MASSANUTTEN, VA. – The final stop on the 2012 Scion Snow Tour. After three seasons preaching the gospels of the tC, xB and xD, I juuuust started to get a handle on my new life on the road when it was all over. We’ll be back next season, no doubt.  But a lot of good times and great events were had on this tour, and what better way to say au revoir than with a 60-degree day partying in the park at Massanutten Mountain. The rides, doin' what they do. Me, Stephen & Nolan lapped the park for over an hour before checking out the summit. I was smarter this time and wore the right gear. Stephen, tailblocking and testing that sweet Signal bend. DJ Nolo (Nolan) remixing a FS 5-0 on the corrugated tube. Dubsteppin' it to the streets. The view from the top of the United States of Virginia. I was surprised at the size of the resort but then remembered that everything's bigger in the South. The Event: The event was amazing. For it being so late in the, relatively low-tide, season, there was an awesome turnout. I rocked the mic at the bottom, while Nolan and Stephen high-stepped it uphill to get a closer look at the action. Eventually, we called all the riders down closer to the bottom of the park, where we had a mini finals jam on the corrugated tube. I saw halfcabs and 180s on, 270s, 5-0s and all kinds of lipslides. Kids stepped up. When the dust settled, though, there could only be one winner. One person taking home Best in Snow for the final stop on the 2012 tour. The winner of winners. Sam took home a brand new Signal Snowboard, Signal Outerwear, Celsius Boots, a bag full a' Scion stuff and a Scion Snow Tour Snowflake trophy by A Graham of Glass. Congrats, homie. You're sponsored. Here’s the breakdown: Best grom: Christian Best Lady Boarder: Renee Best Skiier: William Knot 3rd Place Overall: Austin 2nd Place Overall: Jack Shuster 1st Place Overall & Best in Snow: Sam Skidmore Congratulations to all our winners! It was so amazing to be able to spend the last stop on the tour at such a surprisingly large, spirited and super supportive mountain. Mass o’ nuttin? Hardly. Thanks to all our great sponsors: Scion, Signal, Celsius and A Graham of Glass for another great year and another terrific tour. We’ll see you all next season!  

 
Stop 7: Timberline, WV

Stop 7: Timberline, WV

Timberline, West Virginia. Home to the only 2-mile run I know of anywhere in the Midwest, and maybe even the East Coast. It was sunny and 60 when we showed up, so I, like the idiot I am, jumped on the chairlift with only a hoody and loose-fitting beanie. That was the last time I felt my face all day. Stephen, Nolan & I pointed it all 2 miles, and by the time I got to the bottom, I felt like my entire head was inside the brain of someone who just sucked down six Bladder Buster Slushies in Alaska. I had wicked brain freeze. Here are my two idiotic partners: Stephen & Nolan (in lens). They ride for a shop near Ski Roundtop, PA, where we just held an event the night before. Nolan actually earned his place on the Tour by winning the Roundtop Snow Tour event last season. Congratulations, buddy! Now stand in the cold and watch other people snowboard. Just kidding. They love it. The Event: The event kicked off in typical Snow Tour fashion: with an hour-long open format jam session with me squawking on the mic, plugging the afterparty, hyping the Tour’s sponsors and annoying the hell out of the riders and members of the crowd. We love doing events at resorts like this––resorts with so many fresh, enthusiastic ears who are still psyched to ride and get behind the Tour’s message, riding for fun and with friends. Just when I thought I couldn’t love this place any more, I met this guy: …and he threw me down a beer off the lift. I only wish I’d remembered to wait a few seconds before opening it. Thanks, guy! AfterWords: After the event was over, the owners treated Team Scionara, the park manager and a few other T-line employees to the biggest honkin’ southern-style rib dinner I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to come back here. Anyone up for a summertime snow tour? Thank you, thank you, thank you to Timberline 4 Season Resort, Signal Snowboards, Celsius Boots, A Graham of Glass and SCION for another epic stop. Double thanks go to our competitors, spectators and everyone stoked on the Snow Tour. If you all were comments on Facebook, we’d hit the ‘Like’ button a hundred times.  

 
Stop 6: Ski Roundtop, PA

Stop 6: Ski Roundtop, PA

The Stop: Our annual event at Ski Roundtop is awesome for two reasons: it’s on the white and it’s under the lights. I got there early and took one or six joy laps through the park before the competitors started showing up. As the sun shrunk below the trees, the temp cooled down, but the contest was just starting to heat up. The park crew lugged out extra lights to spotlight some of the features for the night jam. The Stuff:  This weekend, we displayed brand new models of Scion swag, touting T’s and upgrades in fresh breathnology. Scion mints are turbo-charged social lube, helping you reach zero to sexy in seconds. Mint condition The Setup: We ran an open jam for a half hour, then hand-picked a slew of riders to battle it out in the two-part finals session. The rail on the left was part I. The disaster gap on the right? Part II. The Scenario: Giving away a brand new Signal board, Signal outerwear & Celsius boots for Best in Snow, like we always do on the Tour, is like being fully sponsored for a whole season. As a sponsored rider and paid shred for almost six years, I have a pretty good idea of what it’s like. Sometimes you have to ride when it’s cold or icy. And sometimes you have to hit rails you don’t want to hit and do tricks you don’t want to do. So I decided to give the Tour competitors a taste of the sponsored life they’re all starving for. I chose two features: one to test riders’ tech savvy and another to push them to high stakes, high consequence glory.   Feature 1: Tech   I called out tricks and competitors had to do or die. By the end of the session, I made it mandatory to spin on or off the rail. Things were heating up. Feature 2: Power Behind the wall ride is a 6 foot gap from the lip to a down rail. This is a horrible photo of it, but it’s the best one I could find on my phone. Between judging, commentating, photographing and spectating, I was juggling a lot already. And I can’t juggle, so I was dropping the ball, big time. But anyways, the session on this feature was all about muscle moves. Dudes were flying at this thing, throwing FS 270s, BS 270s and 450s. I even saw a skier try to cork onto it (the doctors say he’ll be fine…just kidding). The event was totally awesome. We gave away a ton of great Scion stuff and other gear from our amazing sponsors... read more »
