Terje Haakonsen: First snowboard descent of Peak 7601

In celebration of the beginning of another ski/snowboarding season, I thought I’d show an awesome snowboarding video to get you primed and ready for the new season.

The video shows the first descent of Peak 7601 (near Valdez, Alaska) by Terje Haakonsen, a Norwegian snowboarder widely considered to be one of the most influential snowboarders of all time and one of the sport's early icons. This absolutely thrilling run was part of a film called First Descent, which also included Shaun White, Hannah Teter, Shawn Farmer and Nick Perata.

Many people have already seen the video, but hopefully this will inspire you…..to get out and conquer Cataloochee this weekend!
