Ski Barn just had their 2010 tent sale last week. We headed over Saturday to help out with the sale at the Lawrenceville, New Jersey store; the 90 degree weather wasn’t equating to snowboard products in many people’s minds. Good thing the great deals on the 2011 products had our back. There was some good traffic throughout the day; there were many K2 boards, bindings and boots sold! Everyone was stoked on their new set-ups! Ben, Rich, and Ryan from Ski Barn held down the place pretty well and they have a ton of knowledge so make sure you go see those guys! They’ll hook you up with the right set-up.
This last weekend, I went to ‘The Meeting’ in Aspen. It’s basically a film premiere for snow and ski, and they kindly invited myself and Hana Beaman to represent Standard Films. We got to test out some dirt bikes the first day on Buttermilk with some of the other athletes from the other films. I fell in love with my little 50 that I was on! One day I will buy one, and have a mini track in my backyard.
We celebrated Grete Elliassen’s new movie, “Say My Name”, we saw Jeremy Jones’ movie, “Deeper”, Forum’s “F It” our Standard Films movie, and some ski movies that I forget the names of. They were all really good, and got the crowd stoked for the winter. I especially loved the lifestyle commentary from Jeremy’s movie, while they tested their mental psyche on waiting out a storm that last a few weeks.
Aspen also had some panel speakers on topics like the Olympics, Social Marketing, and Content distribution. It was interesting that a lot of people agreed that sports go to the Olympics to die…for example, Mogul skiing. Too many restrictions on the sport, which affected the progression, therefore now no one is interested in paying any attention to it. Just hope that doesn’t happen to snowboarding….
Last night was an ode to the high school days! Bone Thugs & Harmony played at Belly Up. They killed it, sounded exactly like I remember on tape, and they had everyone bouncing. We even got onto the stage for a quick minute. ha ha. Good times.
Thanks Deric from Aspen for making this all possible!
Jordan Mendenhall also had some interview time down in Chile. Check it out!
Danny loves snowboarding and it shows in this interview. Keep the passion alive, Danny!
Resourceful Gnome’s “Respect Your Elders” and The People Crew “Cheers” is headed down to Portland on October 1st. If you’re around, come have some fun and celebrate the excitement that continues to build as the weather changes for the better.
