"It's really ridiculous to walk out my front door and snowboard down into my private snowboard park," says DC Shoes president Ken Block in the opening of Mtn.Lab (DC Films, $30), a new snowboard DVD about his dream oasis. More fantastic is building a slide that you can ride through your front door, across your living room and out your balcony into Utah's Wasatch Range. The 30-minute video, which comes with a 120-page book with photos of the DC Shoes R&D center, is filled with visually creative shots of pro riders jumping over rails and through hula hoops. A clip of Travis Rice launching over two road gaps with no cars or people in sight captures the beauty of Mountain Lab. Says Rice, "Could you ask for a better setup?" --Y.Y.
