Fireworks in the terrain park? Yeah, things get a little weird in this one. From our friends over at Salomon Snowboards comes “HOMEGROWN by Max Buri,” a film following the Swiss savant throughout the course of the season. Whether he’s cranking a method, hand planting natural features or doing doubles, Max rides with power and poise. Pair that with filmmaker Colden Rand’s expertise behind the lens and in the editing room and greatness was bound to ensue.

A word from Salomon about the film:
“HOMEGROWN” – a hometown snowboard video showcasing the mountains and terrain where Max Buri grew up riding. With the world locked down and no travel options, it created the perfect opportunity for Max to ride at his hometown resort and rediscover what Grindelwald has to offer. In addition to the barriers created by the pandemic, it was also the two warmest consecutive winters to date for his hometown, receiving regular lashings of dust carried from the Sahara and little snowfall. Nevertheless, the windlips were plenty, the fondue warm, and the fireworks bright.
