Too many snowless months have fallen upon the NYC Board & Ski Community. It’s been too long since the East Coast on-snow crew came together to represent. Too many days have gone by since we’ve all come together, too much pent up energy’s been brewing, it’s too hard to hold back. Something had to give, the OvR Season Kickoff Party was just what the people needed, so we gave it to em’.
IT’S GO TIME!!!
OvR partnered with the Hoods to Woods Foundation to celebrate the kick-off of the 2013/14 snow season. Together we were able to raise fundraising goals for the foundation with the help from our event sponsors: Yes. Snowboards, Giro, The Hundreds, Blades, Shut, Homage, and Skate Brooklyn.
Huge shout out and the primary thanks go out to all the kick ass people who came out to Hotel Chantelle to celebrate with us.
The energy level was high in the crowd while OvR premiered ‘Yes. Missions for it’s exclusive and only NYC screening.’ Watching deep pow sets and big mountain runs really gets the feet pumping and the mind racing for the snow to start falling in the East. And boy is it already falling up North. “It’s gonna be an epic season,” was definitely the quote from the event.
‘Yes. Missions’ Trailer:
People had the chance to win some amazing items, to name a few: Shut and Homage skate decks, Giro goggles, Giro helmets, Blades skate complete setup, limited OvR gear, a full board tune at Skate Brookylyn, a bag from The Hundreds (filled with socks, accessories and an exclusive pair of new kicks)…then of course there’s the brand new snowboard. This year’s kickoff grand prize was the limitedTrouble Andrew board from Yes, not too shabby a pickup…
Sales from the raffle helped Hoods to Woods reach their goal, but the foundation is still looking for support. Please check out Hoods to Woods and help them bring the amazing experience of the mountain to inner city kids by donating what you can.
Big thanks again to everyone who came to show support and celebrate the start of the 2013/14 snow season with us. OvR could not do what it does with out all you amazing people. You have truly become a family to all of us and we look forward to seeing every one again real soon on the mountain.
