The STITCH: It’s about that time again – Snowboarding Season!

The leaves are changing, the weather is finally cooling down, and winter is approaching fast.  This all means one thing – SNOW!  This is my absolute favorite time of the year and I’m so stoked for this upcoming snow season.  Snowboarding is such an exhilarating and exciting sport.  There’s nothing better than the rush of adrenaline that pumps through my body as I zoom down the mountain.  The fresh air relaxes me and all of my worries and stress melt away at the sight of a snow-capped mountain.  Snowboarding gives me a chance to be at one with nature and to experience it to the fullest. To me, snowboarding is the epitome of freedom, and when I’m on the slopes I’m enjoying life!

This season, stop into select Active shops to stock up on all your snowboarding needs! We’ve always got the latest and greatest gear, and the best deals around!

See y’all on the mountain!

Active Snow locations: Active San Dimas, Active Brea, Active Rancho Cucamonga, Active Temecula, Active Orange.

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.

Shaun White has probably spent more time on his skate and snowboards since he was born than just about anyone in history, and it shows. Yet how much of what goes on around him does he really take in. ? Some would argue that Shaun is the most influential rider in the history of our sport. T, but that being said, the question remains, —how much of our sport’s culture has Shaun himself been influenced by and retained? This month’s Sicktionary is a little Snowboarding, and Skateboarding, Aptitude Test, or S.S.A.T, if you will. How well would you have fared?
-Pat Bridges

Snowboarder Mag:
How many people can ride a tT-bar?
Shaun White: Two. My mom tried to ride one in Europe and it slipped out and hit her lip, cracking a tooth.
Snowboarder Mag:
Correct. T-Bars are surface lifts that carry two people.

Snowboarder Mag:
What is bevel?
Shaun White:
I am pretty sure it is the angle you want your rails.
Snowboarder Mag:
Correct. It is when you tune your edges to be something other than 90 degrees to help with jibbing or turn initiation.

Active Snow Sponsor Me Contest 2008

?Sponsor Me? what a concept, in day and age where getting noticed is as difficult as finding a parking spot during Christmas time, Active, Rome, Vans, and Von Zipper simply made it easier by bringing the spot light to Mt. High so kids can show their skills for a shot at a 1 year sponsorship from the these respectable companies. This is the 7th Annual Sponsor Me Contest and by far the best one. The course showcased several different jibs as well as the addition of a 40ft jump this year. The riding was better than we could have ever imagined, not to mention the winner had no sponsors what so ever. We are stoked to be hooking him up for this next year! Big thanks to Rome, Vans, Von Zipper, Vestal, Skull Candy, Mt High, Boost Mobil and Vans for all the support on another great year! Continue reading Active Snow Sponsor Me Contest 2008
