Side Hit Social at Boreal

As you saw in a post awhile back the Side Hit Social at Boreal Mountain was a ton of fun.  From seeing pros riding next to weekend warriors it was definitely an amazing event.  Here is a quick video we made just to give the flavor of the experience with a little bit of a […]

Closing Day Pow!

Only thirty hours ago I was standing in an over grown city in the tropics with cars honking incessantly, congestion, pollution and filth. Every breath was difficult…the air pollution was visible. Luckily, I awoke from my nightmare. Through the loud speakers on the plane the captain can be heard saying, “We are making our final […]


After the Spring Equinox, it’s only a matter of time. It’s the time of year when many begin the transition. As resorts across North America wrap up their season, skis and snowboards are put on the rack and exchanged for paddleboards and mountain bikes…but I say, “Not so fast!” It isn’t over until the fat […]

Tune Up

Spring…it’s 60 degrees out. The sun is shining and it’s t-shirt weather. Turn after turn comes smoothly and then all of a sudden there is a sudden pull like gremlins just came out of the snow and tried to tackle you. Bummer, the day is shot right? Well, it doesn’t have to be. A lot […]

Summer Snowboard Prep

It’s so hard to say goodbye (Update/ **Repost**) So, it’s coming to the time of year every skier or snowboarder dreads…the end of the season. Closing days at a lot of resorts have come and went. Backcountry stashes still remain, but are getting thinner and thinner. I know some of us are still hanging on […]

Send It

There are so many slang terms these days. If you ski or snowboard I’m sure you’ve heard this one. Generally, it goes something like this. Before one busts a gnarly trick or makes a bad decision you hear your buddy go, “Send It Bro!” Never heard the term? The Urban Dictionary says this term means […]

Side Hit Social – A Community Event

When we first heard about Airblaster’s Side Hit Social at Boreal, we only had a vague idea of what to expect. We knew since Boreal is the “King of Freestyle,” we were in for some sick features and top notch riding, but was it a typical competition with judges and scoring? There was only one […]

What to do, what to do?

There are ups and downs living in a mountain town. No, not relating to the happiness factor so don’t get me wrong.  Every day living in Tahoe is better than the last.  I’m speaking about the entertainment!  Right now we just so happen to be starting one of the best spring skiing seasons in the last […]
