Spotlight on Coach Tim Russell

Tim Russell is the definition of a gentle giant, he loves nothing more than hand planting and mucking around in the park with friends or slashing through the trees on a powder day. Tim is so stoked on snowboarding; he truly enjoys teaching people and watching the excitement in their face when they land a new trick.

Tim has been part of the Pro Ride family for over 6 years making his knowledge of both Whistler and Blackcomb mountain quite extensive (he knows all the secret spots to get the best powder).
We asked Tim to answer some questions so you can get to know him a little better.

Choosing the right snowboard boots

Buying comfortable snowboard boots is so crucial and often overlooked process. The snowboard boots you choose can either make or brake your time on the hill. We have written this guide to give you the knowledge to pick the right snowboarding boots the first time.

Fit
Snowboard boots should be a snug fit but they also shouldn’t cause pain. They are going to need several days of riding to truly form to your feet which is why boots should be frim when they are brand new.

Whistler - 50 years of going beyond

Check out Whistler new full-length movie - 50 years of going beyond! 

Today Whistler released their new documentary, which celebrates 50 years of Whistler Blackcomb. It’s a very interesting insight into the journey Whistler has taken to become the snow mecca it is today.
What began as a tiny single mountain resort in 1966 has now erupted into the massive dual mountain wonderland Whistler is famous for.
Whistler has come a long way in 50 years; we are all excited to see what the next 50 years will hold.
