Another opening day is in the books and the Colorado snowboard season is now officially underway. Arapahoe Basin continued their streak as the first resort open in the state and, as expected, Nate Dogggg claimed first chair.
Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) will kick off Colorado’s 2014-15 ski and snowboard season on Friday, October 17, 2014. Skiers and snowboarders will be able to make turns on the intermediate High Noon trail starting at 9:00 a.m.
Some of snowboarding's brightest stars were in Denver last night to celebrate 20 years of Jamie Lynn with Lib Tech and the history of Mervin. From legends, to video stars, to Olympic gold medalists, it seemed like just about everyone was at Denver Beer Co.
"We are as into the early season as you all are – we promise that we will open as soon as we are ready. Renew your pass, tune your board, and get ready because the 2014-15 season is right around the corner."
No doubt about it, the Buck 90 and Ugly Kidz crews put in work last winter. While we wait for ITIS (watch the teaser here) to be officially released, read their "Van Life" feature in the September issue, and check out what didn't make the cut.

500 words… so I guess I can write about whatever I want. That in itself is really dope. Usually I get some prompt or other crap topic thrown at me and I’m told to write on it. I guess that’s just how school is…
