Snowboard Iskola

NFL player Kenny Stills, known for his passion beyond the gridiron, embarked on a unique journey that took him from the fast-paced world of professional football to the serene mountains of Aspen. His winter sojourn was inspired by an event known as "Culture Shifters," a creation of Zeb Powell and Selema Masekela. This gathering aimed to unite BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) trailblazers, fostering a close-knit community of snowboarders that embodies the vision for the future of snowboarding – one that is diverse, inclusive, and empowering.

Kenny Stills, a wide receiver renowned for his activism and advocacy, found himself drawn to this transformative event. Intrigued by the prospect of being part of a movement committed to reshaping the snowboarding landscape, he ventured to Aspen, Colorado, where the Culture Shifters event was held.
