Exhilarating highlights from a year of pro snowboarding

Heart-pounding snowboard footage set to the original version of "Major Tom"? Yes please!

Filmmakers Stephan Maurer, Aaron Schwartz and Thomas Stöckli describe the project:

Carve Oddity is a collection of favourite moments from the 16/17 season – including, but not limited to – riding deep powder in the forests of Japan, going on weekend mini-missions to find new zones at tiny Swiss resorts, slashing chunky slush in the halfpipe and wave-park up in LAAX, and finding surprisingly good powder in the Engadin valley super late in the season. Despite difficult snow conditions we managed to have a whole lot of fun doing what we enjoy most: simply snowboarding.

Here's more intense backcountry carving in Japan:
