Miracle March in Tahoe

Well for most of us around the country this was a rough winter. Here in the Tahoe area we certainly had a dry winter, but thankfully it started snowing in March! We had a handful of healthy storms and there is even some coming our way this week in the middle of April. Eternal team rider Jake Devine was able to get out and enjoy this Miracle March!

Summit Shred Sesh

With blacked out passes and tourist invasions, President’s Day Weekend leaves many snowboarders in the Reno/Tahoe area with limited riding options, often stuck at home waiting for the long weekend to pass. This year however, good friend and Reno’s own build-to-shred expert, DJ Minsart and team member Wade Godi gathered the team and friends to build a mini park of their own to shred. Loaded with 4 rails hand-crafted by DJ himself, a BBQ and a few cameras, the crew met at the Summit to set up a park run for everyone to ride.

After a quick hour of set up, the rest of the day was open to shred the hand-built park.

In the midst of a banger session, Ranger Rick stopped by to admire the set up and check on us. After a quick reminder to clean up after ourselves, we had the go ahead to keep riding.

As the sun grew further West, it was time to pack it up. With 20 to 30 heads to help, the area was packed up in minutes. If you’re looking for features like these to have at your own disposal, DJ is the man to contact, willing to make any custom feature you can think of. Turned out to be a very successful day where no one had to spend money or battle long lift lines to shred!The Crew

This was a big win for Chas. Chas’ contest season got off to a slow start. He had some board issues at the X Games and was unable to make the finals. But he kept his head in the game and headed to Calgary for the 5 Star Burton Canadian Open where he turned the page for his contest season and took home the win and a big confidence boost. This is his winning run.
