WELCOME TO THE TEAM - JONNY PICKUP
We could not be more excited about the new addition of Jonny to our Snowboard Team. With a pedigree in surfing and skating since he was a kid Jonny only strapped into a snowboard 4 years ago, but has had the most progressive and impressive 4 years riding we've ever seen! (just look at the hammers in this edit) Now having been snatched up fast he's riding for Rome Snowboards, Thirty Two, Transform Gloves, Dalikfodda, Sandbox and The Pretzel Company and has his first feature in the latest Grindhouse production 'Hallucinate' out soon! From all of the team at Route One....WELCOME!
Episode 1 of the Route One: Parked Up In Europe trip sees the Route One Snowboard Team travel from the City of London, crammed in a motorhome, set for the European Alps to uncover some of Europe's hidden snowparks.
First stop was Snowpark Gstaad, nestled away in the South West of Switzerland. Then on to the South Tyrol, just over the Italian border to the Schöneben Snowpark that sits above Lake Resia.
They set off mid March for 9 days predicting sunny skies and spring conditions, perfect for lapping the parks....the reality was quite different, with one of the biggest snow storms of the European winter to kick off the trip meant for some sketchy mountain driving and more powder turns than rail lines.
Watch out for Episode 2 coming soon to see the team continue their journey through the Alps on to Austria to check out the Planai Superpark and Hochkonig's King's Park.
Featuring Si Belson, Will Radula-Scott, Rowan Biddiscombe and Cody Hierons.

Route One were lucky enough to enjoy a nice refreshing pint with Pat Moore when he visited UK on his epic world premiere tour for his Volcom movie Mr Plant. Pat has been one of the best all round freestyle snowboarders the world has ever seen for the past 10 years and he's only 27! So its no wonder that Volcom wanted to show every aspect of snowboarding that Pat rips at and is joined by his friends, which happen to be also some of the best riders around.
Needless to say, there was a lot of questions we wanted to ask, check out the interview here to get a great insight to the life of Pat Moore!
Last April the Route One Snowboard Team embarked on another adventure, taking them to the Scandi land of Norway, where come the end of April there was still tons of snow to ride with long days and short nights...perfect!
The team consisted of R1 riders Si Belson, Rowan Biddiscombe, Cody Hierons and Will Radula-Scott accompanied by the Reason Mag senior photographer James North and Family Creative filmer Greg Lindley.
The boys few in to Bergen, a beautiful coastal city and then drove through the Norwegian hills to the solitary resort of Mrykdalen where they spent the next 3 days exploring and riding anything and everything they thought possible...
