This is yet another part of the Snowboarding's Dead series by Alex Andrews. The goal of the project is to find the deep roots in snowboarding culture that really make the industry thrive. If you missed the previous card (http://www.vingle.net/posts/661506) here is a little information on the series as well as the focus of this part of the series. Alex Andrews is the Burton Snowboards Brand Ambassador, has been working on this project Snowboarding's Dead, searching for local snowboarding shops and underground snowboarding scenes that breath life into snowboard culture! This installment takes a look inside Minnesota's snowboarding culture. Many famous snowboarders have grown and developed out of Minnesota and Alex is in search of why. It's not big mountains as one might expect, but snowboard parks, snow blanketed urban landscapes, supportive local shops, and great people.
