When you base yourself out of New Zealand, where the seasons are opposite to Europe and America, you're gonna have some of the best snowboard training you can get - while everyone else is soaking up the sun, you're hitting the slopes and throwing yourself down chutes to train for the Freeride World Tour baby! Meet Colin Boyd, snowboarder extraordinaire, and check out his home base in Wanaka, New Zealand. He has been living in NZ on and off since 2006 and calls it a 'playground for big kids'. Colin will take us on a tour of his backyard snowboard spots including Treble Cone and Cardrona and he'll share with us what a NZ Freeride Story is all about, which is of course training for the Freeride World Tour. And Colin's adventures this Winter. Music: Civilian Sol 1st track- Key To My Happiness 2nd track- Funky Glitch 3rd track- What I Feel Training in Treble Cone Backcountry & Cardrona w/ Colin Boyd | A New Zealand Freeride Story, Ep. 1
