We recently took a trip down to Colorado, not only for the SIA Tradeshow, but to get some snowboarding in as well. Since our winter has been so rough here in Washington State, it sure was nice to extend our stay and see how conditions were in the Rockies. Sure enough, the Rockies did not disappoint! First, we had to take care of some business in Denver for a few days.
Before heading back home we linked up with our friends at Weston Snowboards for a sweet day of cat boarding out at Vail Pass! Our buddy and talented photographer Brandon Huttenlocher met up with us as well to ride pow and take photos in the snow all day long. All photos below we’re shot by Brandon himself.
Everybody was stoked and ready to rip! Snow was falling all day long and avalanche conditions were on the rise. We made the decision to play it safe and kept things relatively low angle the entire day. The swallow tail board they call the “Japow” was a favorite for the conditions we had. Another board shape we really liked was the “Backwoods” which is more of a fish shape. Both board shapes we’re a blast to ride in the deep stuff!
Huge thank you to Barry, Mason, Leo, Mark, and Joe from Weston Snowboards showing us a good time out in Colorado! A big thank you as well to Brandon for providing us with these awesome photos!
