Flow’s Jay Gretzinger Video From British Columbia

Check out Jason Gretzinger’s Video edit from three powder covered areas in British Columbia: Revelstoke, Whistler and Nelson.

Revelstoke:

“No where else was really getting snow in BC but Revy had ‘chest’ deep blower.” – Gretzinger

Riders: David Craig, Phillip Mossenger, Wiley Tesseoc and Jason Gretziner.

Whistler, BC

“We stayed in a cabin for 2 nights called The Zen Zone. We had wicked conditions and good snow.” – Gretzinger

Riders: Jay Gretzinger, David Craig (Sled)

Nelson, BC (Gretzinger’s Home)

“Chance Jensen and Charlie Dale were like kids in a candy shop because the terrain of pillows and tree riding isn’t really there in the Alberta Rockies.” -Gretzinger

A special thank you to all the sponsors who made this possible. FlowSnowboarding, 686, Dakine, Spy, Populess Clothing, Fall4Films, Nuulife Cinema and Freeride Boardshop.

TAILGATE BC 2012 POST…

Flow Tailgate British Columbia

 

Flow Snowboarding Tent

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

 

1st year of many to come for Tailgate BC

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

The flow tent was THE spot to be
The flow tent was THE spot to be… FREE Beer, Hot Dogs, Burgers, Crown Royal and a place to stay warm while swapping stories of where you rode that day.

 

“Man Games” every night Tailgate BC

“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 with the Flow Team

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)

Complementary Avalanche Airbag Systems at Eagle Pass

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!

Eagle Pass threw us Tailgaters a party at their HQ, Eco Bay Lodge

 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

OFF TO BC…

Tailgate British Columbia

This will mark the inaugural Flow Tailgate BC event. While there anyone can look for easy access via heli, sled, skiing and resort lifts. Around camp, backcountry education will play a central role, with snow-safety classes, beacon searches, and snowmobile riding/sled maintenance clinics. Flow Tailgate BC provides easy access to terrain made famous in countless ski and snowboarding videos.
