I RIDE PARK CITY (the movie)
Last fall many of you may have come up to Park City for the premiere of I Ride Park City. I was there, it was an awesome time. The film is unique in the sense that it was filmed entirely at one mountain...Park City Mountain Resort. The movie was created and produced by Jim Mangan, who is our director of Action Sports Marketing, he's the guy who also manages our team of athletes and builds the terrain parks. When he came up with the idea he created more than just a film, but also an anthem that many of our riders and guests can actually say "I RIDE PARK CITY". Here's the film's trailer-
The film was also an official selection of the 2009 X-Dance film festival and was nominated for best soundtrack. We've actually been asked time and time again "What is the name of the song in the trailer" well, it's called "All In It" by British Sea Power. The film's soundtrack is awesome and the riding is sick too, local rider Bode Merrill's part is amazing along with Torstein Horgmo's, Shaun White's and Erin Comstock's. There were plenty of riders that all appear in the film too.
Hey, don't forget to come up this weekend for the Burton Super Demo Tour too. Here's your chance to check out the lastest and greatest from Burton. Check out the new Hero deck over in Pick 'N Shovel or up at Jonsey's, or if we get some fresh snow take out a Malolo or Fish. There's going to be a lot going on during the Demo tour along with testing new gear including giveaways and SCHWAG! SCHWAG! SCHWAG! GALORE!

After a hectic freeski season and competing on an injured knee, Monster Energy freeskier Tom Wallisch found some time at his home resort of Park City in Utah to stack some footage before he underwent season-ending surgery. Watch as he displays why—even at half speed—he's still the best in the game.

The Sochi Games are just days away, and while we'll be rooting hard for every Team USA athlete - from the curlers to the figure skaters - we'll be cheering especially hard for 2 athletes in particular: because they're our very own! Slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and slopestyle freeskier Joss Christensen are both Park City locals and both part of "I Ride Park City" All Stars. Both will be in medal contention, and we couldn't be prouder to have them as representatives to the world both of our mountain and their hometown of Park City.
We saw too much style from the skiers in the park last year to not give them their due. They grab the spotlight in the "IRPC" sequel's premiere outdoors and under the stars September 14.
It's event seaosn. Our first two events are paying out cold, hard cash. Get up here and get paid.
End of the season bangers with Scott Stevens, Mark Edlund Alex Sherman, Alex Rodway, Knut Eliassen, Jordan Morse, Dylan Thompson, Nate Bozung, Spencer Schubert, Kazu Kokubo, Mike Rav, & Brandon Hobush
In Sundance fashion, we are very excited for our own film, "I Ride Park City" to be one of 30 films chosen to be a part of the X-Dance Film Festival.
