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 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.
The I Ride Park City series charges forward showcasing everything from small side hits to the giant walls of our Superpipe and larger jumps on the King's Crown run. Watch Hans and Nils Mindnich, Stevie Bell, Aaron Biittner, Sam Taxwood, Griffin Siebert, Johnny Brady, Parker Duke, Chris Grenier, Scotty Arnold, Austen Granger, Chris Beresford, Alex Rodway, and Nick Julius show you the diversity in features that I Ride Park City has to offer! Filmed and edited by Pat Fenelon.
There's no right or wrong way to hit this thing.
