Snowboard Canada: RIP

Snow23_4-cover

Snowboarding’s most legitimate news source, Tim Zimmerman’s Twitter/Facebook feed is reporting “It’s a sad day for snowboarding & snowboard print media in Canada. RIP.” At this time, our other sources tell us that while nothing is for certain, all staff were informed on Friday July 10th 2015, all employees of SBC Media, the parent company of Snowboard Canada MagazineSBC Business MagazineSBC Resort GuideSnowboard Canada Women’s Annual, were informed that the company was in bankruptcy protection and all of its assets will be sold off. As a long-running icon of Canadian snowboarding, it seems unlikely that SBC will disappear, but only time will tell. We will update as we learn more.

UPDATE: Reactions from the people

There was a time, for about a decade or so, when I had at least one photo in every issue of Snowboard Canada Magazine. To see them file for bankruptcy protection is sadly not much of a surprise, but disappointing nonetheless. We’re not losing a magazine, we’re losing the centre of a scene. So many careers, both in front of and behind the camera, in distribution and retail, were born from the influence of those pages. There was a time when pro snowboarders could get paid before they ever had photos in US magazines. It’s going to get even tougher to be a Canadian pro, photographer, or cinematographer now. Good luck shredders.- Dano Pendygrasse

Sad to hear Snowboard Canada Magazine is no longer as of today. After years of reading issue after issue, I was beyond hyped to have one of my first published photos in there! Thanks for the love over the years, and best of luck to all the staff moving forward. – Nic Hirenga

Snowboard Canada’s Glimpse Teaser

Apparently Canada’s snowboard community is suffering from a lack of video projects this season, and according to the folks at Snowboard Canada, “talented riders producing great parts in Canada were left with no real platform to share their skills with the world.” We’ll just assume they’ve never heard of the Internet and say, this movie looks sick.
