Andy - Mann

Andy Mann is a sponsored snowboarder competing on the Freeride World Tour Qualifier circuit. When Andy looks at the slope, he likes to have a mix of features to pow slashes.

He'll be teaching is having the ability to look at the slope and within seconds pick your line and how to commit to it. He'll also work on having the right stance, what to think about, and how to set yourself up so you have the best chance at a successful outcome with your line.

Takumi - Tosaki

Takumi Tosaki views his snowboarding as drawing his line on a white canvas. For years, he chased new terrain all over Japan, and since 2016 he's been chasing it in Nelson. The theme is still the same: he's honing his snowboarding and backcountry skills every day in preparation for the next new canvas.

From hiking to riding, all tracks have to be beautiful, and they're even better when distinctive, unique, and a little surprising.
