It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 5 years since we INTERVIEWED local pro snowboarder Leanne Pelosi! To make up for all that lost time we’re very happy to share with you a 5 part webseries of hers called Vision Airs. Most of it was filmed on her home turf on the Sea to Sky highway backcountry and it’s all about Leanne riding with snowboarders who have a capability to see beyond their current reality. These ‘vision airs’ exude creativity and style. Inspired through infectious energy, if you’re looking for winter inspiration, look no further!
Leanne Pelosi has long been a person that has expanded the definition of “women’s snowboarding”, expounding on what this phrase means in the dialect of current context both in the streets and in the mountains. This past season, Leanne stacked footage across the globe with fellow boarders that contribute to shaping the way that riding is regarded. In her new series, Vision Airs, Leanne shares this footage and in the first episode, takes on pillows in BC with Marie-France Roy.
In the second episode of Vision Airs, Leanne Pelosi trades in powder for rails and heads across the Atlantic to Sweden on a rail mission with the chicks of Too Hard. Danyale Patterson, Corinne Pasela, Madison Blackley, Alexa McCarty and Holland-based rider Rachida Aoulad traveled near the Arctic Circle to find Swedish snow and stacked shots amidst the brick red houses of Scandinavia. Back province-side, Leanne met up with Dwayne Wiebe and the dedicated Calgary crew in Alberta. Seamlessly jumping between crews, Leanne melds with the creativity, versatility and solid snowboarding that tie the two different groups together.
