Forest is back, baby! After suffering a knee injury last season and having surgery, Forest is back on hill and looks like he built up some upper body strenght! Filmed by Ian Post, 686’s Forest Bailey and Riley Nickerson use Bear Mountain to it’s fullest potential in some early season follow cam antics. Consisting of hand stands, carving tranny, and laying down smooth lines, what else would you expect from two of the most innovative riders in snowboarding?

Bear has been a mecca of snowboarding for quite some time now, and it is things like this edit that will keep it’s place in snowboarding’s history for a long time to come. Check back on SNOWBOARDER for more from 686 and Bear Mountain throughout the season!
