VISITORS Have Arrived

 

Visitors Have Arrived Video Premiere Audience at SIA

VISITORS Have Arrived

In front of a packed crowd at the Snowsports Industries of America annual Snow Show, Videograss premiered it’s latest film: VISITORS. With killer footage from some of the best riders in the world, we have a personal connection to this particular video.

The flick features RIDE team athletes Jake Welch and Spencer Schubert,who both put down amazing parts. And we were stoked for the world premiere so we decided to throw a little party…

VISITORS have arrived, and we packed only the essentials.

When planning a premiere party, pack light and only bring the necessities.

VISITORS is Just the Beginning

Our meet-up in Denver was only the beginning for the guys. With VISITORS complete, Welch and Schubert are now embarking on a two-month long tour around the US, making stops at resorts, local shops and neighborhood cabarets. If you’re going to be out this season, the chances are good that they’ll end up in the lift line with you sooner or later.

Wanna see where they’re going to be next? Or just wanna get your stalk on? Follow these guys on Instagram to stay in the loop: @jakewelch @shoeburt

Both on the snow…

VISITORS have arrived in Salt Lake.

When visiting Salt Lake AND there’s snow, the Rail Gardens is a must. Spencer setting up the Lunch Ramp for a quick session.

And off the snow…

Visitors have arrived at the hotel for a quick bounce.

Spencer is super picky about his hotel beds when on tour.

 

Visitors have arrived and they want mimosas.

Season Is Near – Instagram Photo Contest

Ride Instagram Photo Contest - Early Season

 

Announcing a new early season Instagram photo contest from your friends at Ride Snowboards. Now we all know the season is near but it’s not here yet. It’s 80 degrees in Seattle as I write this on September 17th! This is not normal. I like a late summer as much as the next guy, but it’s time for cold mornings and snow on the foothills, time for Fall to make an appearance!

To coax the season out of hiding, we’re going to give away a hat or beanie to the best snowboard related photo taken this season. Extra credit for on snow, tagged #SEASONISNEAR on Instagram every week. The contest ends when Mt Baker opens. Overall photo winner will win a 2013 Machete 155! No we don’t know when that is either but that means it’s on in the Pacific Northwest and that’s the only date that matters. Contest is for Northern Hemisphere only…
