JOHN LESLIE NAMED TO PARALYMPIC SNOWBOARD TEAM

Date: February 22, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features | video

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. Watch the episode of The Drive we did on John last year below. Fill those of us who may not know in, what are the Paralympics? In short it is the games for people living with a...

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...

QUESTIONING THE OLYMPICS

Date: February 8, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Was this the best thing to happen to snowboarding at the Olympics? Johnny Lyall, Indy Bomb from the cheap seats right into the welcoming the world to Vancouver, Canada in 2010. He could have bunted under the pressure, big time. Instead, he rode away like a golden god. If you’re asking, here’s what we’re thinking… Should snowboard contests be run by snowboarders? Yes. Does snowboarding belong in the Olympics? Nope. Is snowboarding even about competition? We don’t believe so....

AL MAILHOT | BRUNERS 2 | INTERVIEW & VIDEO PART

Date: January 31, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features | video

Alexis grew up snowboarding under Je Page's wing, which allowed him to be around some of Quebec's all-time greatest snowboarders, and the early Nowamean crew. He started filming for the Nowamean videos around the same time as the rest of our crew, and progressed alongside all of us. He quickly became part of The Bruners and has been filming sick parts ever since. —Julien Choiniere  Watch | THE BRUNERS VIDEO II | FULL VIDEO You've openly said that you don't aspire at being a pro...

OR + SNOWSHOW 2018 | PRODUCT OF THE FUTURE

Date: January 27, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

We’ve seen the future! We came, we saw, we dried out in the mile high city. Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show kicked off their first year of collaboration at the Denver convention centre. While wandering through a maze of white-men-wearing-plaid and outdoor enthusiasts being trapped indoors, we found ourselves sticking to our own kind in the snowboard corner where new snowboard product for 2019 ran ramped. There were high vibes, high fives and plenty to be excited about as the future of...

TALES FROM THE SEYMOUR BACKCOUNTRY

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

In the east corner of North Vancouver, we have little Mount Seymour, weighing in with three chairlifts and just 330 metres of vertical drop. On paper, it doesn’t sound like much. It wouldn't have a fighting chance against the trail map of a corporate-merger resort conglomerate. Despite its humble statistics, Seymour has punched above its weight for decades, becoming one of the most recognized hills in Canadian snowboarding. It all started with the Wood family. They acquired the resort...

WHISTLER BLACKCOMB | POW DAY

Date: January 20, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Whistler got some snow this week. A lot of snow. 157cms in the last week. These photos & video were shot together with very little planning. When it snows around Whistler, plans are made quickly. I wanted to ride the snow, but also wanted to get some photos; it’s rare to even try to shoot photos on pow days because it’s just too much damn fun. I was meeting with the usual suspects and knew a few fellow boarders were filming some pillows. I hit up the filmer Kyler and that was that. It...

THE COVER | ISSUE 9.4 | ANTO CHAMBERLAND

Date: January 19, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

“So, it started probably eight months before the winter. I was at the fire station having dinner with the boys, like we do. The TV is always playing in the background. There's a show in Quebec, where the main host visits small towns, does activities with the locals and stuff. It was the end of the show and he has this whole town behind him, he’s saying good-bye. And I saw this bridge in the background. So, I started to Google “bridge” with the name of the town. I managed to get more...

VINCE GRANDMAISON | BRUNERS 2 | INTERVIEW & VIDEO PART

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

When you think of a kid that went to a snowboard academy, you might have the mental image of somebody vigorously training for slopestyle stardom. Long hours spent with a coach, strenuous dieting and weight lifting may all be part of the process, and unlike a lot of street snowboarders, this lifestyle doesn't include smoking spliffs on the hill and crushing beers at night. Regardless of the stereotypes attached to each style of snowboarding, there are always exceptions. In this case, Vince...

9.4 ISSUE PREVIEW

All things must end. This last issue bookends our 9th volume preaching the good word of the board. Winter is here and we’re back to chasing the dream, the covers, and the stories of the future. Get your hands on a copy by visiting snowboard shops and newsstand. Anto Chamberland kills this issue. He hits the cover gapping a natural bridge feature he discovered by noticing it in the background of a TV show. [o] Andy Wright makes this photo a true story. A CONVERSATION WITH ANTO...

SAGE KOTSENBERG | BEST STORY EVER

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

“Terabithia Gap” Last season, while shooting for The Pepper Movie, we were in Utah filming on this super-classic springtime hip. As we are sessioning it, I see Bode (Merrill) start walking up and out of the scene. He always goes rogue for about 15 minutes. He comes down and says, “Boys… I think I found a crazy gap.”  So, I walk up there and check out what he’s looking at and I thought it was impossible. It was a jump over the ravine that we were sessioning the hip on, you would...

NIC ROY | BRUNERS 2 | INTERVIEW & VIDEO PART

Date: January 9, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features | video

Nic is one of the newer additions to The Bruners crew, and if you've seen any of his previous parts, it's obvious why we wanted to have him be part of the squad. When we were younger, Nic lived a long way from St-Bruno, so we didn't get the chance to grow up riding together, but we would always cross paths through the contest scene in Quebec. He was always pretty shy, so he let his riding do the talking. He has a creative spark that allows new ideas to constantly flow, and it inspires...

THE COVER | ISSUE 9.2 | DILLON OJO

Date: January 5, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

“Saw this spot on our first day in Germany, across the street from the McDonald’s we were having lunch at. The build was pretty mellow because the landing was already packed up due the snow plow. The annoying thing was trying to get snow to stay on top of the ledge to build a kicker. It took me about three or four tries to land my first one, and a few more to clean it up. The tricky part was landing switch and instantly sliding across a three-lane street. It was kind of like the early...

MARK SOLLORS | BROKEN

Date: January 3, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

As told to King Snow… I don't want this to come up weird but... I don't fall that much. But when I fall, I fall really bad. I wanna be 100 percent comfortable with trying something. I want to know exactly what's gonna happen, so I'm ready for all those moments. I think I'm a very calculated person—risk versus reward. And I knew that hooking my back edge on this 270 and going to the ground was a very real possibility. We were in the B.C. Interior—Kelowna. Jody Wachniak and Derek...

MANITOBA BOARDERS

Date: January 2, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

Words, Photos and Video by Rob Lemay    Manitoba isn’t a place that you think of for snowboarding. It’s flat and cold, not ideal. Regardless of those conditions, it has produced some of the top Canadian men and women to strap in: Andrew Geeves, Jake Kuzyk, Jody Wachniak, Derek Molinski, Kevin Griffin, Darrah Reid-Mclean to name a few. How did they overcome the odds you might ask? The harsh winters and flat land might just have played in their favour. Last spring, Derek Molinski, Nic...

WHERE YOU AT, SIMON CHAMBERLAIN?

Date: December 19, 2017 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

By William Fraser Like most teenagers boarding during the early 2000s, I thought Simon Chamberlain was the man. I remember the first time I saw his pro-model. I was 16 and with my mom at a skateshop filled with Grenade outerwear. The sales person was pushing this brand called Stepchild on us. He said it was a newer brand outta Whistler, and that if I liked basketball, I’d love Simon Chamberlain’s all-white, Air-Jordan pro-model. The sales person was right. I loved basketball and I loved...
