Dave Boldwin, better known as Danger, has pretty much lived out of a suitcase for the past couple years. Constantly on the road, this adventure seeking Vermonter is our Head Snowboard Coach and resident ginger. Danger Dave has spent this entire season traveling the globe, prepping his amazing athletes for the top competitions, and rocking out at a karaoke bar near you. Let’s take a minute and see what this sharp dressed halfpipe maniac has been up to this winter.I moved to Breck this winter. It marks my first full year not living in Vermont. Although it didn’t snow very much, I did get to ride one of the best parks in the world and feel my riding is better than it’s been in almost 10 years because of it. This is the view of Peaks 1 and 2 from the porch of my apartment.
The Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships turned “29 again” this winter. Superhumans Elena Hight, Jamie Anderson, and former campers Shaun White and Louie Vito topped the podiums while common folk grazed for free stuff at the sponsor tents. Method Man and Redman played a concert for VIP Open goers and, as always, too much fun was had.
Vermont is home to the O.G. (Original Gangster) of snowboarding contests. The 29th annual Burton US Open came to a close this week in Stratton, VT after yet another memorable competition series.
Athletes from all over the world were greeted by the rain and slush of an East Coast winter. Sopping wet spectators watched as their favorite competitors and Windells coaches threw down, despite the gloomy conditions. Thanks to all those who came out and showed their support!
The Windells vans are loading up and heading your way! Competition season is in full swing and we would love nothing more than to throw some swag at your face. Hang out at the Windells tent while you watch your favorite riders win gold. Where are we going next? Check out the information below and come visit Windells on the road!
