Over Six Feet of New Snow at Mammoth and it’s Still Dumping

Weather News: Storm at Mammoth Mountain

Mammoth’s season is off and running and Mother Nature is blessing the California resort with a sweet, deep storm.

It started dumping at Mammoth Mountain on Wednesday and the storm shows no signs of slowing.

The resort is claiming that there is currently six feet of fresh snow at the summit, over a two and half  feet at the Main Lodge, and more snow is in the forecast.

According to reports, flakes continue to fall, an another 18″ is excepted by the time the storm ceases.

All of this snow will allow Mammoth to open from top-to-bottom, once crews are able to safely open the terrain. Our friends at Mammoth say that is likely to happen by this weekend.

Storm Highlights:
-2.5 feet of fresh snow at Mammoth
-Up to 4 feet by the time the storm is done
-More lifts and trails will open for the weekend, with top-to-bottom skiing & riding a good possibility
-Check CalTrans for up-to-date road conditions before travel in the mountains

Mammoth opened last week, and all this new snow is definitely welcomed and necessary for a deep base, and to boost top to bottom conditions.

Torstein Horgmo Announces Retirement from Competitive Snowboarding, Including 2018 Winter Olympics

Torstein Horgmo officially announced his departure from competitive snowboarding in his latest video blog. Answering questions posed during a Q & A on Facebook for his fans, Torstein addresses his pro career by saying, “I guess this is announcement time. I am officially not competing anymore. I am done with the medal chase, I am only focusing on filming.” He goes on to list his reasons for the change in directory, which revolve around getting back to the real reason he became obsessed with snowboarding in the first place—video parts. While we are bummed that we won’t get to watch him make contests more exciting with his riding, the news is not shocking.  Torstein is no stranger to the video part. Just watch last year’s Stronger  or any number of movies like Horgasm, A Love Story, Shredbots: The Movie, DC Mountain Lab 1.5., and we guarantee you will be just as stoked on this news as we are. Keep on the lookout for his next project, with no distractions or commitments from the competition circuit, it might just be his best part yet!

U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team Uniforms Unveiled for PyeongChang Games 2018

Here’s what the U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team will wear

With the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, less than 100 days away, the official uniform for the U.S. Snowboard Team has been released. Burton Snowboards, who has been in charge of designing and manufacturing the Olympic Snowboard Team uniforms for the past four Olympics, released their latest uniform which has a U.S. space-inspired vibe.

From the unveiling event of the USA uniforms for the 2018 Winter Olympic Snowboarding Team.

“This is the fourth Olympic uniform that Burton and myself have had the distinct pleasure of working on,” says Greg Dacyshyn, Head Designer of Burton’s Olympic uniform program.

“Like the previous three which had a retro inspired influence, the 2018 theme is also a heavy nod to Americana, because its main influence is the iconic suits of the United States’ leading space exploration program. I have always loved the astronauts’ suits, because not only do they have such a cool and amazing aesthetic, they also were designed to function under the most extreme conditions, so this gave us an incredible platform to push the innovation and technology of the garments as well. My hope is that these pieces help the athletes go where no rider has gone before.”

Take a quick stroll down memory lane with the past 2014 and 2010 uniforms below, and the full press release from Burton on their choice for the design of the 2018 Winter Olympics uniform.

Check out the full release from Burton below.

BURLINGTON, VT (November 2, 2017) Burton Snowboards is proud to officially unveil the 2018 Olympic uniforms to be worn by the U.S. Snowboard Team. PyeongChang 2018 will mark the fourth consecutive Olympic Games where Burton has partnered with U.S. Ski & Snowboard to create one-of-a-kind uniforms for the halfpipe, slopestyle and first-ever big air snowboarding competitions.

“The sport of snowboarding is neither nationalistic nor team-oriented in nature; however, all of that changes for a minute every four years during the Olympic Games,” said Jake Burton, Founder and Chairman of Burton Snowboards. “If the global expectations are that U.S. snowboarders represent their country in a uniform, then Burton wants to design and manufacture it. By doing so, we assure U.S. riders that they will have outerwear they can trust to perform at the highest level with a look they have input into and ultimately respect. Simply put, they want snowboarding outerwear, not athletic wear, and who better than Burton to provide it.”

