Whistler keeps getting pounded by big snowstorms followed by windows of glorious sunshiny days. These are the conditions that snowboard film crews dream about. We celebrate the bounty with Jake Kuzyk at the Videograss mancamp in Whistler. Just look at all that snow….thumbs up for snow.
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!
All of the Kr3w homies in the van. We have Jon Kooley, Nick Dirks, Shred Anderson, Will Tuddenham, Jake OE and Brown.
Lance Hakker, Captain of the ship.
Battle at the berrics 2. Yeah that’s right. Yes I know this is old news, I’m the worst blogger or bloggist alive.
Corey Kennedy was amazing.
Torrey Pudwill is ridiculous.
Chris Cole is part robot.
Dirks and brown took a break from their deep conversation concerning the future of our planet.
Jake OE is one somber individual.
Here we have the elusive Gus Engle.
I can’t believe my truck made it all the way to Alaska.
We would session Gus’s box every day before we went to a spot. It was the most fun I had all trip.
The Fourth Kind!
Johnny Miller looking scary.
Will Tuddenham looking emotional.
Get inside a small part of the small time it took Jordan Mendenhall to film his part in Videograss last year. Jordan tore his ACL at the beginning of the season last year and was only able to film a few days up at High Cascade Snowboard Camp last summer with Videograss filmer Justin Meyer. Jordan is riding the K2 Slayblade Snowboard, the K2 Jibpan Snowboard, Formula Bindings, and T1 Boots.

So last night the VideoGrass Premier went down at camp and guess what? It was AWESOME! There were tons of kids and the actual world premier is tonight in Portland. Not only was the movie good, but I got to hang out and have some good old times with some new and old friends!

Geez photos are fun! So my last day on hill was super fun. I cruised around the lap park and got dizzy on some picnic tables on a new rocker weapon, be sure to get one this winter cuz those things are tons of fun!
- The only snowboarding photo from the whole trip. The battery died, so it’s a good thing I landed this one.
So Mt Hood is super fun! I’m flying back to MN in the morning and looking forward to the winter! My trip was awesome! Thanks Kevin Winkel for getting me a pass and letting me crash. Thanks Mike Yoshida for driving me around, eating Cobra Dogs, and cooking some amazing food. And thanks to my friends for gettin loose and having some summer fun!
Hey everyone! This is Pat Campanaro, and I’m on a short trip to do some fun summer snowboarding at HCSC! So my trip here has been pretty wild so far. To start off, I got to the airport in Minneapolis, MN with huge lines barely about to make it to my flight… to my suprise, my flight wasn’t actually until 9:40 pm, so I was actually 12 hours early, oops! So after catching the next flight on stand by I was still able to make it to my 2:00 shuttle to the camp. Too bad my shuttle driver pasted Govy and brought me to Mt Hood Ski camp instead. Luckily I only walked about a 1/2 mile before someone picked me up and brought me to camp. So aside from the journey here, some pretty sweet stuff is happening. The Think Thank premiere went down and it was Awesome!
- Think Thank Premiere in the HCSC bowls
- K2 likes Think Thank
- Chris Beresford, Mike Yoshida, and Jesse Burtner
Pipe to Pipe also went down at Windells! Tons of people were around to both compete and watch the action!
- See… Lots of people
So ya, I’ve just been riding and having alot of fun so far. The Video Grass Premier is tonight and everyone is pretty hyped! I’ll be back later with some more photos and the rest of my story.
