True To This Video Premier

by Administrator 30. March 2014 14:23

We are teaming up with The Red Carpet Night Club and Volcom for the premier of Volcom's latest video "True To This".  A motion picture celebrating America's First Boarding Company. When Volcom was founded in 1991, it was the first company to combine surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding under one brand from its inception. This way of life influenced the anti-establishment style and attitude that defined a generation. The cultural phenomenon was best captured when Volcom released "Alive We Ride" in 1993: a film documenting the raw excitement and spontaneous creativity inherent to the lifestyle. Twenty years later, with the release of "True To This", Volcom again captures the energy and artistry of board-riding in its purest forms. 

 

Doors open at 9pm on Friday at The Red Carpet, and we will be starting the video right at 10pm.  See you there!

Foundation 725 is a 10 week snowboard training program designed for youth ages 7-18; that focuses on building a basic "foundation" or platform on the snow.  The correct foundation, is above all the most important attribute in snowboarding.  Without a solid foundation, achieving new goals is nearly impossible.  Above this, thier main goal or purpose with thier program is to build good charater qualities in each student.  Foundation 725 provides a short discussion time before each lesson, were they share experiences and thoughts with each other in order to promote and encourage good morals on and off the hill.  Good role models are needed in snowboarding and Foundation 725 is is commited to being leaders that fellow riders can look up to. 

 

Foundation 725 has been developing snowboarders and teaching lessons up at Andes Towers in Alexandria, MN for the last few seasons and this season they plan to bring their program to Powder Ridge.  This is a season long snowboard development camp that will provide weekly lessons at Powder Ridge on Sundays from 2pm to 5pm.  The Camp is available to riders of all ages and abilities, and provides coaches from Minnesota that have competed on both the Regional and National Level.  

 

Whether its your first season on a snowboard and you are looking for some skills to be able to ride in the park, or you are a seasoned vet who is looking to step your shred game up to the next level; Foundation 725 will be here this season to help you achive your goals.

Snowboard Swap #2

by Administrator 8. November 2013 15:16

We have decided to do another Snowboard Swap. Since the last Swap we did was right before we moved from our old location, we have had a lot of requests from customers to have another one at the new location.

If you participated in the swap at the old shop last month, you will not have to pay the check-in fee. You can start checking in your items you want to sell on November 4th, there will be a $5 fee for every item checked into the swap.

There will be NO COMMISSION for any gear you sell that you want store credit for, but if you want cash for your gear that sells there will be a 15% commission.

The Sale will start on Friday November 8th at 11am and go to Sunday November 10th at 6pm. 

This is a great time to sell any old gear that's lying around the house, and get some money for some new gear. Hope you all will be able to make it! 

Snowboard Season is officially here!!!

by Administrator 7. November 2013 10:30

It's that time of year again!  The temps have dropped and local shred hills have been blowing snow.  It finally looks like the cold weather is here to stay and that resorts all across Minnesota will be opening shortly, but luckily for us there are a few that are opening this weekend.  You've been waiting all summer to get back on the snow and now is finally your time! 

Wild Mountain, located in Taylors Falls, MN- a quick hour drive from St. Cloud, will be opening today at 4pm and plans to be open all weekend.  Today will be rope-tow only, but they plan to have a chair lift running tomorrow.

 

You know if Wild is going to open; Trollhaugen, located 15 minutes away from Wild Mountain in Dresser, Wisconsin, will be right behind them with as many rails and features as they can set out.  Troll plans on turning on a rope-tow tomorrow, Friday November 8th, at Noon and they plan to have a chairlift run open by 4pm. 

 

Powder Ridge has been blowing snow lately, but they do not have enough to open yet.  Hopefully they will be open as soon as the weather allows them to be and we can be shredding on the daily, but until then you can catch us making the trip down to Troll and Wild everyday!
