Just like with our campers… all we ask is that they tried. However, it may have only been Sam Sosnowski – filmer & editor of this sick snowboard movie – who knew that a little bit of effort could produce such incredible results.
I guess it isn’t much of a surprise that this turned out so radical, when you’ve got this all-star line up of snowboarders: Craig McMorris, Judd Henkes, Mark McMorris, Sebbe De Buck, Anto Chamberlain, Mark Sollors, Mikey Renzc, Rusty Ockenden, Jody Wachniak, Chris Rasman, Matt Belzile, and Jordan Morse.
This movie is a tasty combination of British Columbia backcountry and gnarly street clips, and it proves that these homies can stomp huge moves anywhere. Enjoy!
If you’re a young snowboarder that wants to be able to do what you are seeing in this movie one day… then there is no better place to start then Evolve Freestyle Snow Camps. We teach you all of the important fundamentals for tricks of any kind, and MSLM’s world-class terrain parks are the perfect place to learn!
Mount St. Louis-Moonstone Opens Friday, November 23
Looks like Christmas came early this year for all you gnarly shred-heads!
The snowmaking team at Mount St. Louis-Moonstone has been making great use of the $1.5 Million of new equipment that they purchased this off-season. They have been running the machines for over 48 hours straight, and they were gifted with some bonus snow squalls too that helped out big time. The grooming team has been right on their heels making sure that any snow on the hill is in great condition for you to ride as of this weekend.
Starting this Friday, November 23, the following will be open at MSLM:
4/11 chairlifts (the Summit 6 Express, the Louis Express, the Sundance Quad and the Magic Carpet)
2/4 terrain parks
The snow conditions this weekend are sure to be incredible – with a staggering 30-50cm base on all runs to kick off the 2018/19 season. With lift tickets that are only $40 for anyone ages 6+, what else would you rather be doing this weekend?!
Vans “Listen to the Eyes” Full Movie – Mary Rand, Leanne Pelosi, and Hana Beaman
Earlier this week was the official world premiere for “Listen to the Eyes” – the first women’s snowboarding movie released by Vans. They enlisted the help of legendary snowboard filmmaker Jake Price for this project that took place in the backcountry of the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. The movie features riders from Vans global and Canadian snow teams Hana Beaman, Mary Rand, and Leanne Pelosi.
Director Jake Price was actively searching to showcase the essence of the Vans women’s snow team and he wanted to illustrate their creative expression both on and off the snow. The entire movie was shot on Kodak 16mm film, and the original soundtrack was scored by Vans Europe surf team rider Lee Ann Curren – two elements that were key in achieving their stylistic goals for the film. This movie does a wonderful job of showcasing Hana, Mary, and Leanne’s backcountry prowess in a uniquely artistic manner.
Vans hosted the world premiere for the movie at the House of Machines in Downtown L.A. Along with the screening, there was an art installation from legendary snowboard artist, Schoph, a Dillon Ojo tribute photography show, and performances by Lee Ann Curren and LA Witch. Although those in attendance got the pleasure of viewing the entire film, the rest of us are limited a fantastic 15-minute trailer. We will certainly be keeping our eyes peeled for the release of the full length movie so that we can let you know when it has arrived.
