DC Mutiny

The "Mutiny" from DC is basically a skate shoe built for snowboarding. Traditional lacing, Impact-S insole tech, and good looks make this mid-flexing freestyle boot hard to pass up.

Never Summer Snowboards

 The crew at Never Summer have been designing and building snowboards since 1983 and we have them on the board racks this year. All of their boards are made in their factory in Denver, CO enabling them to improve upon their existing technologies and put out some of the most durable, high-performance boards out there. Come check them out!

Designed with input from Dylan Alito, the "Peacemaker" is a freestyle twin that's soft in the mid-section but stiffer on the nose and tail for stability.

 The "Funslinger" is an asymmetrical twin with a soft flexing hybrid camber that also provides pop when you need it.

Proto Type Two
 The "Proto Type Two" is an all-mountain twin featuring a perfect mid-flex and a deeper heelside sidecut. Very much a jack of all trades.

Shaper Twin
 The "Shaper Twin" features Fusion Rocker meaning you get snap in the back of the board and a more surfy feel in the front making it a well-balanced machine.

The "Snowtrooper" is the Swiss Army Knife of the lineup. You can charge the entire mountain with its Original Rocker Camber, mid flex, and a slightly setback stance.

Get some preseason boarding in at Spirit Mountain during the 5th annual Fall Thowdown & Rail Jam on Saturday, October 27th. This year's festivities take place at the lower chalet, so don't go to the top of the hill! See you there!

Kickflip Challenge

The 2018 kickflip challenge went down yesterday and despite the cold weather we had a good sized group trying to land the most kickflips in 60 seconds. Reigning champion Carter Nguyen was the favorite and in the end he came out on top with 35 kickflips! Pretty insane considering the world record is 36... Will someone break it next year?

Union Atlas

The "Atlas" is a staple in the Union lineup featuring a stiffer highback and baseplate so you can really lay into those turns and go big.

Come hang with Joe Sexton at the shop this afternoon from 4-6! Swing by Bent Paddle afterwards for some bubble hockey with Joe and the crew. 

General Public

Public's "General Public" snowboard is a great option for someone who rides everything. Its "Alert Camber" profile (regular camber between your feet and rocker on the tip and tail) makes it a perfect choice for seasoned park rats and beginners alike. For under $400 you get a sweet new ride while supporting a local brand. Everybody wins.
