15-year-old Nitro rider Marcus Kleveland has experienced a lot of firsts over the past few seasons. He became the youngest person to throw a triple cork 1440 at age 13. He became the first person to throw a 1080 off a mogul. In the Red Bull Media House production, "The Powder Virgin," he ventures into the backcountry for the first time with Finnish veteran pro rider, Eero Ettala.
Most slopestyle athletes suffer a humility-inducing learning curve when they take their tricks off natural features and into powder landings. Not so with Kleveland, who takes to the backcountry like a pro right off the bat.
