This winter, SNOWBOARDER Magazine set out to make their third consecutive film, and while our first, “Foreword” focused on snowboarding’s next generation of superstars and last winter’s release, “SFD” highlighted those riders whom we thought were down for life, our junior offering, “Resolution” showcases one of the most impressive and acclaimed rosters in recent memory. With “Resolution”, we wanted to make an entire film with footage worthy of enders and in high definition so as to give the riding in it the justice it deserves. Featuring Louif Paradis, Mikey Rencz, Mikkel Bang, Ben Ferguson, Scott Blum, Harrison Gordon, Chris Grenier, Lucas Magoon, Jake Blauvelt, Danny Davis, and Frank April, “Resolution” will be one of the ages. Now that you officially know who is in the film, check out the teaser for “Resolution” and click on to get to know the cast a little bit better before it drops this fall. – T. Bird

Ben Ferguson

Ben Ferguson

Ben Ferguson makes me want to ride like him when I strap in, and he’s the only rider in recent memory that I can say that about who isn’t older than me. He’s snowboarding’s next big superstar and without a doubt, one of the most impressive snowboarders alive. – T. Bird

Chris Grenier

Chris Grenier

Not only is he one of the funniest human beings to travel with, he’s also one of the best snowboarders I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting and riding with. He’ll make you laugh just as much as he makes your face melt with the features he hits and the tricks he does on them. Grenier is an all-time great and I’m stoked I got to spend so much time with him this winter. – T. Bird

Danny Davis

Danny Davis

Other than being one of the most stylish halfpipe riders in the game and the most hilarious person I know, Danny feels just as much at home when he's in the backcountry. In fact, I would say he's more at home when out in the woods in neck deep powder than anywhere else. I’m really excited for everyone to see what Danny put together out of bounds in between his hectic contest schedule. – Kyle Schwartz

Frank April

Frank April

One part cartoon character, one part The Incredible Hulk and many, many parts in some of the best snowboard videos to date, Frank April is both funny and fucking badass at the same time. Frank is one of my favorite riders to watch, regardless of whether he’s strapped in or not and what may get a tad lost in translation when conversing with him is made very very clear when he drops in. I love Frank, and I’m so glad we finally got a chance to work with him this winter. Here’s to many, many more, Grand Francois! Tabarnac! – T. Bird

Harrison Gordon

Harrison Gordon

Harry is one of the funniest people I know. His stoney demeanor and bobbling head seem to keep the crew constantly laughing. But, jokes aside, Harry can throw down on his snowboard. Some may label him as “just a rail rider,” but Harrison, to me, is an all terrain rider. Whether it’s park, pipe, powder, or boardin’ in the streets, Gordon can hold his own. – Mike Yoshida

Jake Blauvelt

Jake Blauvelt

I was very fortunate to have been crewed up with Jake most of the winter and was secretly fanning out when ever I was filming him shred. He has absolutely unmistakable style and ultimate edge control. I can pick him from a mile away in a crowd of carving snowboarders. I can't say that about many people I've filmed with. My favorite part about filming with Jake was when we were hot lapping at Mammoth. Jake is known for his backcountry prowess, but rest assured, he is an all terrain killer! – Kyle Schwartz

Louif Paradis

Louif Paradis

As the unofficial team captain of the unofficially named 'Quebecois Eight,' Louif Paradis’ snowboarding is as clear, concise and confident as his demeanor off the hill. As one of the most accomplished riders of our generation, I truly believe Lou is a first ballot Hall of Famer in our culture, and that’s simply gauging by what he’s done in the streets. Now that 'El Patron' has had a taste of what it’s like to tackle the hell-for-leather terrain in Alaska, I feel like he’s just beginning, even though he’s been so dominant in the last decade. – T. Bird

Lucas Magoon

Lucas Magoon

Lucas is one of my favorite dudes to shoot on or off the hill; I just never know what he is going to do next. He has this stark contrast between his tough appearance and silly sense of humor. One minute he’s ripping a cig looking thuggish, the next he is kindly letting me stay in his RV because I had no where else to go, and telling me how one of his pups likes their belly rubbed. - Huggy

Mikey Rencz

Mikey Rencz

Mikey’s status in the Canadian backcountry is nothing less than legendary. At a very young age he was inducted into the emerging Whistler scene and was mentored by the best in the business from day one. Fast-forward over a decade later and Mikey stands alone as one of the few from a generation that pioneered Whistler. His work ethic and ability to land almost anything is what has kept his longevity and slew of video parts rolling in. Mikey also possesses the leadership and kindness to help out the crew to work together as a team, as well as an endless wealth of knowledge when it comes to all the Whistler zones. – Mike Yoshida

Mikkel Bang

Mikkel Bang

Mikkel is on of the most fun loving and happy go lucky people I know. He’s almost always down to laugh about some ridiculous topic and doesn’t seem to take things too seriously. But when it comes to snowboarding, the switch is flipped and this guy is one hyper-focused and calculated rider that makes tall guy riding look good. BTW, he rides a 170. – Mike Yoshida

Scott Blum

Scott Blum

Blum is our anti-hero in a time when so much of a rider’s image is at stake. He’s not PR-coated and you can see that in his riding. It’s frayed, it’s mental and at times, pretty loose, but all of those traits come together to make it, well, simply perfect. Blum is one of my all-time favorite snowboarders to watch. – T. Bird
