Northstar is definitely winning the viral video ads war for ski resorts. This latest touching little piece follows 13-year-old Toby Miller through the doldrums of his off season as he gets ready for the lifts to start spinning.
From the desk of Liberty Mountain Snowflex:
Every Fall we train a group of students from our university who have never snowboarded before and we have them compete in their very own competition. In short, we train them at an accelerated pace for competition. The results are never short of amazing, the students who two months ago were putting their bindings on backwards can now frontside 270 onto a single barrel rail. I know the stigma that the industry has about Snowflex, I’ve heard that it has aids, and that we are all crazy Christians down here in Central Virginia. I ask that you look past that and consider what we are doing here. We are training 10 students to snowboard at a pace that will guarantee that they be hooked on the sport for the rest of their lives. This has happened in the previous years, many of whom continued to train and now compete at the highest level of competition we have. Consider that these 10 from this year do the same, what impact does this have on the industry over the continuation of their life?
Training. You hate it, sponsors love it. These two dudes definitely spend a fair amount of time perfecting their moves. Which one do you think has a better chance at making the olympic team?
