Welcome, Dylan Thompson
Look up evolution in the dictionary and you’ll see: “a process of change in a certain direction.”
Nothing better represents that commitment to change and progression than the Park City All Stars and the manner in which these athletes push the envelope of creativity in film and competition. Today the “I Ride Park City” team continues to evolve with the announcement of its newest All Star: Dylan Thompson.
“I have enjoyed riding Park City since I first moved out to Utah and to be joining such a sick team feels really good,” Dylan told us about joining up with the All Stars. We’re glad he’s here.
If you don’t know Dylan’s riding, we look forward to introducing him to you in the edits to come this season. If you do, you know you have a great new reason to stay dialed into the blog.
Dylan’s reputation for versatility distinguishes him as a rider, and the man backs up the rep. “I like riding everything,” he told us. “I mostly film on urban type stuff. I love riding pow and I would like to spend more time filming it in the future. I also ride as much park as I can in between trips.”
Fellow All Star Dan Brisse knows there's a lot to love about Dylan's riding, “This kid’s got so much talent he can pretty much do anything. His urban riding is top notch and I look forward to watching him in years to come.”
Get ready to see a lot of Dylan here this season. Evolution.
3 Kings was set ablaze this past week and the park crew kept us guessing as to what sweet feature would be put in next. Enjoy our 50th opening week!
It was a crazy good time for the opening of Neff Land - check these pix out if you don't believe us.
Saturday evening was a perfect night to grab a chair under the stars on Town Lift Plaza and catch the world premiere of our original snowboard film, "IRPC" - and it turns out a whole lot of you agreed. Chairs went early and our crowd spilled into standing-room-only sections around the plaza deck before overflowing back onto Town Bridge over Park Ave. What a crowd! The film, shot entirely in the terrain parks at Park City Mountain Resort, proves anything is possible when it comes to the creative riding going on here. Did you miss the film's debut, or just can't wait to see it again? "IRPC" will be released in sneak peek edits, once a week through October, right here at the blog before posting in its full length November 1. Check it out!
Utah has always been known as a state that breeds talented rail slayers. The Friday Night Jib Fights series showed that there is no changing of the guard in the future. These kids are determined and know how to drop some hammers.

February has seen some solid night sessions and a gnarly jump line in Quicksilver. Enjoy these selects from the past month and get ready for a night edit from "I Ride Park City" dropping this week.

Quite simply Bode Merrill is the man. He doesn't need two feet strapped in to drop hammers.
