Snowcial + Heavenly 2/28/13

When it came time to decide on what conference to attend this year, Snowcial was the one I really wanted to have happen. Mainly because it brings together many of the ski resorts and marketers whose passions lie in skiing and snowboarding. Not only that, Snowcial brings in incredible guest speakers that make you think outside the box and try to become better snow marketers. This was technically my third year of at...

The end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013

At this time last year, I had no idea what to expect for 2012. But I embraced the unknown and ended up traveling to many events, mountains and crossing many items off the bucket list. 2012 was an amazing year, definitely one for the books and I still can't believe how lucky I was to experience so many great opportunities. I look forward to the new experiences, stories, travels and fun that 2013 can bring. Here are...

Back to the Grind Rail Jam 11-3-12

Almost two months ago, I arrived in Colorado just in time to watch the first Rail Jam of the season and for Opening Weekend I got to help out at the second rail jam of the season. Last time I was meeting future co-workers and this time I was helping them out. I loaded up the camera and headed out to watch the action and share it on social media for Keystone. [singlepic id=14668 w=500 h=333 float=] The setup was a f...

Voleurz “Kill Your Boredom” in Aspen

The Meeting 8 has been going on in Aspen over the past couple days and on Saturday, Voleurz kicked off the films at the Wheeler Opera House. It was hard to leave the Limelight pool patio but we managed to get inside just in time to watch the beginning of "Kill your Boredom." I've known of Voleurz for a couple years now. They have really rad clothing and they do an amazing job of filming the Whistler scene and mountai...

TGR & Jeremy Jones "Further" in Aspen

For the last two days, I've been holed up in a little town called Aspen for The Meeting 8. It's where the beer flows like wine, where tons of ski and snowboard films are shown and where many from the skiing and snowboarding industry gather to discuss ideas/conversations and good times. This was my second time attending the Meeting and I'm glad to be here on behalf of Keystone Resort. Last night was the showing of ...

Backyard BBQ Rail Session at Keystone 9/15/12

It's hard to imagine a pile of snow, let alone 10 tons of snow on a 70 degree September day in Summit County, Colorado, but the first rail jam of the season kicked off at Keystone Resort with just that. The Keystone park crew built three rideable features for local skiers and snowboarders to have a jam session to kick off the upcoming season. It was an easy decision to take a break from unpacking and organizing an...

Colorado Bound!

Over the past 9 months I've been on an incredible journey. I spent the winter living out of my snowboard bag and luggage as I traveled around the Western United States and Canada on the hunt for powder. In those 9 months, I was scared and excited but I learned to embrace change. That journey has helped lead me to my next one. I'm so excited to be moving back to Colorado to join the marketing team at Keystone Resort. ...

Adventuring on Orcas Island

One of the best perks about launching a new version of shayboarder.com is being able to share travel experiences that go beyond snowboarding. It's been years since I've been to the San Juan Islands and even longer since I was on Orcas Island so when I got the text that I was invited for a mini-vacation, I immediately changed my plans to make it happen. Accessible by ferry, Orcas Island is a true waterfront island ...
