Last week’s Am Throwdown with Snowboard Mag was a huge success, and The House was lucky enough to be a part of all of the action.
The teams of finalists, who were chosen by public voting, had five days of sunshine and good snow to explore Copper and shoot a 1:30 second video. Edits had to be cut and turned in by midnight Friday night so the crews made the most of the days and nights trying to “Get the Shot”.
As Snowboard Magazine Editor Jon Glass put it, “We wanted the guys to get creative, explore the mountain and not feel confined to just one area of the mountain. The contest had a loose format. We pretty much let the guys run free for the week.”

Snowboard Magazine has a great recap of the event here. Stay tuned as the final edits should be dropping next week as well as the announcement of the winning team and video who will walk away with 5G’s.

House Boardshop Team Riders Gabi Viteri and Bev V. stopped by the Snowboard Magazine Am Throwdown yesterday to say hello to The House Boardshop crew and check out the scene. Day two of the event was wrapping up and the girls hung out to grab some apres sun on the deck at Copper Mountain.
Gabi brought along her number one man, a freshly groomed Darby the dog, as well as her friend and fellow Burton teammate Zak Hale.
Day three of the event is upon us and all of the videographer/rider duo’s were expecting a snowy day but woke up to yet another bluebird day. Tonight the teams will meet up after sunset for a night session that will be the only time all of the teams ride and film together on the same feature. Copper’s park crew just finished setting up the feature for tonights session and it’s looking pretty radical.
Each year our friends over at Snowboarder Magazine host the ultimate girly get-together and invite all of the best female riders from around the world to take part in Women’s Superpark, a spin-off of the widely acclaimed “Superpark” event the magazine put together years ago that boasts the biggest park features and the best riders. The riders all get a chance at one-upping each other by making the most of the unique features in hopes to get a shot in the annual feature that the magazine runs covering the get together. It is an elite honor to be one of the riders that is invited to these events, male and female.
This year Keystone Mountain, Colorado was the host resort for Women’s Superpark and House Boardshop team riders Bev V. and Gabi Viteri were both in attendance. Aside from the feature that will run come next winter, Snowboarder Magazine posted daily updates photo and video updates with sneak peaks at the features and the girls throwing down. Check out all the action here or by clicking on the photo below of our own Ms. Viteri gapping over a massive up-down-flat rail.
