Salem Studio Recording Session of “Mountains in You” and Backcountry Snowboarding in Alaska

Risan Media produced a video of the Salem recording session of Todd Anders Johnson’s Mountains in You at World Famous Studios in Arvada, CO with some backcountry split boarding and skiing in Valdez, Haines, and Turnagain Pass, Alaska!

Mountains in you

I started riding back in 86’, Jay Peak local style

Coming from ski racing, then Sorels with ski boot liners

Reset my riding in the Northwest, from out of the Emerald city

Oceans to rainforest and Olympics, Cascades to the East

 

Deep days at Baker, Crystal, Alpental

Summer sessions at Mt. Hood Meadows to top it all

Hiking Paradise to Camp Muir with my mother

From then big mountains and glacier lover

 

Soon regular trips to AK

A quick flight or the Bellingham ferry

Chugach and Chilkats opened my mind and my soul

Thirteen years annual I feel it my home

 

I used to snowshoe to get to the zone, had my board strapped to my back

Then I met the fine folks at Voile and I started making skintracks

Since 91’ the splitboard design, Cowboy and Wally collaborated

Now we knuckledraggers have a way to skin up the mountains elevated

 

Deep days in the Wasatch Range, Utah lake effect is insane

Been splittin up the road from SLC, big and little Cottonwood are the place to be

Isn’t it true the passion for the mountains in you will take you places in your heart too?

Deep breaths with every skintrack set, your life on the path it does connect

 

Found a way to make music and follow the pow

Found the right players that heard the same call

Took some classes to get some skills for the goods

We’re riding on Voile like you knew we would

 

Once again booking a season for me and my bros

Salem pow tour bringing us to your zone

Lower 48 and again Canadian

I’m finding our winter family does extend

 

Deep days 10 Mile Range summer corn sessions

Colorado sunshine a blessing

Been splittin out my door, now my wife

Is onboard and we are living the life

 

Isn’t it true the passion for the mountains in you will take you places in your heart too?

Deep breaths with every skintrack set, your life on the path it does connect
