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.
The Holy Bowly has begun and the best of the best are here showing us what true progression is.

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.

Get ready for some HOT snowboard action in this month's Every Third Thursday! Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew get back to the base-ics, experimenting with new technology to actually heat up the base of a snowboard and test out their theory that a hot base will go faster. Dave explains that the snow sliding action actually works from friction heating up the snow and forming a thin layer of water that the board slides on, but what if we speed up that process by incorporating a heat film into the base? Watch as Dave dials the base all the way up to 128-degrees and snowboarder Alex Cato heats up the slopes of Park City Resort.
We put together a stairset to match the one on the Sochi Winter Games slopestyle course. It looks like practice makes perfect.
