Definition: Snowboarding is two year project to be released in the Fall of 2015. It will include dozens of interviews and document all aspects of riding and the lifestyle that encompasses it. Interviews will be shot over the course of 2014, and exclusive riding footage will be shot during the winter of 2014/2015. Here’s a link to the trailer. So stoked for this film.

Mike Basich has reported a few flakes here and there nothing much but the progress on the chairlift at his 40 acre ranch on Donner Summit is going pretty good. A few glitches here and there but nothing that’s going to stop them. Concrete has been poured, towers have been put in and the job is getting done. Stay tuned about the progress and a chance to be there for opening day…
Flow Tailgate Alaska will return to Thompson Pass next season from March 29 – April 7, 2013 for its sixth straight year and flow Snowboarding is the Main Sponsor!
The event brings together dedicated recreational riders, professional athletes and the industry to ride the world’s best mountains and deepest snow.
Participants access the mountains through helicopter services, snowmobiles, snowcats and by foot, while getting discounts on lodging, local amenities and terrain access. It’s no wonder Flow Tailgate Alaska has grown into one of the most popular wintersports events in the world.This year, due to high demand by professional athletes and media, The Tailgate AK Organization will limit the number of tickets available to the public to 150. According to event founder Mark Sullivan, “Our goal is to ensure deep, untracked powder for every participant. Limiting tickets will ensure fantastic snow conditions for everyone who makes it.”In addition to free snow science classes, an on-hand rescue crew, and a free daily beer garden, this season, each ticket includes a pair of limited-edition goggles built by Dye Snow with Flow Tailgate Alaska branding. “We are excited to work with Dye again to make a really high-end, functional goggle. Even better, every participant will get a pair.” Tickets for the event went on sale September 14th, and they have sold 68 tickets since.
Flow Tailgate Alaska also plays host to the Flow World Freeride Championship – which carries on the tradition of competition in pristine mountains and conditions, that ended in the 1990s. Set for April 1-2, 2013. Look for details soon.
