It's great to be back with the gang at work doing what they do best: snowboarding. It's our third morning of the session and the forecast is pretty gray and damp but that didn't stop us yesterday from having a great day.
SMS riders Karen Kobayashi, Marian Lobell, Josh Cohen, Mason Geils, Scott Sweitzer, Xander Raith, Owen Barth want to welcome New Team riders Noelle Edwards, Charlie Burt, Mike Boylan and Julia Marino. We are also joined by Charlie's Brother Harry Burt, Xander'd Bro Benji and SMS freerider Gideon Le Gros. We enjoyed a nice and sunny day one lapping the top to bottom options to get used to riding and yesterday put in a more serious morning of hiking the Public Pipe and saw some great push in the progression as the snow was soft and forgiving to invite flips and spins all around. In the afternoon we did our public park laps as the top chair was having issues and we did not need to risk spending extra time on it!

Mt. Hood with a ton of snow this summer. Also the Project Gold private high speed quad and start of the sbx course for the camp. What an amazing setup and great camp. All the SMS athletes rode hard, improved their technique and trained with US Team athletes.

Strong Work. The two who did not excel beyond their previous best were one off their november scores. November testing is done after three full months of serious training so this has been a productive growth period in explosive strength endurance in a month and a half...very happy for you guys.
