Hard-working picture-taker Gabe L'Heureux will tell you that snowboard photographers are the ultimate nomads. "Shoot here, shoot there, travel, travel, travel," he says. "Then suddenly it's late spring and everyone's over it for the season. Then you're sitting there in the heat digging through photos you shot six months ago."

Deep into summer photo editing, L'Heureux handpicked a collection for us that personifies the snowboard photographer roaming-the-world spirit: great action and secret moments outside the spotlight -- like this shot of Scotty Lago in France, snatching a post-contest powder turn before the X Games Tignes superpipe lights click off.
