For the past four years I’ve headed to Lake Tahoe around the end of March or early April to get in some spring time snowboarding and for the past four years I’ve been met by a late season blizzard. Don’t get me wrong, I love surfing the powder but that’s more of a January/February type of thing for me. This year, mother nature was on the same page with me and that meant it was game on for one of my favorite pastimes, PARTYBOARDING! Click the pic and enjoy our edit which will probably make you wish you’d rode more this winter and/or have you counting the days until you can get to Mt.Hood this summer.

One of the great things about snowboarding is the freedom of expression that it allows. There’s so many things I could say about snowboard videos and how much they mean to me personally but I think that’d be rather boring. Instead I’m happy to have been able to ask my good friend and fellow east coaster Nick Russell some questions about his involvement in the forthcoming snowboard film Commotion. I’m highly anticipating the release of this particular film because I know it will represent snowboarding in it’s most true and pure form. Check out the interview and some clips after the jump.
Been a big fan of Band Of Horses since hearing their first album Everything All The Time back in 2006. Their new album Infinite Arms drops May 18th. The above video is the official one for their song Compliments. I’m not a huge fan of the video, though it is cool to see Mammoth and Lake Tahoe all mashed up like that. I am a big fan of the new song and hope that the rest of the album is more of the same.
It dumped all day yesterday and last night here in Truckee,CA so naturally today’s riding conditions will be glorious. People have many different rituals on powder days and one of mine is to listen to Iron Lion Zion by Bob Marley. Talk about a feel good, light a fire under yo ass song. So motivating I’m doing my taxes and eating breakfast while writing this! Not really but that’s the kind of motivating level I’m talking about here.
