Donner Pass is known as the treacherous path westward in which travelers in the mid-1800s resulted to cannibalism to survive the harsh conditions. Yes…they ate each other to stay alive. Fast forward to modern time 200+ years later, and the picturesque 2.4 mile highway has caught the eye of some of the world’s top downhill longboarders. With it’s elevation change of over 2,000 feet, aggressive corners and possible top speeds of up to 45 mph, the Sector 9 team took advantage of the closed road to explore the dangers that lurk at every corner.

Riders: Louis Pilloni, A.J. Haiby, Jimmy Riha, Micah Green, and Jackson Shapiera

Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe most of his life. Skateboarding made it easier to get around, eventually leading to a long trek skate adventure across Kenya. With a new appreciation for skateboards and some good connections, Les dropped everything to make skateboarding his life and, as they say, it's all been downhill since. Now Editor at Skate[Slate] and one of the owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les spends the rest of his time raising his first kid, plugged into the skate-web, and skating with Coast Longboarding.
