This week in Snowboarding...

Great to be home and riding in nearly every conceivable winter weather condition this week. Nitro park at carinthia has two jumps, two spines and about ten jibs set to keep every lap fun. We did laps in fog. We did laps in rain which was at times light and then heavy. We did laps in falling snow of course and today we lapped it up on very firm snow that sounded almost like ice. My favorite is actually the hard stuff this week.
 We are down for whatever it takes. Because that's the way Eric Beauchemin always rolled and EB- simply took the win in the DEW TOUR Street contest this week.

Also our SMS West crew in Summit County Colorado began the first "team" infiltration of The Rocky Mountain Series in impressive fashion with Mav Dog Shaw taking the HP win followed by Xander Raith in second for 14-15 Boys. Julia Marino won for the girls and Noelle Edwards took fourth in her bracket. Congrats and keep up the good work riders!

The DEVO team has been at Copper for about two weeks. I have been so stoked to ride and coach these up and coming rippers. While spending time with these energy filled maniacs, I have noticed each one has their own specific style. I have put together some shots that give a sence of what I have been witnessing on a daily. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do !

Elite Crew Photo Grabs

Feast your eyes upon the sunny oasis that is Summit County. Sunscreen and shades are a must, as is a light ninja mask. The featured hotspots are Breck and Keystone. If you are a fan of this blog you will know the identities of the pictured riders by their styles alone. Challenge yourselves to name them all! Biba arrived a bit late for this blog, but has some tricks up her sleeves tomorrow. Short sleeves if the forecast is correct!

The Pipe Is Super and the Kids Are Kryptonite!

Peter D. Method, Proper. Study it.
 Yesterday am here at Copper Mtn. The pipe building crew unleashed their sculpture. Under the pressure of a reported 20 National Teams plus another 10 groups like ourselves these guys were welding broken equipment and overcoming numerous mechanical challenges to get this  beast unveiled. Lack of natural snow has been no issue here and are training has been great.
Brandon Bischoff's hometown hero and SMS superstar Louis Vito is looking forward to seeing BB ride and Louie is looking good already in the season. Alum Ellery Hollingsworth is also back in the allstar lineup along with Jenn Cohen and Joe Mensch who are all repping SMS alumni skills In Full! It's a great privilege to be training in such great facilities alongside some of  the best riders in Snowboarding and our Athletes are taking full advantage.
