First, and most importantly, anonymous commenting is back. The height of the season is over, midwest mountains are starting to close. We know you guys have lots of hilarious and witty comments saved up, so we’re rewarding your patience. Feel free to debate and annoy as you see fit, and just know when/if you cross the imaginary line, we have a master delete button and ain’t afraid to use it.
This past week has been a great one in board world. It’s been dumping coast to coast and seems like everyone who lives in a mountainous region of Americaland is finally getting theirs. On TV, the Olympic hype is dying down, but MTV’s Winter Break: Hunter Mountain lives on. It’s just moved to MTV2, Fridays at 8 now, rather than way past our bedtime on MTV like before. Phew! You can catch full episodes here.
As for Yo-personal updates (which you know you we’re gonna give you whether you want em or not,) Joey and Jake hopped an Amtrack away from the 6-foot pow dump in Tahoe to get tats in Los Angeles. While they were there, they stopped by a party thrown by Shaun White. Brooke flew back east, took third in the Mike Baker Banked Slalom at Waterville Valley and smashed herself into some rocks before collecting her swag bag at awards. Don’t worry, it’s not fatal, and according to the nice doctors in Castleton, VT, no bones or internal organs were damaged in the process. Jim is still getting ready to go to Alaska. Estes drank coffee with Wille Yli-Luoma and our newest contrib Patrick Whitehead spelled out how to make all your hopes and dreams come true. We’ve also got some new T’s in the printing process, and we’d love it if you bought one. (praying hand emoji.)
This week is gonna be a good one in Yobeat land, thanks in large part to Bear Mountain, which is “poppin rn” as the kids say. The new episode of Lift Accessed drops sometime this week. In the meantime, you have them to thank for another week of exciting snowboarding content to come, including yo-sclusive interviews with the stars of ESPN’s Real Snow 2018 dropping this HUMP DAY so accidentally click away on those banners, yo!
Now, enough typing, enjoy some videos.
