RIDE is proud to introduce OFF COURSE. A project driven by Jake Blauvelt to display a month-long trip through the high forests of interior British Columbia with Jake Welch and Shane Pospisil. The team synced up with Canadian native filmmaker Gabe Langlois to capture the riding, the sledding, and the moments in between. The concept was simple. Head to the mountains, find a path, and head in the opposite direction: Off Course. 

In an exclusive interview, Jake Welch talks about the project and what snowboarding means to him. Check it out over on Snowboardmag.com.
