Two years in the making, "The Art of FLIGHT" gives iconic snowboarder Travis Rice and friends the opportunity to redefine what is possible in the mountains.

For the first time, viewers are immersed in the sometimes successful, often trying quest to open up new, unexplored mountains in remote corners of the world.
Join in the ride as the creators of "That's It, That's All" completely rewrite the formula for action sports cinema with "The Art of FLIGHT".
Travis Rice is often hailed by sportswriters and peers as the best all-around snowboarder in the world. Since earning 'Rookie of the Year' kudos in 2002, Travis has won numerous global slopestyle, big air and backcountry events, including two X Games gold medals. The Jackson, WY local has unveiled a slew of new tricks, including the first double backside rodeo 1080 in competition, while establishing new benchmarks in big-mountain audacity.
The 2005 and 2009 TransWorld and Snowboarder 'Rider of the Year' innovated a fresh contest format with his Quiksilver Natural Selection invitational. Rice recently launched Asymbol Gallery to give artists and photographers in the surf, skate and snow culture a platform to reach a wider audience. With "The Art of FLIGHT," Travis says they will "pull out all the stops with cutting-edge cinematography, a banger soundtrack, and an edit second to none." Possessing a personality as huge as his talent, "TRice" is always the rider to watch.

Nicolas Müller brings his tweaked out, spontaneous and completely unique style of riding to "The Art of FLIGHT." Müller's instantly recognizable on the screen and always fun to watch in his decade worth of standout video parts. He honed his chops near his home at Laax, Switzerland's first halfpipe. Müller soon looked beyond the walls to the vast, undiscovered possibilities waiting for him off-piste. Müller brings mountains of style to the crew on both the road and the snow. Travis knows that no snowboard film would be complete without contributions from this Swiss mister.
Mark Landvik, aka "Lando", is one of Travis' favorite partners in crime as they push each other, the boundaries of snowboarding and patience of strangers worldwide. Lando honed his AK power freestyle skills in his childhood backyard, the jagged peaks outside of Juneau, Alaska. When not on the road filming, Lando can be found exploring the terrain around Mt. Baker, Washington. Look for his alter ego, Hank, to provide comic relief throughout "The Art of FLIGHT."
Jake Blauvelt made his first major global statement by winning the U.S. Open in 2004, but since has dedicated himself to mastering the craft in natural terrain. His smooth, creative, and effortless-looking style is unlike any other. Snowboarder Magazine took notice of the Vermont-native placing him on the list of 'Top 10 Riders of the Year' in both 2009 and 2010. His laid back attitude, mixed with a good sense of humor served him well on location with the "The Art of FLIGHT" crew in South America.
Pat Moore is both jack and master of all trades when it comes to snowboarding. One year he's greasing rails for slopestyle accolades and taking a pass through the Grand Prix halfpipe. The next he's become the new king of massive airs and skipping contests to build banging video parts. Through all the manifestations, Pat found the ability to fly. He holds "Highest Air" honors in the quarterpipe at the Oakley Stylemasters in China, the Abominable Snow Jam at Timberline, and the U.S. Open. Flying in style won him "Best Trick" for a massive 20-foot McTwist at the Arctic Challenge. Pat showed his good nature on the road when he took a dare from Rice to sprint across an icy Canadian lake on a snowmobile, as seen in "That's It, That's All." That willing spirit and his diverse skills as a snowboarder made him an great fit for "The Art of FLIGHT" crew.

Known by most as 'DCP,' Carrier-Porcheron carries serious weight including 18 years in the pro ranks and endless legendary film parts. A world-renowned backcountry rider, DCP has an arsenal of freestyle talent that he unleashes out in the wild. Canadian-born DCP splits his time between Squamish, British Columbia, Vail, Colorado, and Costa Rica, with his wife and daughter. He caught up with the "The Art of FLIGHT" crew to film in his neck of the woods, western Canada for a few epic adventures.
When Lago isn't taking home Olympic medals or being feted in a parade on Jimmy Kimmel, he's traveling the world. Since the 2010 Olympics, Lago's best known for his halfpipe skills, but often climbs the podium for quarterpipe and slopestyle victories. The 23-year-old competed in every snowboard contest, halfpipe, slopestyle, method and big air at Winter X Games in 2011, all with a broken jaw and a liquid diet. Lago's style shined through as he convincingly won X Games gold for best method, the benchmark trick for classic style in snowboarding. His versatility goes far beyond the park and pipe. In "The Art of FLIGHT," the down-home, New Hampshire-native gets back to nature as he takes his refined tricks deep into the mountains with Travis Rice and the crew. A fresh joie de vivre and lust for life, makes Lago a perfect travel companion.
Eero Niemela has been heating up the snowboard scene globally for over a decade. He came in hot from freezing Finland with a standout part in 2005 with Whiteout Films' "The Big Blind." That part helped to win him that year's TransWorld's Rookie of the Year honor. His smooth, clean riding style soars in park and powder. While Niemela still considers Finland's Talma resort his home resort, he now splits time between San Clemente, CA and Squamish, BC.
Unanimously named 'Rider of the Year' by endemic snowboarding magazines in both 2010 and 2011, as well as 'Video Part of the Year' in 2011, John Jackson seamlessly fits into any locale "The Art of FLIGHT" crew could track down. In the mountains, the Mammoth-local keeps cameras rolling as he drops one of his four different double inverted spins on lock among his progressive line-up of tricks. Tricks aside, serious style and an easy-going attitude on and off snow make Jackson an integral part of the "The Art of FLIGHT" adventure.

There are a number of words to describe Jeremy Jones: environmentalist, big mountain rider, film star, husband, father and entrepreneur. As the preeminent big-mountain freerider of today, visions of Jones about to drop from the peak of a knife ridgeline are ingrained in the minds of every snowboard film fan. Legend status is locked down for the eight-time Snowboarder Magazine 'Big Mountain Rider of the Year,' winner of numerous big mountain and extreme contests, and over two dozen awe inspiring video parts in the library. The Squaw Valley-local was featured in the stunning Alaska segment of "That's It, That’s All."
