“I met Tyler Morton briefly once at Mount Hood on a road trip filled with powder, broken boards, and the stench of 100 plus day snowboard boots. While chilling in the parking lot of Timberline barbecuing we talked briefly about snowboarding and what we had going on, this interview is not that discussion. Instead this interview took place over many weeks of email exchanges as he was off in Montana filming and shredding. Tyler is a different breed of snowboarder going a different route, one that is rockier than most and possibly more rewarding. He doesn’t have a board sponsor, he’s currently without a binding hook up, and his feet are not endorsed, yet he still manages to get the shot and slash the pow.”
