Vans Kicks Off LANDLINE. Global Premiere Tour In Europe

Vans kicked off it’s global premiere tour for their first full-length snowboarding film LANDLINE. in Europe this past weekend. The whole team got together in Austria to ride Innsbruck local’s resort Axamer Lizum, before heading to town for the first viewing of the movie at local cinema Leo Kino.

The highly anticipated movie has been in the works for two years. Shot on 16mm film, it feels like a conclusion to the trilogy of Propeller (skate) and Illustrated (BMX). It has been on a tight, no-leaks lock down, to the point that none of the riders had seen the movie before the big night. Vans opted for a mid-season release combined with a global tour, so they could share the movie and its hype with winter in full swing. As a bonus, Austria just had the best start to its season in a generation, so local stoke levels were running high.

No spoilers here, the movie is essential viewing and best enjoyed on a large screen, so check the global tour stops below. It releases on iTunes on January 26th.

A Penchant for Powder with Mary Rand

Mary Rand has always been a force to be reckoned with. Hailing from the East Coast and learning to ride at Loon Mountain, New Hampshire and the now famous Yawgoo Valley, Rhode Island, Mary has landed on the short list of top female riders for the past few seasons now. Trading in corduroy for the Cascades, the 2014 Rookie of the Year as well as TransWorld Reader’s Choice award in 2015, headed west two seasons ago and found a new home at Stevens Pass. Sparking a penchant for powder in the Pacific Northwest only drove her further to hone her craft in the backcountry this past season, with and without bindings we might add. Take a look at Mary’s last season spent with 686 and Vans at her adopted home mountain, and then check out her interview here for a more in-depth look at what to expect from her this upcoming season!
