Trip to Mammoth with Retailers from the MidWest / East Coast

It was really fun bringing some Retailers out to Mammoth Mountain that haven't ever been there.  I'm pretty used to that place and have been riding there for over 25 years.  It was really cool seeing how much fun they were having even thought the snow wasn't to good.  I love spreading the West Coast love :-)

Snow in San Diego

We had some snow where I live in San Diego county.  I've never really been home when it snowed like this, so it was super fun to take my Family up to the Local hills near my house and go Sledding with Friends.  It was weird driving around with White stuff on the Ground.  Hope this happens again this year.

Tailgate demos,

I've been traveling around with some new 2016 Hardgoods from Burton, and getting some retailers
out on the snow and having a good time.  The Snow has been great at almost every spot i've been to and 2015 is shaping up to be a great winter I think.

trip to Vermont for the Burton Sales Meeting 2016

Great trip to Vermont for the Burton 2016 Sales Meeting.  Product groups kicked but and everything is looking on point and tight.  Stowe was kind enough to open the lifts for us for the day and we got to shred.  Burton people were stoked to have the mountain to themselves with no Skiers :-)  Looking forward to a great winter.

On Snow at loveland pass

First on snow demo of the year.  It was snowing and super cold at Loveland pass this year but i was really excited to get back on the snow.  Ben Ferguson was with me and i was so impressed with how that kid can ride and carve on a snowboard.  It makes me very happy to see a young kid at the age of 19 riding like that and carving all over the place.

Clinic time

Been Traveling around North America supporting the Burton Reps with their Product Clinics.   Been great talking about the new Burton Hardgoods that are in their Stores.  But,  i'd have to say i'm getting tired of just talking about riding.  I want to buckle in and get after it instead of just talking about it.  Hopefully the White Stuff starts falling soon :-)

Bear Mt , Hotdogs and Handrails

Bear Mt steps up their game every year for the best snowboard park in the world.  Each year they start out by doing the Hotdogs and Handrails event.  Thousands of people show up to get amped to ride.  Some of the top jibbers in the game show up to throw down.  I had the pleasure of being one of the judges for event.  It is pretty hard with all the ripping going on,  but Johnny O'conner was for sure the standout because he had great control and was hitting all the features with progression.  Winter is almost here.
