Episode 3 of 4. Uploaded by GoPro. In this third episode, Travis and longtime partner-in-crime Mark Landvik push the boundaries of the Japanese Alps on huge pillow lines as they chase the notoriously deep powder of this supernatural country. Mark’s sense of humor shines brightly bringing out the lighter side of Travis – and unveils a friendship built on decades of missions in the backcountry. Playful moments between Travis and Mark are juxtaposed with dicey terrain during their ongoing chase to find the perfect storm.
GoPro presents a four-part series – ‘GoPro Perspectives: The Fourth Phase with Travis Rice’ – which lends an intimate view of what it’s like to be Travis Rice, as he drops in on some of the world’s biggest lines during the filming of this Red Bull Media House production. By tapping into Travis’ mindset – much of the time through his head cam – we come to understand the skill and calculation that is essential to getting the shot and staying safe in the backcountry. At its core this series highlights some of the best action from “The Fourth Phase,” but it is also very much about the necessary friendship between Travis and his fellow riders – Eric Jackson, Mark Landvik and Victor de Le Rue. Each episode begins with a raw moment that’s best captured from the GoPro point of view. In this partnership with Red Bull Media House, GoPro has searched through nearly two years of the best GoPro footage to reveal this story to the action sports community. Stay tuned for more episodes and #GoProSnow content throughout this fall and into Winter 2017.
