On April 9, 16-year-old Hiroto Ogiwara carved an indelible mark in snowboarding history by landing the first-ever backside 2160.
Take one exceptionally skilled teen rider, wrap him in a neon orange jacket, hand him a high-end snowboard, and watch him pull off six complete rotations without touching the ground — and you’ve got the finale to The Nines Crans-Montana 2022.
It was one for the world record books. Ogiwara wasn’t the only freshly minted legend on site. Earlier in the week, fellow Japanese snowboarder Reira Iwabuchi became the first woman to land a frontside triple 1260.
Scope out Hiroto Ogiwara’s exceptional run in this adrenaline-thumping reel. Fair warning, though — it’ll make saying goodbye to powder season just a little bit harder.
