Burton Snowboards: The Big Picture – A real-er look at Real Snow Backcountry

The Winter X Games Real Snow Backcountry contest was started last year as a way to expose the masses to a different aspect of snowboarding other than the traditional contest scene. Nicolas Müller, John Jackson, Jussi Oksanen and Mark Sollors were all chosen to submit video parts, and in the end Nicolas ended up with a gold medal and Jussi took home a bronze and the fan-favorite title. In this Big Picture, the guys talk about what it was like getting into the filming groove extra early to shoot their parts and how that momentum shaped the rest of their season.
