Kyle Cremers won the Dick’s Ditch snowboard race this weekend at Jackson Hole Resort. He rode to victory on his trusty Never Summer built World Boards designed Mountainslayer. Chad his brother got 5th. I got 4th in 40+ on my Mountainslayer. Rob Kingwill, World Boards team pro rider for 21 years!!!, got 2nd in pro men. It was a fun and yet very challenging and long course full of jumps, drops and tabletops, with times in at around 2 minutes on average. Leg burner!!
We are down in Jackson Hole this week at Rob Kingwill’s Pow Wow. It is an invite only powder board test and gathering of many heavy hitters in the industry. Today was a great riding day as we milked pow up high off Pucker Face Figure 8′s and others. Chad and I rode Gentemstick boards and had a load of fun checking out their traditional powder shapes. They are well built Japanese designed boards with wood and clear top sheets. This is a photo of Kinger explaining one of his descents of “Once is enough” chute in the background
Nicolas has been riding Big Sky for the last few days. He is visiting along with the Nixon watches sales crew and athletes. On his way out of town he dropped by to check out the store. He has never been here though we were the exclusive Arcus USA distributor for 5 years, R.I.P. Anyway it was fun to have him around albeit for a short time. Pictured is Willy and Nicolas standing in front of a B & W shot of Nicolas buttering the pow!
Gigi Ruff is the rider of the year that is for certain. With that title from Snowboarder AND now from TWSnowboarding it’s clear. Gigi also got standout performance of the year for winning Supernatural. What more can be said than, “He is incredible.” SLASH by Gigi is his board company and he is intimately involved in all his designs. You can see the boards at the shop and of course next season we will have them as soon as they are available.
Check out this super creative movie short. I have hiked over a lot of this terrain and fished in some of these spots. Each spring we hike in a lot of the slot canyons in this whole zone. I truly have envisioned rolling on some of the landscape, skating in my mind. But I never actually took my board along as Clay does.
We have been a Steepwater and Arbor dealer over the years and can tell you this is a great match up. We are pleased to offer the Steepwater/Arbor freeride board here in store. Come and check it out. Thanks Steve and Bob for making this happen. If you want to go really fast you should check this one out.
