It’s Hard to follow up the Art Of Flight but Travis Rice’s new film, The Fourth Phase, could easily be the most heavily anticipated snowboarding movie of all time. It’s been over four years since His last flick and since then Rice has been off the grid. After taking a season off filming, there was his X Games Real Snow Backcountry entry in 2013, consisting of one run down an Alaska face. There were a few GoPro clips here and there, and a glimmer of hope that Rice would be following up the truly epic Art of Flight. Last year, he blasted out a clip of himself hitting what is possibly the heaviest AK descent ever attempted, appropriately dubbed, “The Crack”.
Aside from from that, and a few other shots, Red Bull Media House has kept photos, footy, and locations from the Fourth Phase in the vault, until now. The film features Rice, Mark Landvik, Mikkel Bang, Eric Jackson, Pat Moore, Bryan Iguchi, and more, but is still scheduled for release a year from now. Rice and crew will be shooting for one more season, so stay tuned for the next epic adventure.

Heroes aren’t self-anointed. They don’t plan to elevate themselves to greatness. They aren’t calculated. They pursue what they love and live life simply with the purpose of living it. We recognize their aspirations and adventures as pieces of ourselves that we want to see lived out. By watching them take the risk, they raise our expectations of ourselves and inspire us to believe beyond what we initially thought to be the limit.
