Last Call at Loon Mountain 10th Anniversary

84LastCAllposterFINAL-1

It’s really hard to believe ten years has past since we at Eastern Boarder were dreaming up a spring snowboard event that we could all blow off some steam at. “Last Call” as it was dubbed, was simply a good reason to gather up shop employees, friends, and our local reps to have a few good laughs with on the trails together. We always thought the backyard type of gathering was the most fun to try and recreate on the slopes. Building oddball jumps and making things that tend to be on the sketchy side was always a good way to get people laughing, claiming and one upping each other. This “anti contest” contest of sorts was just the thing we all needed to let loose. In 2001 we had a little cash, some swag, some tall boys, and random things to toss out to the outstanding riders that survived the day, and overall Last Call looked like a success and worth trying again.
Loon in NH became home for Last Call a few years back and has since been an amazing host mountain for just such an event. The LMP park staff headed by Brian Norton puts in a ton of hours sculpting and tweaking their already impressive park to help make Last Call unique every time we go there. It still has a somewhat backyard feel and guarantees a lot of fun and claiming. The secret features we have sketched up this time around should have riders going all out. If they can’t ride it all they sure won’t be on top at the end of the day. Our 10th Anniversary event will again take place at Loon March 24th 2010. I can’t thank our extended EB family, friends, sponsors and spectators enough for helping to keep Last Call such an underground success over the years. Snowboarding needs this sort of thing. Without you all involved it just wouldn’t be able to happen. Thank you to this years sponsors K2 Snowboards, Oakley, 32, Redbull, NXTZ, Scion, Skullcandy and Dakine. Immediately following awards we’ll be in the Bunyan room below the gondola. Plan on getting a room that evening and follow us downtown for a little more letting loose too.

Hope to see you all there.

Congrats to Ursina Haller for taking 2nd at LG’s FIS Snowboard World Cup!

Here’s an excerpt form FIS Snowboard from Ursina herself.

Ursina Haller was also satisfied with her first ever podium; especially as she was able to showcase her true riding skills in a World Cup contest for the first time: “So far I wasn’t very successful in the FIS World Cup. I’m happy that I made it today. It was some nice riding today and if good things come out of it, it’s even better,” the 24-years-old stated after having landed “frontside air”, “backside 540″, “frontside 540″, “backside air” and “frontside 720″.

Next week, from March 18th through 21st, 2010, the first ever World Cup finals to be held in Spain will be staged. The final decisions in snowboard cross, halfpipe and parallel giant slalom will be held in La Molina.
