tilledog Posted November 15, 2005 Report Share Posted November 15, 2005 First off, thanks to Fin for all the posting he lets us do on his forum. Thanks also to y’all for tolerating us. This is the most concentrated group of Alpine Snowboarders in the world and this meeting place really helps us get the word out to people about the goings on in Utah and around and our effort to grow the Alpine Snowboard world. My first Summit Expression was this past season. I had heard of it, upon inception and started to follow it here, on Bomberonline soon after. I have seen it grow only in text and pictures. Billy and I loaded the truck on a Wed evening and bolted for the SES last season. Words can’t describe it if you have any love for our sport. My jaw hung off my face for 72 hrs straight. Our Wasatch Trenchin’ Convention would be having it’s 2nd year in a few weeks after our initial SES. The work put forth by Michelle and Fin to have the SES both logistically and physically is truly amazing but really let me know that we had a lot of work to do…. Jeff named the WTC, on a lift ride of course, and it stuck. Billy and Skully actually had the initial Utah Expression Session. I can remember Skully bugging me like crazy the next season to get my $hit together for #1 WTC. I had kinda committed but Hardbooter was barely an entity so it was pretty small. Mostly just people who knew each other getting together for a session. The first year, we met at Max’s snowboard shop, traded boards around played with binders and went ridin’. Our event last season though was a bit more complicated. We set up a tent, got insurance, had waivers and introduced a whole slew of Utah riders to the alpine world thanks to the logistical input from Michelle. Fin attended and brought all his goodies with him for 2 of the 4 days. We’re going to put our foot down this year for him to match our days at the SES, eh Fin? As the interest in Alpine grows, so will all the the “timed” and planned congregations. In only 2 years, we went from very few riders to a bunch. It’s pretty neat to watch what is happening to our sport. Alpine is not dead! Soooooooo…. To make a long thread short, The Wasatch Trenchin’ Convention will be Wed the 1rst of Feb thru Sunday the 5th. Exact format is TBD but will follow closely last years event. Park City Mountain Resort and Snowbasin will be the host resorts. As mentioned previous, Fin will be out and, between us, we’ll have demos galore. This is the place on our site to see details as they come. If you don’t make our event, please, for your own mental state, go to the East Coast Expression Session or the Summit Expression Session! It’ll just absolutely blow your face off!! Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
