Travis Rice has developed into the best all-around snowboarder in the world, equally capable of showing up to win a Slopestyle event in Aspen as he is in pioneering a first descent in the remote Darwin Range on the tip of South America. He brings together qualities such as big-mountain tenacity, acrobatics and snow and mountain sense, often in a single descent. In 2011, he co-produced and starred in the film The Art of Flight in which he took his staggering aerial tricks usually reserved for the relative safety of the terrain parks out into the mountains.
