More Openings!!!

Mount St. Louis Moonstone is open today, not sure of the details or anything like that, but its closer to the city than Horseshoe, and it's open. Dagmar announced this morning on their twitter that tomorrow (Saturday) at 9am the lifts will open for the first time this year. Their website is crap, so don't bother looking there, and there aren't any details on discounted lift tickets as of now. Horseshoe is opening 2 more lifts and 3 more runs for the weekend, and the day pass is staying set at $25 for now. The season is finally here, come get your stuff waxed at ready to go

$3-hot scrape
$7-base repair
$12-set-up/binding customization

Also, Rome Premature Jibulation is happening at Horseshoe Sunday. Entry is $30 lift ticket and everything starts at 8:30am. Go try and win a new board, bindings, boots, etc. Free hotdogs and good times

It's Here!!!

With Horseshoe in Barrie opening yesterday, a couple buddies headed up to take advantage of the $25 full day lift tickets. Fun was had, rails were killed, food was eaten, and ankles were hurt. All in all it sounded like an awesome opening day in Ontario even with the lack of snow and being limited to only 2 runs. Following Horseshoe's lead, Mount St. Louis Moonstone has announced they will open for their first day on Friday (December 11), Dagmar is set to announce

First Ontario Shred Day

So tomorrow marks the opening of the season in Ontario. There have been a couple of rail jams and contests around, but tomorrow Horseshoe up in Barrie is opening for the first day of the season. With only 2 runs and 1 lift open, it's not a lot by any means, but it's definitely a start and we're looking at heading up at some point tomorrow to get in some laps. They have some parks features set up apparently, so that should make for a pretty fun day #1.

Oh yea, lift tickets are only $25 and they're open from 9-4:30 until they say otherwise!!

We're People Too

Many people as teenagers, young adults, and often even people who are much further along in their lives are looked down upon because of certain "styles" or "actions" and may feel unappreciated. It's very hard to convey these feelings to others, but the people who have the hardest time are those who are homeless. Every day they are walked past, ignored, dehumanized, shrugged off by so many people (many of who could easily afford to help them out with even as little as a dollar). I know personally I've been guilty of this, but I also try to give to help out when I can with change in my pocket when I have it, and it gives a feeling that can't be put into words. Sometimes all it takes is a little understanding, or even just spending some time with somebody to make them feel better about themselves.

Here's a video that pro-snowboarder/artist Tj Schneider made. It's inspiring to see how the smallest things like giving someone something to draw on, or giving them a portrait of themselves can make them so happy.

Story as told by Tj:
II gave him some money one night and he came over to talk to me.

He said “Sometimes somethings can break a man”

“I can tell you are different , you are a good man.”

I gave Sylvain a gift , I hoped that he would sell it to buy food or a warm place to sleep for the night.

But he looked at me and said ” No … I’m going to keep it”

He’s a lot different than the person I expected to meet.

Clean and Sober , An unfortunate accident left him unable to work. He showed me his scars

told me how close he was to taking heroine to numb his pains

he shook my hand and said “Thank you”

Check out tjschneider.com for more work by Tj, and if you want a look at the "other" fun side of pro-snowboarding by sure to stop by thesnowboardrealms.com

Olympic Torch in Pickering!!

Hey guys, we just learned that the Olympic torch will be passing through Ajax/Pickering on December 17th. The route hasn't been released yet, but this is going to be an unreal chance of a lifetime to see this thing. There is also a "celebration" in downtown Toronto the evening of the 17th if you want to check that out. No details other than that have been released yet, but I for one am definitely going to check it out and start the party of a lifetime. More details will be posted as they come out.

Open House, Sale, Rail Jam?

This Sunday, November 8, Brimacombe (formerly Oshawa Ski Club) will be hosting their annual open house, First Frost at the Brim. There's going to be a pro shop tent sale with big deals, a show of this year's latest outerwear, free snacks and drinks, cheap BBQ food, jumping castle (who doesn't love these?), bumpin music, several displays, and depending on the weather, there will be a rail jam. They're not promising anything because if they do and it doesn't happen, people will be disappointed, but they are saying that if it's possible and the weather co-operates, there will be a rail jam going down.

It's from 10am - 2pm @ Brimacombe East Chalet, Gate 4 - 4098 Regional Rd. 9, Orono
Phone Number: 905-983-5983

Early Season Pre-Jib

Rome presents the 6th annual Premature Jibulation event. I'm itchin', you're itchin', and the guys at Rome are itchin'. Everyone's ready to get some snow on the ground and do the dirty, so Rome has once again put together a free local comp for you to win some stuff. A board, bindings, boots, shirts, who really knows? There'll also be some free food (hotdogs) and product tosses so you don't have to pay to maybe get something you want.

Vermonster Lives

So, guys who run Monster Energy Drink have decided to back off from their "claim" against Rock Art's Vermonster brew. Congrats to the Vermont microbrewery on the win without having to go to court.

The Drink of a Monster!!

This is actually extremely pathetic and disheartening. A corporation going after a micro brewing company because they have the word "monster" in one of their product names. Check this out for more insight as to why you should stop supporting the Monster Energy drink that is so widely promoted in "extreme" sports such as snowboarding, skateboarding, and snowmobiling.
Stop the Monster!!

So, apparently its snowed a bit out in Colorado, school's started, the days are getting shorter, everything to do with fall is happening, and after fall comes winter. Winter means snow, and snow means boarding (or skiing, whatever floats the boat). Right now is the perfect time to get your gear all dialled in for the upcoming season so that when the first 6 inches of snow stick to the ground, you can grab the phone, call your buddies and say "Let's go hit that rail we've been staring down all summer" and you'll know that all you need to do it throw on your boots, grab your board and you're ready.

Here are this year's prices:
Hot Hand-Wax - $7
Hot Scrape - $3
Edge Tune/Detune - $5
Base Repair - $7+ (depending on extent of damage)
Initial Snowboard Set-Up/Binding Customization- $12

We're back and we feel bad

So we're back from an epic week out west in the "Legendary Fernie" after 9.5 hours in an airport and 10 hours on a bus.  No fresh pow fell during the week, but we were able to hit up some lightly tracked snow after a half hour hike.  Its crazy, the people you meet while staying in places out in BC.  There were some Aussies, Swedes, Americans, New Zealanders.  Anyways, it was a good time, but now it's time for you guys to enjoy yourselves.  March break is coming up soon, so hurry and get your boards and skis waxed up.  Also, because we were gone from you for the last week, starting March 10-17, get 20% off of your next tune or shirt pre-order when you buy a tune or shirt pre-order!!!

Last Call for Tuning/Sliders!

Thursday is the last day that we'll be accepting boards for tuning  and orders for your sliders until the end of February.  We're taking off to Fernie, BC on Saturday on a Carbon-Neutral boarding trip, so in order to have time to fix up your gear and get it back to you before we're gone, you have to drop it off by Thursday and pick it up either Friday or Saturday morning.

Thursday, February 5, 2009


So I guess it's about time that we've fallen into this blogging fad, and it's time to give some updates to what's happening with us.  We're working on getting some T-shirt samples made up and hope to make them available to you guys in Spring or Summer '09.  If you have any creative intelligence and want a chance to see your work put on a shirt, email us your design on a t-shirt template and you could be the one who gets that chance.  If you need your boards/skis tuned up, make sure you get 'em in his week because we're heading out to Fernie next weekend and won't be in Ontario to help you out.  Peace.
