For their final day in Silverton, the girls took it to the streets for some urban shredding. The snow was coming down heavy and the tow-ins were tough, but with some solid stunt driving and the help of a back hoe, we made it happen. Hana found a little ledge to hit and Gabi built a big gap jump, and both girls got some shots for Hana’s “P.S.” Webisode series. Hanging out in Silverton is kinda like going back in time, and it was nice to step off the mountain and rally around town in the sanctity of a snowstorm. Thanks to Hana, Gabi, Ben, and Meg for their hard work all week and check back for the edit in a couple weeks.
Last week I spent in Mayrhofen for the Vans Wangle Tangle. I had a blast catching up with friends and the Vans crew. It was so hot over there! T-shit shred all round, first day though powder turns! rest of the week was blue bird skies and park laps.
Right now I am in Biarritz, and am just getting in the first surf of the year!
It’s only the second week of the new year, but Vans team rider Cheryl Maas is having a great one already. Congrats to Cheryl for being named Snowboarder Magazine’s Women’s Rider of the Year! OK, so who do I talk to to get that bobblehead?
