Hey! Jeremy Mountain here. Just wanted to reach out to everyone and thank you all for coming to our 2015/16 Kickoff Party that went down last week at The DL.
It was a pretty epic time, A LOT of people came out to represent the NYC Snow scene. Its always exciting for me to see all of my winter friends out and about.
Burton came in full force with a squad from their NYC flagship store, and brought a board and a whole bag of goodies along with ’em. We had booths from Arc’teryx and MNMNT, and reps from Nitro and Launch who all threw a bunch of gear into our raffle. All of the proceeds went to Hoods To Woods, a foundation bringing under-served youth from the city to the mountains.
This was not only our biggest party yet but it was also the biggest raffle to date. We gave away four boards. FOUR BOARDS! Also some jackets, goggles, decks and hoodies from Homage, a pair of bindings from Aegir Boardsports, a few lift tickets to Big Boulder, and a ton OvR gear.
I had a great time on stage, rockin’ the mic, but my favorite part by far was just hurling gear into the audience. I don’t know if you’ve ever had the chance to look out onto a crowd and every single person looking back wants the kitty cat neck gater in your hand, but if you haven’t I’d highly recommend it.
After the raffle we premiered the L1 Premium Goods video Americana which was super dope, it truly amazes me how crazy snowboarding has become. It seemed that every other trick in the video was absolutely crazy. I was just watching in awe thinking about how I’m definitely gonna try that this season and knowing that I’ll end up on my back but it will be worth it. From then the party just escalated until we all found ourselves funneling outside to go get some late night Burger King (this was me) or go over to Max Fish for another drink (this was everyone else).
If you did miss the party than I apologize but I’m sure we’ll be seeing you all very soon. Our first day up is this coming Saturday 11/21 to Killington and I could not be more excited (except that I just realized I need to was my board f***!). I hope to see you guys on the hill, where I’ll be trying to huck back threes till my ass goes numb.
Hope to see everyone up on the hill soon!
