This past year, Louif Paradis and Harrison Gordon visited Wolle’s hometown of Mayrhofen to better understand the complex prototyping process and to see where Wolle carved his teeth as a snowboarder and a shaper.
“With decades of powder riding and a profound expertise in shaping boards, Wolle Nyvelt has developed a refined process for creating prototypes, utilizing rider feedback and focusing on craftsmanship using the finest materials. The Hillside Project Series is a continuous pursuit in the development of authentic powder shapes, designed to reflect diversity in terrain, snow, and riding style. This is our vision of powder riding.” – Salomon Snowboards
A couple of quotes from the one and only Harrison Gordon:
“Following Wolle around his zones is like having a magician show you the secrets to all of their tricks. With an enviable amount of experience and otherworldly skill, Wolle is easily one the best riders in the world. Not to mention his never-ending desire to find new terrain and land dope tricks. He is an unstoppable force. With Wolle at the helm of creating prototypes and new shapes for the Hillside Project, we are in the best hands possible.” – Harrison Gordon
“Getting to shape a board with him and Lou was an unforgettable experience. To see a master like Wolle working his craft added a whole new perspective to the boards underneath our feet.” – Harrison Gordon
