Held under a sunny evening sky in the eastern Sierra at Mammoth Mountain, Giro recently held the first-ever Poacher’s Pipe Afterhours Session, where local riders were invited to come ‘poach’ Giro’s exclusive pro-team photoshoot setup and showcase their skills alongside some of snowboarding’s best riders, while documenting the session with top level photographers and videographers, see full edit above.
To celebrate one of the most epic Californian winters of all time and the Poacher’s Pipe proved to be a great season finale of the highest measure. It didn’t matter if you were a pro, a bro or a brah – the stoke level was high and everyone sent it into the alpen glow of the evening. With riders going off and Sebbe De Buck and Gabe Ferguson upping the ante – the session ended on a high note with Sebbe’s rodeo 7 up-and-over the entire hip – it was a moment to remember for all.
