Snowboard Canada 2011 Buyers’ Guide Issue Out Now

Aug 25, 2010

Author: Scott Birke

The new Buyers' Guide issue of Snowboard Canada is in the hands of subscribers right now and on stands early next week. Here's a look at what's inside.

On The Cover On an Alterna trip to Aspen, Colorado last season, photographer Jussi Grznar put some serious trust in Chris Rasman by strapping a week-old $4,000-camera to his hand before sending him off a 60-footer for this shot. “Rasman stomped every single hit and I was never happier to get my camera back,” says Jussi.

Inside This Issue:

2011 Buyers’ Guide 32 pages of boards, boots, bindings and more. Plus 36 pros help you find the setup that’s best for you.

 

Export Eh: Like some of the country’s biggest bands, Canadians Devun Walsh, Chris Dufficy, Annie Boulanger, L.N.P. and Simon Chamberlain have gone from the local scene to the world stage. Thankfully, none of them have Chad Kroeger mouth-donuts.

Ben Bilocq: Silent Killer We’re not sure how Jess Kimura got Ben Bilocq to talk for this interview, but we think it had something to do with a threatening trip to the tanning salon.

Steve Cartwright: Easy style “Dude, grooming is definitely important to the ladies. If the bushes start overtaking the tree you need to start clearing the jungle. Plus, it makes your penis look bigger.”

Dude Ranch Days after the Olympics, we jolt Jeff Batchelor, Brad Martin and Jesmond Dubeau out of their element for a backcountry retreat at Powder Cowboy, B.C.

Best Contest Ever: Win Andrew Geeves’ Gear

Andrew Geeves is part of the new wave of Canadian riders flooding the international scene. Over the past three years Geeves produced back-to-back openers in Sandbox’s Wear It Well and All Day Everyday followed by a part in Standard’s Black Winter. In 2009 he generated enough media coverage to crack the top 50 of Transworld’s Exposure Meter. You might expect a 20-year-old in his position to be straight ballin’ out of control in Whistler. Instead Geeves moved into a house his parents bought in a remote B.C. town where snowmobiles provide the only winter access (okay,  he still gets tipsy now and then, or as he would call it, “getting rock lobstered”). His plan is to follow in the sled tracks of legends Johan Olofsson and Alan Clark, who bought property next door several years earlier to live with the backcountry at their doorstep. The decision is ballsy for someone on the come up, but true to what he plans to do—carve his own path. Follow the jump to win.
