BRIN ALEXANDER | RIPPING INTERVIEW

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

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. When did your parents move to Whistler? I don’t know the actual year, but my parents were both patrollers on the mountain. My mom threw avalanche bombs, blowing shit up....

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...

NERDS | ROB PICARD & JOE MCADOO

Date: March 30, 2018 Author: Jesse Fox Categories: features

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...

ANTO CHAMBERLAND | BY CRAIG MCMORRIS

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

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

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

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...

You find room for all those stickers on your board? Uh huh. Yeah, I make room. Anyone paying you the big bucks yet? No, no one’s paying, but I get some really good stuff.

ROBIN VAN GYN | FEATURE INTERVIEW

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

[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...

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...
