Excitement has been in the air the last week with rumours that Whistler would be opening, and on Saturday Nov 16th the mountain opened its slopes an astonishing thirteen days before the official November 28th opening date.

With others joining the queue throughout the early hours of the morning, people stood in line with high spirits, sharing opening day stories and celebratory drinks. One keen bunch of riders went as far as setting up camp in the middle of the line cooking pancakes, bacon and eggs to get ready for their first day.

Camper Sabrina Lynch wins Australian Junior Snowboard Series

Pro Ride Camper Sabrina Lynch competed in the Burton Australian Junior Snowboard Series August 8th – 10th and paced 1st in Slopestyle, BoarderX and Halfpipe to win the overall title of Australian Female Junior Champion 2013. 

The 1st day of the snowboarding competition was slope style with poor visibility and wet & windy conditions making it challenging to say the least.  Boadercross was on day 2 with much better conditions and well groomed course minus a few icy banks.  The final day was half pipe in the “Bright pipe” that opened for the 1st day this season leaving competitors with no training days prior.    

Crispin Lipscomb Back on the Olympic Road

Pro Ride coach and most amazing half pipe Olympian rider Crispin Lipscomb is back in training for the Sochi 2013 Winter Olympic games.  Crispin has been guest coaching with us for the past 3 years after retiring from the competition circuit in 2010.  He has been coaching Olympic hopeful and past Pro Ride coach Katie Tsuyuki for the past year which has given him the inspiration to get back to into completion level snowboarding.  Katie earned a spot on the Canadian National Team but turned it down to continue her 16 month training schedule with Crispin.  She has really stepped it up in the past year with Crispin’s new training program based on a philosophy of building confidence through technical skill development so that 100% process creates and inevitable outcome.
