This season just keeps dishing up the goods and of course we keep on slashing away at them.

April has brought us a steady flow of fresh powder with very few breaks in the clouds. This means less bluebird days but at least the quality of powder remains light and dry. We have been forced into the thicker woods for visibility’s sake but I have no complaints. The goods are in the woods.
I apologize for all the GoPro shots in advance… The snowy weather has kept my nicer cameras in their bags for much of the season. I try to at least mix it up with some unseen angles.

Getting barreled

I love spring time in Northern Utah. Most resorts are closed and the masses have moved on to riding bikes and golfing. The storms keep rolling thru, raining in the valley and dumping snow in the mountains, leaving tons of fresh pow for me and my homies to track up.
I keep getting requests from people for longer boards… trust me, you don’t need the giant board that you think you might want! Our boards are designed to be much shorter than snowboards for a number of reasons and as you can see even the shortest board we make dominates the deep & light pow.

Here’s a quick peep of the 120cm slaying some April pow pow.


I’m loving how powsurfing has opened up so much new terrain to play in and on. Features that we would normally disregard have become the source of all sorts of good times. It really makes you look at the mountain differently and opens up new worlds of possibilities.

I’ve been driving by this feature for years on my snowmobile. I finally took a closer look at it and this cave/couloir made for a perfect gap jump.


We threw together this quick kicker to see what we could do off it. If you could make it past the insane run it at extremely high speeds then you got to boost off it. Made for some pretty cool footage… either you would slam super hard on the in run, or you would get a nice boost into a perfect landing.

I’ve always wanted to kickflip off of a cliff, so we made it happen one fine day. It was great fun until my board shot out and hit the snowmobile, exploding on impact.
Kickflip rock drop…scary.



Pop shovit in the pow!

A simple pow slash always puts a smile on my face. There has been no shortage of these this season. In fact, my face is sore from smiling so much.

The powder has been stacking up deep this year… the big boards have been seeing quite a bit of action.

This winter has been relentless. A constant flow of storms has kept us riding fresh pow every time we get out. Sunny days have been few and far between but the quality of snow has kept powsurfing conditions epic to say the least. Bigger airs, faster lines…. powsurfing just keeps getting more and more fun and the possibilities reveal themselves every day.

Slashing in a sea of pure white…

On the way to the goods….note the only track within 100 miles is Benor’s and I am right behind him! Today is gonna be sick.

We were pretty amped to show up to a foot + of fresh pow and not a track in sight or any sound of sledneckers in the distance. Things were gonna get rad….. until the track on my sled broke- sending me flying over the handlebars as the sled rolled over. No bueno… It was up to Benor to chauffeur all 4 of us around for the day.

We still managed to get the goods. Some easier access stuff, we sessioned a kicker for a bit, then a kicker over a cliff (on our snowboards), then we spent the rest of the day powdersurfing.
Slashing pow runs and building small jumps and hitting the natural rollers. A few kickflips were landed, a bunch of shovits, the biggest backside 180 I have ever done and copius amounts of powder was slashed.


Jeremy- cliffdrop

Castle Rock – Untouched!
We started the day off snowboarding (aaron was skiing) so we could take full advantage of all the terrain as best we could. Adrenaline was pumping all morning.. My legs and hands were shaking after every run. These lines really get your heart going, especially once you enter the ampitheater. The already steep hillside just rolls away out of sight and you have to be 100% committed or you are probably going to eat shit hard.

We pretty much had our way with this zone all day but I had to get one more …. without the aid of bindings.

This is one of my favorite snowboarding runs. Long, steep and exposed… I was stoked be the first to ever shred this line on the powdersurf board. (today was my second run on it) My choice of deck was the “Sardine”. A directional board that is pretty skinny compared to most of my boards. It was definitely the board of choice today because the snow was barely deep enough to be able to turn in.
I went for the bomb drop off the top and slammed pretty good, the landing was much flatter than it looked… Oh well, the last 1000 feet of my run was epic. The snow was slightly variable and that can be really tough without bindings. I made almost all the way down before taking two of the hardest slams I have taken all year. Full body slam while hauling top speed… my brain shook around in my head like jello- ouch.

Jeremy – Bindingless…Ready for takeoff…

Bombs away


I didn’t feel too bad about slamming on the bomb drop as I slashed mad pow the rest of the way down….this shit is like therapy.



…..we don’t need no stinking bindings!!!!
We decided to powdersurf for the rest of the afternoon. It was pretty fun but the variable snow conditions gave us quite a bit of hell. Lots of slamming.
Craig- slashing

So after 12 hours of killing it I was pretty pooped. This was certainly one of those days I will remember for a while.
