The House Team & Friends at Buck Hill

It feels great to get out an ride with friends, especially at a resort like Buck Hill!  One thing we noticed right away about riding Buck’s park was the quarterpipes on the sides of all the jumps, and then we noticed how the have their own gravity – everyone is drawn toward them.

Featuring Riders:
Todd Kirby
Ryan Paul
Jordan Daniels
Matty Kirchgasler
Cole Linzmeyer

If you’re drawn towards riding like the crew you’ll want to check out all the Burton Snowboards we have in stock HERE.

Strange Brew | Strangers Welcome EP. 4

EP. 4 | Basic Boreal

To be fair, there’s nothing basic about Boreal.  Boreal sits west of Truckee on what’s know to most as the Donner Pass area.  The geographical area is anything but basic, learn from the short history lesson below:

The Donner Party was a group of American pioneer migrants who set out for California in a wagon train. Delayed by a series of mishaps, they spent the winter of 1846–47 snowbound in the Sierra Nevadas. Some of the migrants resorted to cannibalism to survive, eating those who had succumbed to starvation and sickness.

Historians have described the episode as one of the most spectacular tragedies in Californian history and in the record of western migration…and this is why Strange Brew has been know to kill it.

Traveling Circus in MN

House Riders Andy Parry and Garrett Russell, along with LINE Traveling Circus members Will Wesson and Shane McFalls, fled the western drought and headed to snowy Minnesnowta a few weeks ago to film for LINE Traveling Circus. Episode 7.3 “That’s Different” includes the remarkably weird and funky skiing of LTC and features MN signatures like hotdish, the Mall of America, and rails, rails, rails. I had the opportunity to chauffeur the crew around to Wild Mountain, Trollhaugen, and any/everywhere in the Twin Cities area. They could be the strangest group of skiers I have ever been around and I loved every moment…except for all the discussions about cats. There were a lot.
