Who is Pepper? Ep. 6—Nils Mindnich

Who is Pepper? is a behind the scenes series highlighting the eclectic cast of snowboarders from SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s latest feature-length film, Pepper. Directed by Jon Stark, check out the full movie on iTunes here!

But now for Episode 6, take a look at one of the youngest riders in the movie, Nils Mindnich. From Stowe to Salt Lake, Nils has been strapped in since the age of four, and maybe even before that according to Ted Borland.

Rising through the ranks with his brother Hans at marquee events like The Launch and Superpark, as well as past movie projects like SNOWBOARDER’s Foreword, style and grab selection always separated Nils from the pack. And he even further separated from the pack, or rather ingrained himself into the snowboarding history books, when he took first place at the Legendary Mt. Baker Banked Slalom in the regular and switch pro division.

Needless to say, we were stoked to have him come on board for this latest venture, and we can’t wait to see where he goes next. Keep an eye out for his full part dropping on the site and pick up a copy of Pepper today!
