DC PBJ Snowboard with Jeremy Matherly

Jeremy Matherly of US Outdoor helps paint the picture of the DC PBJ Snowboard which is a great snowboard for Mt. Hood, this time of year.

For skiers and snowboarders, Mt. Hood is a special place that exploits our lust for snow long after all other resorts have arrested their lift operations. Government Camp hosts adventurers of all sorts while High Cascade and Windell’s set up shop to run summer ski and snowboard camps at Timberline. There are pro skiers and snowboarders everywhere, groms a plenty, and of course terrain parks. This is where the DC PBJ Snowboard comes in…

… and yes, kittens, the grotesque kittens created by DC designers. Magical, aren’t they? Jeremy sure thinks so.

2012-2013 K2 Digital Catalog Available

Would you like to see into the future of snowboarding? Most of us will say yes to this question. Unfortunately the human brain has yet to develop foresight of that magnitude. Fortunately, the future exists within different parallels and if you sign up for the K2 Snowboarding Digital Newsletter here, K2 will send you a digital catalog of the new 2012-2013 product line.

On what parallel does this future foresight exist, you ask? Well, seeing as the folks at K2 have only presented this catalog to shop buyers that place the order for your local snowboard shop, you as a K2 Snowboarding Digital Newsletter recipient get a first look into what products might appear on the shelves before they actually end up… on the shelves. KAZAAAM! It is not exactly telepathy but hey, it’s a start.

Whatever happened to the “Slam Section”? The three minute edit in past videos which gave an honest account on the brutality that links itself to snowboarding, skateboarding, and skiing (along with every other extreme sport) has almost entirely disappeared from videos all together. Sure they’re hard to watch, gruesome, and often times disheartening, but nonetheless… instructive? Yeah, I said it, instructive. Confidence is everything, don’t get me wrong, but watch this slam section from Mack Dawg Production’s Technical Difficulties video before you decide to bit off more than you can chew. It’s old, but it’s one of the last good slam sections. Enjoy!

Backcountry Love with Brian Iguchi and Friends

Well, if there were ever a way to show friends and strangers you truly care about them on Valentine’s Day, it’s teaching them the basics of backcountry awareness! So the caring hearts of Brian Iguchi and friends stopped by US Outdoor to give patrons a glimpse into the beautiful backcountry and the dangers that lay unseen to an untrained eye. Through knowledge and first hand experience, Brian Iguchi and friends spoke about warning signs, weather conditions, and even scratched the surface of mathematics. The experience is enough to make skiers and snowboarders want to look even further into the world of backcountry skiing and snowboarding; beacons, shovels, and probes are necessary, but the ability to spot danger before it’s too late will save your life. Remember: luck favors the prepared! Brian Iguchi, Volcom, and US Outdoor hope all who are backcountry bound will take the time to learn, BACK COUNTRY AWARENESS. Happy trails!
