PreSeason Snowboarding October 8th, 2011 - Brock Butterfield

A cold moisture storm hit the Wasatch Front with an average of 17" on October 6th, 2011 and I found myself in the garage throwing my Tyrant Teem and bindings together for a mini shred session a few days later.

I called up my standard preseason homies (some of which I never even talk to in the summer but we know it's on when the first snow hits) and we grabbed my 8 year old rotting boxes. After a few upgrades to the box tops we were ready to find a place to get our mini jib on. After seeing the Albion Basin Camprground gate closed we decided we needed to find another place low key so that we could keep the session to ourselves and not have to fight the masses.

In the photo above: Noah and Dan finish setting up the boxes and get ready to strap in.

Mandy Mehler, Jodie Stackhouse and Jacob showed up with my homie Jeremy Tidwell and a snake run idea was born...

Dan and Noah taking a breather. Early season shredding makes you realize how out of shape you can get in the summer...


Here's a quick clip of the small amount of awesomely fun footage we shot.