Inspired by the rich history of the American space program, the 2018 U.S. Snowboard Team uniform is both innovative in function and retro-futuristic in design. On the futuristic side, both the competition jacket and pant have a liquid metal look, thanks to an exclusive iridescent silver fabric coated in very fine, real aluminum. Burton custom developed the fabric solely for the 2018 uniform by infusing an extremely lightweight aluminum-coated fabric typically used for audio equipment with highly technical properties ideal for snowboarding in any weather condition. The end result is a super technical, lightweight and waterproof fabric that reflects and deflects light as well as sound. Next, to pay homage to the spirit of the American space program, the competition jacket also features hand-drawn patches depicting the American flag and ‘USA’ in space-age font. Even the inside of the jacket is highly detailed, with artwork sewn to the lining that includes Korean translations of helpful lighthearted phrases like ‘Do you speak English?’ and ‘Wish me luck!’.

In addition to the competition jacket and pant, two stand-out pieces in the uniform collection include a spacesuit-inspired down one-piece and village down jacket, both created with bright white non-woven Dyneema® fabric, which is the world’s strongest fiber. Extremely lightweight, breathable and waterproof, the fabric itself has a very space-age feel inspired by the iconic 1960s moonwalk suit with a texture that breaks in over time, giving it a weathered look. To wear with the competition jacket and pant, Burton also created a super soft fleece jacket and pant made with custom Polartec® High Loft™ fabric that was originally created for the U.S. military. The uniform also includes a lightweight down insulator in a ‘moonbeam’ colorway and drirelease wool base layers in ‘international orange’, a signature color used by the American space program for astronaut suits. Leather mitts, fleece gloves, tech tees and beanies complete the uniform.

“This is the fourth Olympic uniform that Burton and myself have had the distinct pleasure of working on,” says Greg Dacyshyn, Head Designer of Burton’s Olympic uniform program. “Like the previous three which had a retro inspired influence, the 2018 theme is also a heavy nod to Americana, because its main influence is the iconic suits of the United States’ leading space exploration program. I have always loved the astronauts’ suits, because not only do they have such a cool and amazing aesthetic, they also were designed to function under the most extreme conditions, so this gave us an incredible platform to push the innovation and technology of the garments as well. My hope is that these pieces help the athletes go where no rider has gone before.”

“As one of the most recognized global brands in snowboarding, Burton brings tremendous value to our Olympic snowboard team with both its product quality and brand essence,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Chief Commercial Officer Dan Barnett. “We have very ambitious targets for all our athletes in South Korea. Success at the highest level of global competition comes from acute attention to detail and we know that Burton shares that philosophy. The shared vision Burton has with U.S. Ski & Snowboard and our world class roster of athletes is another of the vital building blocks being put in place to help our athletes achieve the medal targets set for PyeongChang.”

The U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team will be nominated based on a series of selection events this season including the three-stop Toyota U.S. Grand Prix with stops in Copper Mountain, Aspen/Snowmass and Mammoth Mountain.

Carinthia Parks – New Season, New Features

By the looks of it, Benny McGinnis, his crew of diggers, and resident welder behind Carinthia Parks‘ plethora of rails Rory Bruder, are getting weird in the shop. Did you see the angles on that new tube? During this past offseason, there’s been at least one new rail built per week. We will certainly continue to see more fire content out of Carinthia this winter.

Rome’s “The Autumn Wind” Trailer and 2018 Collection

From Rome Snowboards:

The leaves rattle nervously on their branches, knowing their fate is soon at hand. We awake to find the ground glistening with an otherworldly shine, frosted with the first sign of things to come.

Days grow shorter and shorter still as we wait patiently. Stepping outside our breath is illuminated, it won’t be long now. The Autumn wind howls and temperatures drop, a harbinger for the frozen landscapes we crave.

Soon.

Shaun White Injured in New Zealand Heading Into 2018 Winter Olympic Season, Announces on Instagram

Just like last month, Shaun White has taken to Instagram to keep us informed of how his season is going. And just like last month, it is a bummer to report that White has slammed again in Cardrona, New Zealand resulting in a trip to the hospital. This time with internet celebrity Dan Bilzerian in toe, White and Bilzerian posted about his slam this past weekend but everything seems to be fine. White even turned the announcement into a business move by showing off a pair of headphones made by Dre Beats and thanking the company for bringing him into the family.

Looking forward into the 2018 Winter Olympic season coming up, we are glad to see Shaun seems just fine with a few cuts and scrapes. We wish him a speedy recovery from this one and can’t wait to see him out on the hill again.
