Mountain Movers & Snow Park Technologies

Mountain Movers follows Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson and the Snow Park Technologies (SPT) team as they design and build some of the most impressive winter sports projects across the nation. Whether creating a remote private training facility for a high profile athlete, building the perfect halfpipe for the ESPN Winter X Games, or constructing a terrain park at a major winter resort, these larger-than-life snow-sculptors battle the elements to amp up the thrill of snow sports everywhere.

Monster Children x Chocolate Skateboards

Monster Children and Chocolate Skateboards have released a limited edition deck designed by artist Evan Hecox; the first in a series of collaborations to be issued this year as the magazine celebrates 10 years of publishing.

Available May 7th in Australian utility vehicle, or ‘Ute.’ Only 130 decks have been produced for sale worldwide.

The Chocolate collaboration is the first of many to be released in 2013, including collaborations with MAKR, HUF, RVCA, Stance, Incase and Vans amongst others. Monster Children’s 10 year celebrations will culminate in a huge MC hardcover book in September which traces the magazine’s history from its credit card-funded inception all the way through to the evil behemoth it is today. Stay tuned.

“We were really pleased to be able to collaborate with Chocolate and Evan creating this deck. We’ve had a great relationship with them both, ever since we started the magazine back in 2003 and were glad they could help us celebrate our 10th year.”
-Monster Children creative director Campbell Milligan
