August Amp Up: Summer Skiboarding

Who’s up for some summer skiboarding? Last October Jack Schmid and company headed to Buck Hill Ski & Snowboard Area to test out their new summer set up.

Jack and the Electric Snail crew will be returning to Buck Hill this Sunday, August 27. If you’re in the Twin Cities area stop by and join them!

August Amp Up: Talon Returns

August is here and it’s time to get amped up for the coming season! We’ll be sharing some of our favorite edits from the past season until the snow starts to fly.

Our first video comes from Talon Sei. Talon had taken a hiatus from skiboarding for a while but is back and sharing tons of great footage. Here’s an edit from his first time back on the snow:

If you haven’t seen what Talon has been up to in a while, be sure to check him out on YouTube!

Westfest 2016: Awesome Terrain and Excellent People


Westfest 2016 was a ton of fun. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s what you missed. Try to join us next year!

Day 1: Alta
Some fresh snow would have gone a long way here. Conditions were variable from thin coverage to crunchy to nice and powdery.

Day 2: Solitude
Conditions were awesome. It kept snowing throughout the day, resulting in endless powder stashes all over the mountain.

Day 3: Brighton
Another day with excellent conditions. The trees at Brighton were a ton of fun. We were able to find untouched snow all day long.

Day 4: Snowbird
The forecast was cold and windy, but that didn’t stop us. We took the tram to the top and got some awesome first runs in deep, bottomless powder. After that, the wind took over and we cut the day short.

Overall, when the conditions were good, they were amazing. Even when they weren’t ideal, we had a blast. It’s easy to see why they say Utah has the greatest snow on Earth. We had a great group and I can’t wait to get back!
