During the winter of 2010, photographer, filmmaker, and former sponsored snowboarder, Jim Mangan, left an 11-year career in the business side of snowboarding and lit out for the remote backcountry of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains to recharge and redirect. Accompanying him were seven accomplished snowboarders—including his college friend, Peter Sutherland, now a renowned photographer and artist, as well as rising stars of the sport’s next generation, like
Laura Hadar and Alex Andrews. Away from the corporate sponsors, the perfectly manicured terrain parks and halfpipes, and the ever-present audience, the riders literally stripped away all artifice—along with their clothing—in a powerful artistic
statement that honors the original roots of the sport.
Using vintage snowboards from the early 1980s, and clad only in vibrant Native
American blankets that contrast with the stark winter landscape, the seven riders
soared naked and uninhibited down empty slopes. Ultimately, for the photographer,
the riders, and the viewers, Winter’s Children becomes a baptism, with the cold snow
washing away the neon filth of consumerism and serving as a bracing reminder of
snowboarding’s pure origins.
