It’s Thursday so that means you all are thirsty for… rad news!  We’ve got a couple good things for you all to be stoked on today…

“The East Coast’s Premier Snowboarding Event Series,” The Main Event, is back for its 8th annual season.  Featuring the hottest of the hot in East Coast snowboard talent.  Featuring three stops – Bretton Woods on Jan. 15th, Sugarbush Jan. 29th, and Sugarloaf for the finals Feb. 5th.  SGT is giving away the grand prize for most overall points, a all-expense paid trip to Argentina next summer!  Shane Fortier walked away with it last year after stomping an enormous double back at Stowe, beating out John Murphy by ONE POINT.  It was heated and heavy and every stop was an awesome show.  Anyone who rides one stick in the East and thinks they got some steeze, register for this series.

This just in from Japan…. it’s dumping!

SGT Argentina client Matilde Byskov, who moved from her native Denmark to Japan yesterday for the season, just sent us this video from Niseko, where it’s abosolutely PUKING, as usual.  Need to get on board for one of the best shred trips around to the Far East, check out our Japan trip here

And surprise, surprise… it’s DUMPING in Silverton!  50″ out of this past storm is making us sweat in our NH office staring at the melting snowbanks in this January thaw.

Our client and homie Jake Cohn, now running Unofficial Whistler with SGT filmer and resident fat boy Jon “Officially Fat” Conway, was home in Telluride for the holidays and got to take some laps with SGT guide and NH native “Sneaky” Pete Connolly.  At a balmy -17 degrees farenheit outside, the boys lapped untracked fresh all day at the tail end of the unguided season in Silverton.  Need to get your San Juan fix? Stay tuned to our Silverton Treasure Mountain Hut trip page for one of sickest backcountry adventures in the Lower 48…
