The Snowboarder’s Journal and Nokian Tyres present Shakedown Run, a short film documenting the transformation and travels of Austin Smith’s 1953 GMC firetruck. During the winter of 2019-20, Austin redesigned his firetruck camper to be lighter, more efficient, and more roadworthy. We joined him in March for a trial run around Oregon—a thousand miles from Bend to Willamette Pass, Anthony Lakes, Mt. Hood, Hoodoo Ski Area and back home at Mt. Bachelor. Camping in the parking lot, he reconnects with the soul of snowboarding while minimizing distractions and maximizing his time on-hill.
