in their own right, travelled to the deepest ranges of India, Nepal, and Kashmir in search of snowboard adventure. We’re talking very high altitude, killer avalanches, and non-Western traditions. They even ended up at the Annapurna base camp. One of the highest, most deadly mountains in the world. If you’re bored of lapping the same ol’ blue park every day at your local resort this is one to watch to get you inspired. Sure you may get skunked, but there is nothing like some road trip adventure with your mates.

Sample:

We imagined basecamp to be a mirage of tents with weathered, bearded men looking like soldiers pacing around in expedition suits endlessly jabbering about who was going to make the next summit push and who was on their way down. Then there would be us stepping out of a helicopter in street clothes and snowboards under our arms. But in reality, we didn’t see any tents. There are four lodges at ABC with rooms starting at $1.80 per night, but they get you for $2.00 for the Snickers bar in the restaurant. ABC is at the bottom of an amphitheater surrounded by giants. The elevation is 13,549 feet but directly in front and all around you are peaks over 23,000 feet. They are by far the most remarkable mountains I have ever seen. The routes that people climb up were pointed out to us but none of them looked humanly possible.
