Carter Country: Inside the life of rancher and pro snowboarder Mark Carter presented by Leatherman

Mark Carter doesn’t care about what’s cool, trending, or what it means to fit inside the conceived boundaries that define what a snowboarder should be—he just snowboards. He’s not the guy that’s looking for a hookup from his local rep or waiting for his “big break.” No, Mark is the working man’s snowboarder that earns his turns, both on and off the snow. Take a look inside snowboarding’s cowboy at his ranch outside of Jackson, Wyoming in Carter Country, an original short from the makers of the finest multitools around, Leatherman.

Carter Country in Leatherman’s words:

Carter Country is a unique story that follows a day in the life of professional snowboarder and part-time cowboy, Mark Carter. Ranching is no joke, seven hundred head of cattle need to be looked after and corralled for “the gathering” to keep up with the family business that is nestled deep in the backcountry of Wyoming.

Carter Country

With ranching in his blood and snowboarding in his heart, you can’t help but see the similarities between Mark’s double life. Dedication, discipline, and brotherhood are necessary qualities that are found on ranch and snow. In this Leatherman original we get a glimpse into a life lived to the fullest while prepared for whatever life throws his way.
