WHERE YOU AT, STEVIE BELL?

Date: July 11, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

By William Fraser Well, folks, I’m happy to present to you a man with a Colgate smile, Stevie Bell! Cuz really, where the heck has this guy been? We deserve to know, considering he is one of the most recognizable faces in snowboarding. I mean, how many black athletes has snowboarding had over the years? Not many. But, what’s he doing now?  Is he a chef? A pipefitter? A programmer? A professional poker player? Answers are coming, but, as per usual with this series, we’re going to start...

DILLON OJO | 1995 - 2018

Date: July 3, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features | news

It was a heavy Friday morning hearing about the tragic and deeply saddening news of Dillon Ojo's accidental passing. Dillon's infectious positivity and personality will be missed most. Everything about Dillon's life was gold, his style and approach to living was untouchable. And while we'll miss him like hell here on earth, heaven is lucky to have their newest star. There's nothing we can say or do to ease the pain of those closest to his greatness. But reflecting on all he shared with our...

DILLON OJO | A SLICE OF LIFE

INTERVIEW BY EVAN RISSI  Dillon, let’s talk about one of your favourite things in life: pizza. How and why did this happen? I don’t really don’t why [laughs], just everyone loves pizza. The vibe around it is the best. When you travel a lot, there are so many spots and different kinds of pizza. Plus, a lot of times growing up my family didn’t eat together too much or make dinners, so we’d order in a lot of pizza. I always liked it and grew up eating it, but only recently...

...As Told to King Snow Magazine We were in Utah, in the High Uintas mountains. It was January 11, 2017. It was a high avy day, super deep and nuking snow, we knew the conditions. There were 10 of us at a little private cat operation. Where you're sort of responsible for yourself, but you know and rely on your crew at the same time. So that was the kind of situation we were in heading out. The plan was to stay in low elevation, stay in trees and keep it safe. It took most of the day to...

Age | 22 Place | Whistler, BC Sponsors | DOPE INDUSTRIES, SANDBOX, SALMON ARMS, FIX, SPY Where did you grow up and when did you start boarding? I grew in the house we’re in right now, in Whistler, BC. I started boarding when I was five years old. Basically, grew up boarding Whis my whole life. My parents killed it.

ECS 7TH ANNUAL | PHOTO RECAP

Date: June 1, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Lucky number seven for the ECS semi secret super sensational Invitational went down this past Saturday May 26th. The momentum keeps rolling on this event, and it was said multiple times to be the best yet. Always scheming something new, Evan (ECS) drew up the blueprints with a new feature for this year dubbed the "rabbit hole" and delivered. It ended being a center point for the day. Along with the classic tombstone top, an ever growing crowd, and the best host mountain, the event was one...

HOLY BOWLY '18 | MT. HOOD

Date: May 29, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Why do we snowboard? We should all be able to agree that we’re out here for a good time. Whether for you that’s pushing yourself to death-defying limits, or keeping yourself safely close to ground and butter’in your day away, the end result should be the same, to have fun. The HOLY BOWLY is unequivocally fun. It is really like the Bonus Level in a video game. We mostly spend our winters riding the local hill dialling in the hit runs, or travelling to other resorts for more hit runs....

BEST STORY EVER | CHARLES REID

Date: May 24, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Skyhawk in the Wind As told to King Snow... At the end of last season, I kind of overshot a stepdown in the backcountry and tweaked my knee. I was really depressed, and was like, “You know what? I'm just going to take my summer off.” I went home to Quebec and decided to finish my flying course and get my pilot’s licence. I've been wanting to do that for so long. I already started it a few years back and had flown a few hours. It took me about four and a half months to finish. I bought...

BACKYARD SESSION | STONEHAM, QC

Date: April 24, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Winter in Quebec has been good and the clips have been even better. The streets are dry and now it's time for one last slushy gathering in Quebec. It's safe to say there's now a real spring tradition here at Stoneham resort, QC. For a couple years now, local jibbers and jumpers have been enjoying the last park weekend of the season before trading their bindings for some grip tape. This year's Backyard Session, put together by ski legend JF Houle, in partnership with Today's parks, Picture...

GRAB ON! HOW TO CARRY YOUR SNOWBOARD

Date: April 18, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Over thousands of years of evolutionary history, homosapiens have evolved to carry many different things in many different ways. They can be dexterous when holding a quill, brutish when holding a bolder, and polite when holding a fart. Thanks to some opposable thumbs and lanky arms, the options are abundant. With this in mind, keep from binding yourself to a less edgy way of doing things by raising your (heel)cup to the sky, and promising to unleash some inner creativity next time you grab...

Whistler Valley Snowboard Club @whistervalley Twenty years ago, Whistler Valley Snowboard Club was one of the first of its kind. Today, WVSC is the longest-running in Canadian history. There are clubs all across Canada, they are a staple at every resort. Despite the solo pursuit and unstructured nature of snowboarding, there’s a place for the club scene in snowboarding. There’s nothing wrong with a squad and a little guidance. Enter Rob Picard and Joe McAdoo; they’ve been carrying the...

December 14, 2017, and Craig McMorris is spending his 26th birthday with friend Anto Chamberland to give us the insider scoop on how he balances two extremely demanding careers, one as a Montreal firefighter and the other as a pro snowboarder. Yes, you read that right. The guy is a firefighter AND a pro shred? Who’s got time for that? Shit! Anto Chamberland does. And who better to conduct this interview than Anto’s homie, Craig. At this point, Anto is in the middle of another battle...

OAKLEY WEEK WHISTLER | HELI & TOURING

Once again it was OAKLEY Week in Whistler and we were invited to tag along for some Heli boarding and a one-day touring clinic. The Heli day was all-time. The rider list from Oakley is made up of some of the top snowboarders in the world. In the lineup was Rusty Ockenden, Charles Reid, Craig McMorris, Tyler Nicholson, Sean Pettit (the pro skier rode his snowboard all day), and very recent Olympic gold medalists Jamie Anderson and Sebastien Toutant. We all took off from Whistler and touched...

ROBIN VAN GYN | FEATURE INTERVIEW

[o] Priscilla Cannon Interview by Stephanie Lake The hype is real when it comes to Robin Van Gyn. She is a straight up one hell of a talented female rider who leaves you nothing short of inspired while watching her kill it in the backcountry. Whether you’re a guy or a gal, we can all agree here… Robin and the female crew she rolls with (Leanne Pelosi, Helen Schettini, Annie Boulanger, and Marie-France Roy just to name a few) continue to impress the shred nation with what they’ve...

John Leslie was recently named to the 2018 Paralympic Snowboard Team. He's an Ontario native that has been training out of Whistler, BC for the past 6 years. John lost his left leg to cancer as a kid and snowboards on Canada Snowboard's National Para Team. Why tell you about John's story when we could show you.

2018 OLYMPIC PREVIEW

Date: February 14, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

THE OLYMPIC SHAKEDOWN “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?” They’re back, baby! Four years ago we watched the introduction of Slopestyle with a pessimistic eye. Any event with that much hype rarely delivers. Behind mountains of speculation and controversy, no one imagined the contest would rise to the occasion. We ate our words as we watched the best in the world ride at a level never thought possible. It proved anything can happen. With the introduction of big air, we’re destined to be...
