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.

Canada Clinic time

I had an amazing time up in Canada supporting the crew up there from Burton on their "PK" tour.  Canadians call clinics "PK"s (Product Knowledge).   We had great turnout from employees at The Source, EasyRider, Unlimited, Coastal Riders, and Comor.   It was great to chat about the New Burton Product that these guys are starting to sell and help get them pumped on the upcoming season.  It was great to have Mark Sollors and Mikey Rencz come along on the Vancouver stops.  Thanks my Canadian Friends :-)
