For the 10th year Active Ride Shop dragged its top players to Mammoth for late season fun in the sun and snow. Players were treated to Oakley’s poker night at Lakanukie and amazing live performance by Ezekiel band the Fling. By the way, they saved the party weekend because Neon Indian had to cancel last minute. GO Mark Willingham for pulling strings like a bowse! Partied out Active heads arouse each morning to Analog/Gravis prepared bagels and Mimosa’s and Sabre got down with Bloody’s to put the pep back in their step, so heads could shred. Another highlight of the weekend was Matix Savage Games which featured a brutal obstacle course of tricycling, pogo sticking, beer bonging and pie eating… oh yeah these boys and girls snowboarded too.
A HUGE THANKS goes to Oakley, Matix, Spy, Ezekiel, Burton, Vestal, Analog, Gravis, Vans, Signal Snowboards, Sabre Vision, Mammoth Mountain, Forum, Special Blend, 32, Penny Skateboards, Volcom, Rome Snowboards, LRG, and Gnarly for making this trip happen this year.
