Ouija imagine hitting the slopes of New Hampshire’s beautiful snow-capped mountains in the early days of spring: The sun is shining, and the snow is soft and slushy. As you carve down the mountain, you notice some strange movement out of the corner of your eye. Suddenly, you see a group of ghostly figures snowboarding alongside you.
In the spooky woods of Waterville Valley, these ghosts seem to be having the time of their afterlife, gliding effortlessly through the air and carving up Snowboy Productions’ creations with expert precision. They appear to be the spirits of Rome(an) warriors, clinging to their love of the sport.
Joining pursuit, you can almost hear their spectral laughter as they weave in and out of the trees and perform amazing stunts. Despite their ghostly nature, they seem friendly and welcoming, inviting you to accompany this otherworldly snowboarding adventure.
As you ride with these ghostly snowboarders, you can’t help but feel a sense of wonder and excitement. The experience is like nothing you’ve ever felt before, a magical blend of adrenaline, fun, and the supernatural. Mediums Nate Haust, Madison Blackley, and Frank Jobin cast spells over anyone who dares to gaze upon their magic on the board, as they communicate with the shred spirits.
Eventually, as the sun sets over the mountains, the ghostly snowboarders begin to fade away, disappearing back into the spirit world from which they came. But the memory of their incredible springtime snowboarding adventure will stay with us for the rest of our days…
