DAWN OF THE VILLAGE | RECAP & GALLERY

Date: April 2, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: news

After watching everyone slaughter Snowboy and SRD’s Dawn of the Village for four days, I couldn’t help but think about this Ben Gavelda quote: “Snowboarding is in an age of surplus talent and limited compensation…” This quote could be perceived as negative, and in a lot of ways it is, but I also see it as positive. Snowboarders now seem less concerned about sponsorships and more concerned with having fun. We’re transitioning from a sport about scale to a sport about play and...

BAKED SALMON 2018 | RECAP & GALLERY

Date: March 20, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: news

Last Saturday Mt. Seymour hosted the third annual Baked Salmon Banked Slalom, and for the third year in a row the sun shown down, and the course was a mind-boggling feat of hand-built shaperry (shaping so good it’s close to wizardry). The amount of hours organizing, planning, and sculpting from a staggering number of contributing friends brings this very special event to fruition is surreal. All the usual suspects and some old familiar faces brought the reliable brouhaha we’ve come to...

The Sport Chek Air Nation Freestyle Nationals presented by Mazda and Burton went down last week (Mar. 5-12th) in Calgary, Alberta.

It was many of the rider’s first trip to the world-class training facility, and all agreed they would be back. Backed on to the Western Championships, it was a week for riders to gather and meet new friends and challenge themselves...

2018 US OPEN OF SNOWBOARDING

Date: March 5, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: news

It's different from any other snowboard event you've been to, but putting your finger on the one thing that makes it special is difficult. And it is... special. There’s an energy that exists at the US Open that’s like no other. Compare it to the X Games—the X is a TV show, produced for your living room, which is literally the best seat in the house. Don’t bother showing up live, pulling the curtain back will only disappoint. While the US Open was made to experience live. Like how your...

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

Saturday, February 3rd Mt. Seymour hosted the Afford to Board Rail Jam event that raised money and collected donated gear for the Youth Unlimited Charity. A huge success by any means, especially given that it was the first event that organizer Dan Rebstein has put together.
