On Sunday, February 26, 2012, The Mt Seymour Progression Team welcomed K2 Rider Jordan Mendenhall as a guest coach who spent the day riding with our team, offering insight, coaching and inspiration to our young riders.
Mt Seymour is all about providing young, up-and-coming skiers and snowboarders with a way to naturally progress their skills on freestyle and mountain terrain. With the incredible support of K2, our progression team comprised of freestylers between the ages of 10-14 has been working hard this season learning fundamental techniques to build a strong foundation and excel in future skiing and riding.
There’s tons of snow, but It’s a race to beat the inversion in Whistler! Robin, Annie and Hana end up finding some good snow and the jumping begins. Plus, a bonus pillow day with Leanne Pelosi, David Melancon and Claudia Avon.
It’s time to learn your new favorite trick—the backside 180. Jordan Mendenhall takes a break from filming with the Videograss crew to teach you BS 180 basics: start small, focus your gaze on the nose, and don’t force the 180 around—trust that it’ll come around. This is a trick you can make all your own just by adding personal style. You got this!

Snowboarding is much more than just banger after banger; It’s a journey, it’s euphoria, it’s pain, it’s excitement, it’s fear, it’s meeting new people, it’s sending it, it’s SNOWBOARDING.
Aaron was always the driving force behind this project. When it seemed like things weren’t gonna work out he always found a way to make it happen. He loved a challenge! I spent this last winter traveling around to many of his favorite places, meeting up with friends, and making some new ones along the way. I feel so lucky to have been able to share such great times with such an amazing person.
When Aaron passed away in Chile this last July it was hard to even think about the movie, let alone sit down and edit hours of his footage from the winter. It wasn’t until Blake Paul sent me an email highlighting the fact that one of Aaron’s goals all season was to get everyone down to Chile and film a segment for the movie that I came to realize something that should have been so obvious. We had to head South and finish what he had started. Although we were physically missing the one person who really should have been on that trip I feel like he was actually with us more than ever. We’ll miss you A-ROB!
