Powder and Rails Season 2 Is Coming

Despite not really being “core snowboarders,” VBS.tv manages to put together one hell of a show on the history of snowboarding. They are good at this shit. Season two starts December 15th continues for a bunch of Tuesdays to come. Here’s the full schedule, trailer, and all the dirt.

Season two of “Powder & Rails” is barreling down the mountain like Sonny Bono on a Vicodin binge.
The episodes will begin airing December 15, 2009 on VBS.tv.

Each of the five new episodes will be lengthy mini-documentaries jammed full of every historical detail
possible concerning the development of the sport we now know as snowboarding. They are for the super
geeks out there.

The second season of “Powder & Rails” will feature Tom Sims, Jamie Lynn, Shawn Farmer, Noah
Salasnek, Chris Roach, Mike Ranquet, and Circe Wallace. Some repeat offenders from Season 1 (Shaun
White, Damian Sanders, Jerry Dugan, Mike Hatchett, Tom Burt, Dave Seoane, and Jeff Brushie) will also
be making appearances.

Episode 1 will feature the one and only Shawn Farmer. The Farmer episode features some beer, an
aborted rap career, gigantic boards, and a ton of personality.

Noah Salasnek will be the focus of the second episode. Noah excelled in everything: vert skating, tricks
form the early 90s that you can only pull off while wearing big pants, and later he rode big mountain more
stylish than anyone. Come to think of it, Noah might’ve been the first pro skater to become a pro
snowboarder.

Our third subject will be Chris Roach. He had more style than pretty much everyone from his era put
together. We learn how he and Mike Ranquet invented switch tricks and how they later managed to get
kicked out of Japan and thrown off of snowboarding’s World Cup tour–forever.

Number four will take place among the sidelines of the Legends of Tahoe Vintage Snowboard Event. All
the older pros show up, ride their old boards, wear their old gear, and throw down old-school tricks in an
old-school, hand-shoveled halfpipe. Sure, these guys have gotten older but their style never will.

The last episode catches up with Dave Seoane and his eccentric living conditions. Dave was a pro
snowboarder before he parlayed his skills into a filmmaking career. He has made some of the greatest
and most well-known snowboarding videos of all time. We talk about some stuff in his apartment, ice
cream with cigarette butts in it, all the videos he was in, and the ones he made.
