Leave it to Shaun White to bring snow to Los Angeles. The two-time Olympic gold medalist hosted his Air + Style in the City of Angels again this year, with acts like Major Lazer, Flume, and POWERS tagging along. The two-day festival combined your usual musical and art fare with a staggering 16-story snowboard jump and trick competition with some of today's most talented and ambitious snowboarders. I have to admit, as a snowboarder of nearly two decades, I was skeptical of the whole snowboard culture mixing with L.A. culture, but Air + Style pulled it off with aplomb. Turns out, Los Angeles, if snow were to ever become a thing there, could easily assimilate to boarder culture. It already wears the brazen attitude on its palm treed sleeves.
Ahead, a selection of the weekend's coolest (sometimes literally) moments and people. Rain may have been in the forecast over snow, but the style was nevertheless chill. How very snowboarder. How very L.A.
Thigh-highs, frayed flares, fatigues, and peach: A+ looks, ladies.
