Mtnops All Mountain Riding Journal
05 Jul, 2008
Mtnops is a brand dedicated to introducing new and different ideas to snowboarding through products that are useful, durable and unique, and marketing that embraces the culture of the sport. For the 2008-2009 season Mtnops is offering a small range of American made clothing and accessories to a limited number of specialty snowboard retailers.
The journal in size is 4 1/3 by 6 inches. As a riding journal it lets you input the date, location, weather & conditions, terrain, riding crew, highlights of the day, notes on gear, notes on riding and notes on stuff you’d like to work on.
I purchased it directly from mtnops here for $12.00, it came packaged in a topographic map and included a variety of mtnops goodies like a wind chill chart/trick list, 2 all-weather mtnop pens and the mtnops dog tag necklace.
I spend at least 10 days of the season doing on-snow demos where I take out a number of different boards plus many more days of the season testing snowboards for Never Summer. This year I rode to date 27 snowboards that were 08-09 models, 13 bindings that are 08-09 models and many more 2007-2008 models of both snowboards and bindings. Being able to take notes and photos on each board/binding helps when it comes to writing reviews.
When I’m on snow for demos, I take multiple pieces of paper and pens but I’ve found that some days it’s harder to write down notes when it’s snowing or raining out. The Mtnops ride journal will make it so I have a demo journal to write down better notes and not worry about the weather conditions limiting my notes. This journal will fit in my cargo pockets and be easy access to writing notes this winter.
Look for mtnops to be launching this fall!
