2011 Active Brodown Showdown Slideshow/Recap

The 2011 Active Brodown Showdown wrapped up this weekend in Mammoth Mountain. The course was in awesome shape with tons of options that gave our riders plenty to work with. Dylan Alito turned to event into his own party and walked away with first place by giving us amazing, different lines every run with tons of energy. Second went to Jared Dawoud and third to Brandon Davis. Erik Leon took best trick, which I can happily say, was a huge method to flat. Check out these pics from the event:

Sponsor Me Contest

This past Sunday marked the 10 year anniversary for the Active Sponsor Me Contest held at Mountain High Resorts. It seem like just yesterday that we held the first one at Bear Mountain back in 2001, we at Active are so grateful to have the support of the competitors and our sponsors for this event. For this year’s Sponsor Me contest we tried to incorporate all aspects of park riding with Jumps, rails and boxes and even a half pipe feature. The Competition was pretty intense with over 70 competitors putting it on the line for a chance to win a 1 year rep rider contract from our title sponsors. In the end local boy Brandon Simon can out victorious, with Jeremy Estagay from Mammoth coming in a close second. Thank you to Rome Snowboards, 32 Boots, Vestal, Neff, Skull Candy, Jarritos and of course Mountain High Resorts for helping put this event together. Check back next week for the video.
