BACK TO THE BONEYARD 3 AT WATERVILLE VALLEY


Pat Moore and Waterville Valey Present.....
Back to the Boneyard III

Call in sick to work, play hooky from school and be at Waterville Valley on Tuesday, March 15th for the 3rd Annual Back to the Boneyard! Last year was a wicked good soggy time and there is no doubt that the third installment will be even better. It's a celebration of snowboarding, old and new for all with a hunger for shredding. There will be a BBQ, raffle, PBR apr├Ęs party and Red Bull after-after party, with the like of Pat Bridges, Bill Enos, Ben Newton and Pat Moore.

Multiple features and events will be built to shred in a new contest format. The Mike Baker Banked Slalom, Stimilon Big Air Jump and the worlds smallest 1/4 pipe are just three of the new events planned for the event. Prizes will be awarded to each rider category from event sponsors Volcom, Special Blend, Foursquare, Forum, Eastern Boarder, Electric and Red Bull. Also new for this year's event riders could be crowned the King of the Boneyard for exceptional riding on each feature. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pat Moore Foundation, helping kids reach their goals in snowboarding through the Waterville Valley Snowboard Team. So bring your spring gloves, poncho... or your powder mitts because its New Hampshire and no one can really predict what will happen. Registration for the event will be $25 per rider and run 8-10am at the Event Yurt with all proceeds going to the Pat Moore Foundation.

Lodging Deal for 2 at The Silver Fox Inn located in Waterville Valley. $43 per person/per night gets you 2 double beds and breakfast. The lodging deal is in effect Mon. 3/14/2011 and Tuesday 3/15/2011. Call 888-236-3699 and ask for "The Back to The Boneyard Rate" to book it!

ROME IS WHERE THE HEART IS



I caught up with Romes TM John Cavan and some of the team the other day in Plymouth. This is what they do..this really is who they are too. Regular guys who know what being a snowboarder really is. What other brand comes into your backyard to ride your personal jibs and bring in some of their heavies like LNP and Lazz? Keep an eye out on the Rome site for a video edit from their time in NH.

LOON SESSION



Mulch and I took off to ride Waterville and Loon last week when it was ...ummm 40-50 out. Sunny skies, soft snow and we happened to sit in the same gondola as one of TJ's biggest fans....haha!

Any leftover snowboard dvd is now on super sale.....get any one of them for $10.

WATERVILLE VALLEYS DEB MOORE

Waterville has always been a great friendly place to ride, and a HUGE part of that is because of Deb and the marketing/events crew. Deb is moving on though at the end of this month. Everyone here at EB would love to wish her the very best with her new gig. Here she is with her son Pat whom you may have heard of before, and that's her on the lift with Mulch flipping me off through a mitten.....someone please get Deb some gloves. Best wishes Deb! You better be at Last Call.
