From strapping in and throwing down to running music festivals, Jack Mitrani really does it all. Despite his Instavention this past year, this Vermont native has been producing plenty of magic moments at his home resort, Mammoth Mountain, as well as around the world. But wherever he goes, he’s always accompanied by his Frends. When Jack’s not strapped in on a board, he’s the man behind the camera in his Frendsvision edits or providing witty banter as a commentator for a plethora of event webcasts–often with guitar in tow for impromptu on air performances. Check out his most footage in Burton presents Resort [Snowboarding], and as spring ramps up and summer shredding begins, Jack tells us his most inspirational tracks to jam to while on snow. Enjoy his selections.
