As a native of Jackson, Wyoming, where his father was on ski patrol, Travis Rice has snowboarding in his blood. Still, he was an unknown outsider when, at 18, he showed up to his first major competition — Snowboard magazine’s Superpark contest in Mammoth — and blew everyone away by launching a backside rodeo across a 117-foot gap jump. That jaw-dropping feat set the tone for Rice’s career, and today he is widely considered one of the most influential, talented and visionary snowboarders in the sport’s history. Rice's athleticism is superhuman — he rides the steepest of Alaskan spines with the same precision and grace with which he executes tricks off enormous backcountry jumps and sticks medal-winning lines in the X Games. But what set Rice in his own stratosphere is more than athleticism. He is also part of the creative force behind the boundary-shattering films That’s It, That’s All and The Art of Flight — which represent a new era of craftsmanship in snowboard documentaries. His accolades are too numerous to list, but include National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, TransWorld’s Rider of the Year, X Games gold medalist and inaugural Supernatural champion. We've shared just a taste of Rice's sweet style when Travis Rice Rides Epic Spine Line in Japan (Mountainfilm 2018). He is also featured in Lines to Hawaii (Mountainfilm 2018).
