Whether you're raising a ruckus in the park's jump line or sneaking into forbidden urban areas for midnight jib sessions, the Salomon Villain Wide Snowboard inspires you to break freestyle boundaries and destroy preconceived notions of what's possible on your snowboard. Designed for the technical freestyle wizardry of Louif Paradis, the Villain excels on everything from triple-kinks in the streets to backcountry jumps into fluffy powder. This particular version is wider for bigger riders desiring extra stability for their larger-than-average feet. The Rock Out Camber profile gives Lou the pop and stability of camber, but with a more forgiving feel. A large flat section between the bindings provides stability, while camber underneath the bindings keeps your board loaded up for huge ollies and locked into carves while you're cruising outside the park. After the cambered sections, the board transitions to rocker at the tip and tail. These rocker zones loosen it up a bit, injecting a bit of playfulness into an otherwise responsive freestyle board, as well as allowing it to float in powder better than its twin shape would suggest. Seeing it's intended for loading up huge ollies and clearing kickers, the Villain's Aspen Select core retains a smooth, consistent flex throughout, complemented with Salomon's Popster Booster additives of snappy carbon stringers for increased ollie power. Slingshot sidewalls insert snappy carbon stringers into vibration-damping rubber blocks directly underfoot, resulting in a smoother feel with heightened response when you're railing carves and snapping off the lip. Ultimately, this advanced construction retains the playfulness you've come to love from the Villain, but makes it more adept at cruising the entire mountain when you're not feeling the park.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
