“I got a chance to spend a few epic days with Iceland’s Halldor Helgason this past winter. His Nordic country’s similarities with Tahoe are probably few and far between, but he still seemed at home as a backcountry rookie. Halldor’s rail skills might make him a household name among snowboarders this year, however, his amazing style and fearlessness in the backcountry is what I am most excited to watch in the coming years.” – Nate Christensen
