2011 TNF Masters At Crystal Mountain: Weather Day Story and Video


Crystal Mountain, WA – With an official weather day a group of riders went out in search of fun times and lots of freeriding. Our group consisted of Josh Warnick, John Rodosky, Scott Sheer, Snowboard's Jon Glass, Forrest Burki, Blair Habenicht, Nick Ennen from Wildcard Movies, Ben from Transworld, Ryan Hudson, Jim O' Conner, myself and another 12 of the most insane riders in the country. Watching everyone lap around the mountain was inspiring, everyone was trying new tricks and feeding off one another.

Everyone brought there own style of riding to the table from pacific northwest locals to Utah shreds, Coloradians and Mammoth residents all feeding off one another. At the very least coming to these events will make you a much stronger snowboarder.

Tomorrow's contest in the Northway venue could very well end up being a powder riding competition. I for one would be all for that!

Stay tuned for updates from Day #1

We are very sad to report the snowboard world has lost one of the good ones. Scotty Goodale has passed away. I will be making my run tomorrow at the Masters on Scotty's behalf. RIP.
