Chris Rasman lands the cover of the November Issue

Hitting mailboxes this week will be Snowboard Magazine’s November issue (Volume 9.2) with none other than Chris Rasman snagging the cover.

The photo was taken by Geoff Andruik while on a shoot with Rasman in the backcountry of Whistler, BC – so we hit him up to see what he had to say about getting the shot.

“It was a typical Whistler day as the sun wasn’t really anywhere to be seen. The crew was building cheese wedges, and as I’m not fond of them I decided to hop on a sled and go scope another zone for something natural to shoot. A few minutes later I found myself in a new zone with the sun starting to peek through, hitting this glacier ice wall. I knew it would make for a great photo so I pined it back to the jump and yelled out, ‘who wants to get a sick photo?’ Rasman, who I’m pretty sure was sick of building cheese wedges as that was the only thing the crew could do because of the poor weather hollered back, ‘Hell yeah I do!’ He ended up getting a cool video shot and the new cover of Snowboard. Thanks Rasman and Snowboard Mag, stoked!”

Enjoy and pray for snow!
