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.

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.

Our Boy Jake Welch Tops TWS Exposure Meter!

Jake Welch Tops September Snow Exposure-Meter

After finishing the ‘13/14 season just out of the Exposure-Meter top ten, Jake Welch came screaming out of the gates with nearly 9k of coverage in September’s issues. Welch nearly doubled runner up Gigi Rüf’s September tally — his follow up to his win last season. The first round of mags saw some strong placements from new EM contenders including Jeremy Jones, who shot up 28 from last year’s finish, Torstein Horgmo, who launched 120 places, and Austen Sweetin, who gapped nine to close out September’s top five. Here’s to an amazing season.

Welcome to the Pro Team Jake Welch

Welcome to the Team Jake Welch

RIDE is incredibly proud to announce the addition of Jake Welch to the Pro Team.

It’s funny how a soft spoken young gentleman can also be the guy who steps up to the gnarliest spot everyone else is scared of. Jake Welch is a kind, well mannered type from Salt Lake who not only has payed dues in the past, but boasts a very promising future.

Check out Jake’s Team page

Jake stems from a large family in Sandy Utah where he started snowboarding at Brighton resort. Snowboarding became life as he went pro for other brands, putting together full video parts for their major film projects. After the ultimate bounce back from a series of life changing circumstances, Jake got back into the one thing that could make him happy, riding his snowboard.

This past winter, Jake was filming with longtime friend Pat Moore, and gathered enough footage to appear in Pat’s project “Mr. Plant” along with linking up with the Videograss crew to be featured in their new movie “Mayday”.

Welcome to the fam Jake! Keep your eye out for the RIDE snowboards team… They are about to bring the heat.
