Side Hits Euphoria

French pro snowboarder Arthur Longo shows how to have the most fun with the least intense terrain

Sure heli skiing and big mountain riding is gnarly. We all know that. But it’s also entirely inaccessible for well over 99% of snow sport enthusiasts. What’s not out of reach though, are side hits. Side hits are the weird jumps and bumps and hips and banks carved into the sides of regular ski resort runs by creative riders around the world. And nothing's more fun than ripping laps on regular groomed runs, spying new natural jumps every few feet. French pro snowboarder Arthur Lango knows this well—in his new short film, Side Hits Euphoria, he demonstrates how to take the classic search for airtime to a whole other level.

SHE was filmed by Olivier Gittler throughout this past year, shot around the world at Montgenevre and Serre Chevalier in France, Sestriere in Italy, and Mt. Bachelor, Oregon. If this doesn’t get you hyped to ride your local resort, we don’t know what will.
