As Cody Booth made his yearly migration to Alaska in search of untouched lines and epic powder – The weather was less then cooperative.
Armed with a map and pending weather forecast a decision was made to head west…as far west as possible.
The Aleutians were formed by volcanic reaction and to this day still host large active volcanoes; many with lines, couloirs and untouched possibilities. – An adventure to unbelievable to pass up for Thomas Delfino and Aspen Rain Weaver, who headed north to meet Cody in the wild frontier.
Weather, grizzly bears, and a lack of amenities made this into one of the grittiest missions to date. The little town welcomed these unusual visitors but the surrounding terrain made no concessions, forcing the crew to get creative as they searched for first descents and fresh lines.

This is KBR's 10th snowboarding movie. The season 2013-2014 was a really hard one because of the worst snow conditions in northern Europe we have ever witnessed. We had to travel up north to Finnish Lapland countless times to get things done. Some of the riders went for a long trip to Canada where a lot of stuff was done with the french ripper Niels Schack who was a new addition to the crew. We also managed to make a trip to the Alps to get some backcountry shots for the movie. The season ended up being an adventure which all of us will remember for a lifetime. We are extremely proud that we made it and we can offer you our tenth movie KING COBRA. Take your time, turn up the volume and enjoy the movie!

Ps. We will have a break of making KBR movies after King Cobra.
