|Snowboarder Superpark 15 - Mt Bachelor |
"Wildcard has been flying the flag for the Northwest scene for a few seasons now. As the evolution of Soundstrait Productions and Funner Films, Wildcard has created a cult following among shred film viewers looking for top-level production values to match the talent onscreen. The skits in their latest release, The Saturday Night Ride, are some of the best ever to appear in a snowboard movie. For their Superpark® 15 Video Showdown submission, Wildcard focused on the action with original angles of some of the most talked about tricks of the week including Scott Blum's Andrecht and Scott Vine's one-foot 720. Longtime Wildcard player Pat McCarthy throws a heave-ho and adds some narrative to the package while riders like Seth Hill, Stefan Krumm, and Joe Mango make their mark at Mt. Bachelor. Witness LNP land his first McTwist ever.

|Banked Slalom comes to East Coast: Ross Powers Wins it at Sugarloaf |
Seth Wescott finishes third in inaugural event and Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers wins first ever Sugarloaf Banked Slalom
Olympic Gold Medalist Ross Powers charged to victory in the first ever Sugarloaf Banked Slalom on March 19, 2011 in Carrabasset Valley, Maine, topping a field of 141 riders, including two-time Olympic champion Seth Wescott. Powers, a 2002 Olympic gold medal winner from Okemo, VT, finished the race in 1 minute, 18.36 second, just under five seconds ahead of the second-place finisher, 36 year-old Kevin McMahon of Stratton, VT, who posted a time of 1.23.32. Wescott, who lives at Sugarloaf and helped to organize the event and build the course, finished the race in third place with a time of 1.24.02.
The Sugarloaf Banked Slalom is based on the model of the Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom, and is a snowboard-only, open registration event, which allows snowboarders young and old to compete against snowboarding legends on a winding course of banked turns down Sugarloaf’s storied terrain. “The banked slalom is something that we’ve thought would be a great fit for Sugarloaf for a long time,” Wescott said. “The Mt Baker Legendary Banked Slalom is a truly unique event, and brings snowboarding back to its roots. The race is a perfect fit for Sugarloaf, and it was an incredible experience to be able to race in a banked slalom here at my home mountain.”
The race features five different age categories for both men and women, with prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in each category. The age categories are 14-and-under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, and 40 plus. Registration will be capped at 100 riders. The Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom is widely considered to be the first organized snowboard competition, and it eventually gave birth to the sport of snowboardcross. Wescott has won the only two Olympic gold medals ever awarded in snowboardcross.
The event was sponsored by K2 Snowboards, Bern Helmets, Bolle, and Team Eight Snowboards.
|Mountain Creek, What's Happening? Saturday, Sunday Late February 2011|
Spend 3 minutes at Mountain Creek with us and discover the secret halfpipe! Construction on the new base lodge for the Vernon Main base begins in March 2011. Let's ride the Terrain Park at South after dark, and find the runs you can have all to yourself. You can squeeze five solid hours of riding in without getting up early, missing work, or staying out late! After riding we hit the Vernon Diner and Pancake House, down past the South base in Mcafee for chicken marsala, a huge portion. We skip the fried oreos dessert. There's snow tubing at Mountain Creek too. Video by Lauren Traub Teton exclusive for SnowboardSecrets.TV
|Killington - What's New at Killington, Jan. 2011 |
The Superpipe at Bear Mountain, Killington, VT is being built before our eyes. Yesterday it wasn't even a halfpipe, just a little pile of snow. Today on January 2, 2011 the right wall is steep and taking shape.
Meanwhile, TWO new coffee places opened 3 weeks ago. One is the Vista View Deck, trailside on Great Eastern, and the other is Liquid Art on the Killington Road. We predict that both will be big winners!
