At Flow Snowboarding we do a lot of events all over the world, but the Tailgate Events are hands down the best. Not because it’s our event but because the memories and friends you make are for a lifetime. Trust me we go to the X-Games, Dew Tour, Grand Prix and a few other Big named events and nothing compares to Tailgate. Yes it’s not as action packed with tight pant wearing people doing double corks and there’s no free hair products, but it does bring backcountry enthusiasts from around the world together in search of the same thing… POWDER
Here’s a little tour of Tailgate BC 2012 Music by The Beer Boys
This was the 1st year of many to come for Tailgate BC up in the Great White North, Snowmobiles, Helis, Chairlifts and a ton o SNOW
“Man Games” were a hit as usual, every night Tailgate BC would throw some type of manish games. Axe throwing, Hammerschlaggan, Beacon Search and my favorite the Log into fire barrel overhead chuck. Hanna B won the Axe comp one night, so it shows anyone can participate in a Tailgate event, even you.
Mornings at Basecamp were popping, everyone was gathering in their different groups to go riding, weather to go Snowmobiling/snowboarding , the ski resort or Snowcat Boarding with Soul Rides Snowcats. The Flow Team grouped up this day to go up in the bird/heli with Eagle Pass with guide Scott Newsome (pictured below)
One awesome thing about Eagle Pass is that they offer complementary Avalanche Airbag Systems with full Avy kits inside. Shovel, Beacon, Probe and most important the Airbag it’s self. Here Scott teaches us about the use of the system and the Avalanche danger in our area for the day.

Eagle Pass also offers a warm lunch while out in the backcountry Heliboarding. Soups on!
One night Eagle Pass threw us Tailgaters a party at their HQ, Eco Bay Lodge. It was a one way sketchy road in/out and you had to call to make sure the 5 mile long driveway was clear. Iphone pics
Until next year… Thanks to the good people of Revelstoke for your great hospitality & all that attended. See you in AK!
