Leanne Pelosi has spent the last ten years paving the way for female snowboarders not just in the streets but the backcountry as well. It’s no wonder ESPN has named her among the top 50 women of action sports. Congratulations Leanne, here’s to ten more years!

Team Sports is unlike any snowboard event done before bringing HCSC campers and pros together around a good ol day of snowboarding. Fifty-six tricks, one rail and one jump to determine the winning team. If you’re signed up for session two you’re already stoked and if you haven’t signed up for camp yet we recommend you shoot for June 26 – July 3. We’ll have burgers waiting for ya and an opportunity to go down in HCSC history.
It’s 4am as I come to, awakened by the sound of uncontrollable solitary laughter only to doze right back off as if passing through a dream. Come to find out on day two of our road trip that Nick Dirks had unknowingly pissed all over the bathroom door in our RV. That was the first twenty-four hours of a 1.5 week long road trip out to the Holy Bowly at Park City with a stop at Mt. Bachelor along the way.
Seven athletes, two filmers, two photographers, two mountains and one goal – Have fun with our friends. I’ll be honest we don’t have Red cameras or heli budgets, we don’t have outlandish production availability or a fleet of snowmobiles ready to rip at the sign of a break in the weather; what we do have is an insanely talented group of snowboarders who love hanging out and snowboarding together. It’s only obvious that the best way to mix this drink is to get everyone in the same place at the same time and tell them to go apeshit and use the content generated for 15.16 advertising purposes. Here is a sneak peak at what we saw along the way. Be on the lookout for an edit dropping this fall and until then enjoy the summer. Don’t forget to piss all over the bathroom door, it’s funny as hell!
Crew: Tim Eddy, Chris Beresford, Johnny Brady, Nick Dirks, Shaun McKay, Gray Thompson, Alex Rodway, Justin L’Heureux, Sam Tuor, Jered Garrison and me Peter Mullenbach.
