Bruizzapalooza Day 1

22 Jan, 2010

The sierrasnowboard community started Bruizzapalooza last year and this year Steamboat Springs, Colorado is one of five stops for meet-ups and shred sessions.  Over 100 members made their way to Steamboat on Friday and will be riding together this weekend.  I met up with everyone at the evening’s cocktail party to meet and greet for the night.

It’s pretty amazing to see members from online communities come together and meet up in person.  You might not know Matt but you know his member name Mattaleo so it’s always funny at introductions.  I was able to meet members and they know me as shayboarder so it was fun to put names to faces especially when they have commented on the blog.

After the cocktail party died down, we made our way to Tugboat to end the evening with music and drinks before calling it a night.

We’ll be shredding bright and early on Saturday so looking forward to riding with everyone and hopefully we get some snow!

    You should ask sierra snowboard how they feel about flooding the market with off price boards before they’re allowed to. Lowering the value of customers purchasing snowboards from the brick and mortar shops who bust ass to try and keep their shops alive. Slowing killing the value in purchasing anything snowboard hardgoods related online. Not very supportive to the industry as a whole if you ask me.

    Could you imagine a world with no shops and all online snowboard shops? That’s the reality if sites like that stay alive and manufacturers keep allowing them to do it EVERY year. Tisk tisk. Everyone is out to make a quick buck. Bringing down the value of snowboard hardgoods as a whole. Bringing down the value of snowboarding as a whole.

    Hey Shay this was the 3rd year of Bruizzapalooza 😉

    Brick and Mortar Sierra Snowboard has a Brick and Mortar store…… Why not price your stuff competitively or start an online site of your own??? What event are you putting on Brick and Mortar to bring over 100 snowboarders together to shred that in turn makes the entire snowboarding community better?
