Mike Basich launches new Area-241 app

Mike Basich has partnered with Black Sun Productions to  launch a new free iPhone,  iPad and iPod Touch app for Area-241 that allows users to experience the world of legendary big mountain snowboarder and Do-It-Yourself master Mike Basich at his Area-241 and on the road. With over 20 years of snowboarding experience under his belt Mike has taken every opportunity to explore and reinvent what it means to live "off the grid".  His passion has lead him on a journey of a lifetime.  This app brings you all the past and current Area-241 events, as well as photos, videos clips and stories of Mike’s Life.

"I am super stoked to see Area-241 come to life in a Mobile app” said Mike Basich, “I spend the majority of my screen time on my iPhone now-a-days and I am stoked to be able to showcase my latest projects and adventures as well as share my snowboard history and personal archives in this cool app."

The Area-241 app features a What’s New section that highlights videos and pictures of Mike’s recent trips and events; videos of his numerous D.I.Y projects; a gallery of Mike’s famous Self Portraits, access to 241 Product and in Mike’s Zones you can see videos and pictures of Mike’s favorite resort, backcountry, snowmobile and Heli locations.  The app also features video  of Mike’s famous 120 feet Heli Drop in Alaska and the full version of “Open Space – the Untold Stories of Mike Basich” the award winning documentary of his career.

"Our goal was to build an app for Area-241 that would reflect Mike’s unique artistic style and vision.  We additionally wanted to showcase his talent and the many contributions he has made to the snowboard community over the past 20 years" added Lisa Hudson, President of Black Sun Productions, "we hope you enjoy it"

The Area-241 app was developed by Black Sun Productions and will be updated regularly by Mike.  The app is available on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
