Last year a group of snowboarders was afflicted with an illness like no other. Temperatures dropped, precipitation fell and these rippers got sick. Sick in deep, fresh snow; sick dropping pillow lines; and sick sending it off jumps. Featuring BTB crew Christine Savage, Fancy Rutherford, Taylor Elliot, Madison Blackley, Yui Satoma, Melissa Riitano, and more talented female snowboarders who have an affinity for powder! Careful, though, the first Powanoia mini movie will probably make you want to get sick in the mountains, too. Filmed and edited by Kieth Rutherford (Fancy's husband!).
Beyond the Boundaries is adding a new East Coast stop to its 2018 schedule of camps at Mountain Creek in New Jersey. Mountain Creek has a long legacy in snowboarding, offering up some of the best terrain parks for honing your skills and taking fun laps. An extra awesome bonus is that Creek is the home resort of BTBounds Co-Founder, Christine Savage. Christine fell in love with snowboarding at this NJ mountain and dropped into boxes and rails for the first time in the Mountain Creek Terrain Parks. The Mtn Creek edition of Beyond the Boundaries takes place on January 27-28, 2018. Registration is open!
Ever wonder what some of your favorite female boarders have in their headphones when they're dropping in? For many of us, a steady stream of jams is a winter necessity, whether it's for the drive to and from the mountain or while taking runs. It's always nice to find new music, so we are tapping the BTBounds coaches to share what they are currently listening to. First up is Michigan native, Jackie Lammert! If you’ve seen Jackie snowboard, you know that she’s got quite the bag of tricks, as well as some of the smoothest style around. Check out some of the songs that keep her motivated on and off the snow, so you can add to your personal soundtrack for the upcoming season.
“Here are my current and some old favorite songs in no apparent order!" says Jackie. "I love all of these songs for boarding, but they work for chilling or working out, too!!”
Powanoia is a new video crew focused on powder and backcountry snowboarding and featuring a ton of our awesome BTBounds coaches! Christine Savage, Iris Lazzareschi, Fancy Rutherford, Taylor Elliot and Madison Blackley spent last year stacking clips from the US to Japan for their first-ever video and it is premiering in Big Bear during Hot Dawgz and Hand Rails! Saturday night, after the contest, head to The Cave to watch these ladies rip! Doors at 8pm! For more info, @dankdonuts on Instagram.
Also, head to the event to cheer on Madison, Jackie Lammert, and Nirvana Ortanez!! <3 Yeah, ladies!
