We had the awesome opportunity to hook up with BCU ambassador Cam Fitzpatrick, and get out on the snow with snowboard legends Mark Carter, Hana Beaman, and some guy named Travis something-or-other. Super fun day in the Tetons, breaking trail for the first time of the season into one of their top-secret zones. It was obviously very cool to get to ride with these guys with such perfect snow conditions. But it was also pretty…

By | Thank You Craig Kelly | No Comments

There have been many amazing athletes that have come and gone in the rise of this “so-called sport” of snowboarding. Countless names who have pushed the bar higher and upped the ante with style, speed, amplitude, attitude, flow, and even the type of terrain each rider has chosen as his or her canvas. When you consider all of these categories, many riders stand out—from modern-day heroes like Nicolas Mueller, Pat Moore, and Travis Rice, to…

Tronkyin – a short film by Adam Brummond & Friends

By | Popular Posts, Tronkyin Short Movie | No Comments

The Inuit language has a very long list of words to describe many different versions and iterations of snow. (http://www.mendosa.com/snow.html) First of all, that’s just awesome. For a culture to revolve around snow so much that one word can’t suffice. There’s endless inspiration there, when you consider the many ways we can relate to the heavenly crystals that fall from the sky and bless our lives with a floating sensation. Tronkyin means “Last snow”, and…

‘Mixed Use for the Win’ by Brandon Tudizzle Cox

By | Mixed Use Tudizzle Freerider | No Comments

In this little story, Tudizzle recounts an experience he had last season when he and his group came upon a couple of human-powered adventurers. A little respect goes a long way! Check…
