The Grateful Dead, an American rock band, was on the stage from 1965 to 1995. The musicians were mentioned in the Rolling Stone issue in the list of the greatest artists of all time. “Fire on the Mountain” was recorded back in 1978. It is a fusion of many genres including rock, country, folk, and blues. The texture of the composition is thin and light with electronic instrumental tones. It is definitely a good track for carving on the sun-drenched snow.

The debut piece was released in 2015. “Runaway” has become the most recognized song by Galantis.

The already mentioned Above & Beyond presents “We are All We Need”. The composition has a little melancholic prolonged intro, fast beast, energetic electro instrumental tones and marvelous vocals. Featuring incredible Zoe Johnston, this song will be a good addition to your relaxing part of the snowboarding music list.
“You’re On” – Madeon
Madeon, a French DJ and electro music producer, released the “You’re On” composition in 2014. The composition has very light music despite the thick texture. A perfect combination of sweet vocals, piano instrumental and synth style will add to the charming atmosphere of easiness high in the mountains.
“Zephyr” – Madeon
The song does not require lyrics to touch the soul of a snowboarder. A masterfully composed structure brings pure delight to the ear. A title of this chilling synth wave composition fits snowboarding experience as nothing else. Personally, I have always been associating “Zephyr” with the fresh snow so tempting to carve it with a fast sharp board.
