Everyone loves their jeans. Some people love them so much, they actually try to snowboard with them on. They also pretend they’re warm and comfortable on the chairlift, when the obvious signs of hypothermia are setting in. 686 has a solution – warm, waterproof snowpants that look just like jeans!
“Ho fukkah you likkah grind?” That’s Hawaiian pidgen for “Excuse me sir, do you want to eat?” I don’t know where I’m going with that … anywhoo … CandyGrind stickers have been plastered all over Breckenridge for the past few years. Now, they have a nice selection of gloves & apparel to make your hands happy. CandyGrind … it’s like Hawaiian for eat candy!
Applenuts has left Flip skateboards and is now riding for Element. His new shape is probably exactly the same as his Flip shape … so if you’re sick of his Flip graphic … now you can get a new one from Element.
Shaun White is back on your television and this time you can control him! Shaun’s new game is skateboard focused … not that snowboard business he does on the side … or does he skateboard on the side?
Who the hell uses trail maps? Tourists. Who likes tourists in a ski town? For sure not the locals. You don’t want to be “that guy” unfolding a giant map in the lift line saying “Hey honey, should we take Devils crotch down to Sodomizer over to Savage Heat?” All the while, holding up the line because you’re staring at a ski area map from another resort you mistakenly grabbed from your hotels’ front desk. Good God - NO. That’s where this app comes in, you can access all the necessary info right on the lift from your cell phone.
This thing is a total tool … much like “The Situation” on The Jersey Shore. Even if you don’t know how to snowboard or think it’s stupid, this little handy-dandy tool will come in very handy in your everyday “situations.” See what I did right there?
You may remember Louie from events such as the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games or Dancing With The Stars. With one of the most blue collar names in the history of snowboarding, Louie needs a few things when hiking the pipe on the way to double cork glory.

This is the best snowboarding movie I’ve seen this year. I’ve actually only seen one … so this may not be the most trustworthy review. Gigi’s movie is fantastic – lots of powder & creative riding. I approve this movie’s message.
Snowcats are great for several reasons. One of which is not putting your life in the hands of some ex-Vietnam vet, who’s had way to much coffee and is now controlling a giant, mechanical dragonfly called a Bell 212 during a whiteout snowstorm. With a cat, you’re on the ground and the only danger you face is someone with bad gas. Island Lake is located up near Fernie, BC. You know … where they filmed the movie Roxanne with Steve Martin and Out Cold with Todd Richards. Island Lake Lodge is a world-class destination for deep powder snow lovers. With tons of terrain and food that will put you in a blissful coma every night, this Lodge should be on your bucket list of snowboard destinations. Not to mention .. you don’t need to stress-out flying around in snowstorm piloted by a guy best described as juggling, while hoola-hooping, while standing on a basketball.
Danny Kass got second at the Olympics twice. Always the bridesmaid but never the bride for Danny Kass. Nike felt bad for him and decided to give him his own boot so that he could drown his sorrows in Nike’s cash. He can now cry himself to sleep on a gigantic pillow stuffed with swoosh cash.
