Snowboarder Luca Pandolfi Dies In Avalanche

by The Editors on March 22, 2021

Italian big mountain snowboarder and Chamonix, France local Luca Pandolfi died in an avalanche in Aosta, Italy on Wednesday, March 17, 2020. He was 47 years old. Jones Snowboards, his longtime board sponsor had this to say about Pandolfi.

Standing tall, with a smile as big as the boards he rode, Luca Pandolfi was not your average Chamonix shredder. Luca was a native Italian from the Piedmont region, but he lived in Chamonix for the last decade and his riding style mirrored his background. He put his heart and soul into every turn he made and was a cutting edge alpinist who chased untracked trophy lines and first descents all over the world. When he dropped in there was no mistaking his motivation, he loved to ride fast and rip big turns in big terrain.
