The RIDE Team Goes BERZERKER At Superpark

The RIDE Team Goes BERZERKER at Superpark

Now legally old enough to buy beer, Superpark turns 21 this year and the hits were just as heavy as a typical 21st birthday. Presented by Snowboarder Magazine, Superpark 21 was the biggest it’s ever been and the RIDE team destroyed every inch of snow, metal and wood for the entire event.

The Scene

After a record-breaking snowfall season, spring has finally arrived in the High Sierras of central California; and the energy was high as top riders from around the world descended on Mammoth Mountain. The features were massive and so were the expectations on the team as they set up to step up.

Berzerker at Superpark

From Yuki Kadono nearly setting the new record for airtime on a hip and Reid Smith sending the massive Loon Mountain-built wedge to Brandon Davis crushing every piece of transition in his path and young Keegan Hosefros tapping, bonking and tweaking his way across the mountain, RIDE dropped the hammer. Scroll down for some of the best shots we captured.

The 2017 RIDE Shop Trip

RIDE Shop Trip

By Brandon Pendergast | Assistant Sales Manager, RIDE Snowboards

This journey starts with a good crew and ends with killer views and LOTS of fresh POW!!! In February 2017, RIDE Snowboards took ten lucky shop riders to Monarch Mountain CAT Operation in beautiful Colorado for a private shred session. And it was a RIDE shop trip to remember.

The Meetup

The crew arrived into Denver over two days, from all across the United States. From New Jersey to Arizona, the gang was ready to get down to business. So upon arrival, we piled them  into a van and shipped them up into the mountains.

RIDE Shop Trip: Day One

For the first day of riding on Wednesday, we were joined by Kody Reeves from Clark’s Snow Sports (California), Kenny Good from Tahoe Sports Hub (California), Alex Johnson from Aspen Ski and Board (Ohio), Jared Williams from Colorado Ski and Golf (Colorado), Ellen Kaufman from Boulder Ski Deals (Colorado) and Nick Schuvieller from The House (Minnesota).

The crew on the first day. Stoked for steep and deep!

And what perfect day we had! We lucked out and got out of the CAT onto a foot of new snow. And the light wind delivered continuous refills all day. Heading out at the crack of dawn, everyone got fresh tracks and there were lots of high-fives. In fact, everyone was having so much fun that we rode hard until after 3pm.

RIDE Shop Trip: Day Two

On the second day, the skies cleared and the second group of arrivals started the day with some resort laps at Salida.

The Thursday crew included Andrew Pettis from Erik’s Bike Shop (Minnesota), Mark Roberto from The Ski Barn (New Jersey), Carl Rideout from SKI PRO (Arizona), Trevor Toth from Summit Sports (Wisconsin) and the legendary Bernie Ba from PowderTools (Colorado).

Day 2 Crew at the top of No Name Bowl.

Our three local guides took us out to No Name Bowl for BIGGG POW turns and some super DOG tree laps–which was a real treat at 11,000 feet! The whole crew showed up and represented, slashing carves all day. This day defined true backcountry snowboarding: big bowls and deep tree POW.

Until Next Season

RIDE couldn’t do what we do without the support of our local shops, and this was just a small way of saying thank you to them for all their hard work this season. Also, a huge thanks to the regional sales reps who came out and Monarch Mountain CAT Operations for the expertise some of the best lines of the season! Until next year.

Droppin!

Big shout-out to Monarch Cat Skiing for a great shred!

A Wild RIDE to the Baker Banked

A WILD RIDE to Baker Banked

The RIDE team left cell service and headed into the North Cascades to participate in the oldest running snowboard event in America: the Legendary Banked Slalom.

It Really Is Legendary

Also known as the greatest one-and-a-half-minute leg work out in the world, LBS takes place in Mt. Baker’s historic natural halfpipe and is arguably the most prestigious snowboard race in the world. The weekend-long event attracts snowboardings top dogs–which is the reason we threw Jake Blauvelt, Hana Beaman and Jake Welch into the mix to see just how fast they could go.

Mt. Baker is Unforgiving

The Cascades are unpredictable and weather was not on the sides of the racers as near whiteout conditions ripped through the course during both qualifying days. High winds toppled old-growth trees, blocking roads and knocking out power for much of the area. Basically, Mother Nature was not having it.

However, race times came in and the boys made Sunday finals. When the storm broke, blue skies descended on the course and it was fast as heck. Winning gold isn’t really our style, so no storybook ending here but as you can tell by the photos, Welch, Hana and Blauvelt looked damn good doing it.

The Legendary Banked Slalom

Held annually since 1985, LBS is regarded as the predecessor to the boardercross event and has been won by some of the biggest names in the history of snowboarding. The winner receives a Duct Tape trophy and an embroidered Carhartt jacket.

We’ll be partying out there again next year so sign up to receive event updates and we’ll see you there.
