The Silent Killer. K2 Snowboard Team Rider Mark Wilson is a soft spoken ripper hailing from northern Minnesota after spending his young years in tropical Hawaii. Mark’s calm demeanor shows through in everything he does; whether he’s cooking you a meal, cruising around Portland, Oregon on his bike, or strapping into his snowboard. Mark’s the kind of friend you can count on to be by your side on those 5am wake up calls or those late night street missions. His work ethic is incredible and he pushes the envelope harder than most while remaining calm, collected, and friendly as can be.
Last season Lucas Debari, Tim Eddy, and Matt Belzile headed to Japan. The results, an amazing adventure throughout Japan including multiple powder days, interesting foods, and good vibes. Shoutout to K2 Japan for hooking it up and providing us with a great experience. Arigato. #Japandwagon

After all the media hype, summer shred ramp up, and speculation of who is in the running for this year’s US Olympic Snowboard Team the time for answers is finally upon us. This weekend marks the beginning of rush to Gold as Olympic hopefuls compete against one another in the US Grand Prix in Copper and Gretchen Bleiler did not start off slow. Taking first in the qualifiers today with a 47.10 she is on her way straight to the finals. Check out TRANSWORLD SNOWBOARDING for more pics…
Opening weekend was a success for Whitefish Mountain Resort, with new snow and sunny skies (once the weekend warriors went back to work) the mountain opened up the entire backside and a couple runs down the front.
The groomers at WMR are some of the best in the country, long, fast rolly runs with epic views of Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
If you ever make it to Whitefish, call my mom Pam, (or hit her up on Facebook!!) she loves hosting any and all snowboarders!!
