Alex Yoder is a professional snowboarder, filmmaker, environmental/ health advocate, writer and traveler based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He has been snowboarding professionally for six years and continues to stand out in the industry for his unique approach to the profession. After a series of injuries Alex chose to re-assess his trajectory and ride his snowboard in a simpler way inspired by Japanese snowboard shaper and rider Taro Tamai. He traded in massive jumps and technical trickery for a more subtle approach focused on finding the cleanest line down the mountain and mastering the simpler aspects of riding the board.
