Going, going, back, back, to Cali, Cali.

The So-Gnar Squad assembled up for the West Coast Leg of the 7th Annual Snowboard Camp Tour and Shred Circuit Contest Series. After finishing up a camp stop, we decided to crew up and roll down to the legendary Bear Mountain. While taking a quick break from the Snowboard Camp Tour to get in some much needed hot laps.

Pat Milbery, Cody Potter, Garrett McKenzie, Mitch Schmidt, Damon Michaels, and photographer Chris Faronea got together and charged the mountain. Bear Mountain proved once again to be one of the funnest places to shred on Earth. With super unique jibs, the new Red Bull Scene and features everywhere, let’s just say we were not at all bored.

We were greeted by some very warm California sunshine, 65 degree temps and ended up running into old friends and meeting some new. Good times were had and some sessioning went down with Oliver Dixon, Richie, Lakota, Eric Leon, Lucas Magoon and The Dinosaurs Will Die crew.

A big thanks to Rio at Bear and Beef for the film sessions. We will hopefully be back soon, peace out Cali, we are are headed North to Washington for the next stop of the So-Gnar Tour at Summit at Snoqualmie this Saturday and Sunday March 9 – 10.

Come ride with the whole crew and have some fun. There are a dozen spots left. To register head to http://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1170055 and get ready for a good time!
