Rome Snowboards presents Find Snowboarding: Kazakhstan

Where there is snow and a slope, snowboarding can be done. Rome Snowboards set out to push that statement to the far reaches of the globe and show that it is not always about where you are snowboarding; the people, experience and journey is equally, if not more important. In the first episode of its three-part web series, the Rome crew of Laurent-Nicolas Paquin, Ian Boll and Ozzy Henning find themselves in one of snowboarding’s unlikely places: the Middle Eastern country of Kazakhstan.

After countless pitches, explanations and justifications to the Kazakh consulate about how three snowboarders were looking to ride in their streets and not the nearby Himalayas, they finally agreed to let this motley crew in.

The result was something far beyond our expectations—a rail mission that became an adventure. The crew bartered with locals for a van named “Rick”, continually bribed off corrupt officials, visited the Kazakh healthcare system and fought off bums or stray cows while trying to hit rails. Through it all, they opened the door to a multitude of snowboarding possibilities.

On the loose in unknown territory, LNP, Ozzy and Ian took to the streets of Almaty with the hopes of discovering new rails and features. What they found was much more than that.

Find Snowboarding: KAZAKHSTAN, is the first of three full films from Rome Snowboards coming this season.
