Last winter, adidas riders Forest Bailey, Keegan Valaika, Artem Smolin, Alex Tank and friend Jonas Michilot flew across the world to Russia to find snow and exotic adventure. While this was foremost a snowboard trip, the foreign destination provided a draw of small enclaves stuck in time, street black markets littered with unusual items, and a 58-hour trainride that would bring the crew from place to place. Together with filmer Pierre Minhondo and photographer Bob Plumb, the group traversed Russia and Mongolia, exploring the unfamiliar culture while searching for spots. The resulting video of this TransSiberian trip is one that not only provides a stacked reel of snowboard shots but also induces intoxicating wanderlust.
