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.

This Saturday, August 28th, 3-8pm, stop by the Podium Distribution HQ for the SEASON PASS PARTY with Mtn. High.
This last Sunday Active Ride Shop hosted the 9th Annual Sponsor Me Contest. The event was created to give up and coming riders a platform to showcase their talents and potentially get sponsored by the top snow brands in our Industry. Mountain High park staff built an amazing course that included a 35 ft Step down, a school yard down rail, and even had a one hitter in the half pipe. The event climaxed with the Sponsor Me Finals, which had the top 10 kids competing for the top spot. It was a close final, but young Patrick Kennedy edged out Utah ripper Jesse Ramirez with a tribute move to Ben Hinkley; the double front flip. Thanks again to Rome Snowboards, 32 boots, Vestal, VZ, Neff, Jarritos and of course Mt High and USASA staff for making this event possible. See you next year!
