Monster Energy is proud to announce the worldwide premiere of the new all-female ‘Snowcats’ video, starring some of the world’s best snowboard athletes. Released to global audiences today across Monster Energy’s social media channels, the seven-minute edit showcases boundary-pushing tricks by team riders Jamie Anderson, Chloe Kim, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, Kokomo Murase, Jill Perkins, and Annika Morgan on a special course at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort in Twin Bridges, California.
The high-energy edit was filmed on a special obstacle course created by acclaimed terrain park designer Charles Beckinsale. Course highlights include a long kicker gap for big airs, various technical handrails, as well as a massive quarter pipe/wave obstacle connected to an upward rail. Paired with some of the most creative freestyle snowboarders on the planet in a free-flowing expression session, it’s the perfect backdrop for a memorable snowboard video.
Expect never-been-done technical tricks and transfers, especially on the rail-to-quarter pipe obstacle. Also look forward to the kind of stylish aerials that riders rarely showcase in the ‘spin to win’ world of competitions, including unique switch variations from Rookie of the Year Sadowski-Synnott. Also, watch 19-time X Games medalist Anderson float down the track in signature effortless style while throwing down heavy rail tricks and contorted airs.
See Japanese snowboard wunderkind Murase unveil brand-new aerials, while upcoming German ripper Morgan sends it big over the gap and takes precise switch moves to the next level. Speaking of ‘next level’, see decorated street snowboarder Perkins land handrail tricks in a league of her own, while throwing in classic handplants and stylish rodeo flips for good measure. And for a special treat, get ready to see Olympic gold medalist Kim outside of her natural Superpipe terrain, putting down slopestyle airs and working the rails with technical tricks.
‘Snowcats’ is set to the tunes of ‘Had Ten Dollaz’ and ‘Grilled Cheese’ by indie rockers Cherry Glazer and packs tremendous re-watch value. Especially since the action was captured on video by pro snowboard filmers Marcus Skin, Jeremy Thornberg, and Spencer Whiting aka Gimbal God. The video shoot was also documented in still photography by Josh Bishop and Dasha Nosova.
