Snowboarding and photography have always gone hand in hand. Gorgeous images give us something to aspire to, whether it’s a line on an untouched Alaskan pitch, or a perfect method off a park cheese wedge. We may not all be riding in the X Games halfpipe or have access to Utah’s powder bounty, but with photos we can live vicariously through the endeavors of others. Enter Instagram. Now images of riding are accessible at our fingertips, whether we’re waiting in a chairlift line or the bank queue. And not only that, Instagram has made it easier to see leaks from the current season, to follow your favorite pros, and to share your own best days on hill with your friends and followers. Here at SNOWBOARDER Mag, we have embraced this handheld, shared photo gallery and are excited that we have just reached 200,000 fans. 200,000 people who are taking in images of snowboarding shot by our favorite photographers. In honor of this momentous social media occasion, we compiled some of our most popular photos for this Best of Instagram — 200k Edition gallery.
Of course, follow @snowboardermag on Instagram for your daily snowboarding fix.
