Scotty Vine

Winter is on rapid approach and snowboarding season is right along side it. This is a Scotty Vine clip that will get you amping to hit the slopes. Here are some words from Scotty about the making of this clip, “Persevering through hard times shows courage and motivation to achieve goals, produces humility and can result in great accomplishments. The 2011/12 winter was the most difficult test of my life in snowboarding. I worked with many talented people over the course of the season who directly or indirectly affected the outcome of this video part. I proudly present this video as a thank you to those who made it possible. It has been 14 years since I started snowboarding and I’m grateful to be able to say that it’s still my passion and I still love snowboarding.”

Mammoth Mountain Art Park

As we all know, Mammoth Mountain is struggling due to the lack of snow this year. Looking at the mountain from a distance is extremely depressing and discouraging. However, there is one thing to get excited about… The Art Park! This year Mammoth Mountain collaborated with professional snowboarder and artist Jamie Lynn to bring forth an interactive art gallery on the slopes. The Art Park is built up of several rails, boxes, and jumps which have all been custom painted by Lynn.  The vibrant colors bring life to the park and encourage interaction. Make sure to get out there and add to the flavor!

Introducing Dylan Alito

Check out new Volcom am Dylan Alito. This 19 year old grom from Breckenridge, CO has some of the freshest jibbing style that I have ever seen. His lines are super techy and creative, and the kid charges on things you wouldn’t deem possible. His debut part in ThirtyTwo’s new am video AMMO is UNREAL!
