The Roxy Ride Days kicked off in Blue Mountain, Ontario with a sold out event. The event was capped at 60 riders to ensure a comfortable coach-to-camper ratio. Demo boards were out, music was turned up and the Women’s Snowboard Federation (WSF) and Roxy team riders ensured everyone was progressing.
Roxy team rider Samm Denena was there to push the campers, and rounding out the day was a special guest appearance by Erin Comstock who recently celebrated 10 years with the Roxy team. Girls were lined up for half an hour to get an autograph, but what made Erin even more legendary is that she flew from the west coast on a red eye, drove right to the mountain and coached all day, then immediately flew to another snowboard trip. What a pro!
The day was also special day as it marked the 1 year anniversary of team rider Sarah Burke’s passing. Blue Mountain was her old stomping grounds (with Midland, the town where she grew up, not far away) it seemed most fitting that there would be such a large group of girls on snow, progressing, laughing and supporting each other #CelebrateSarah
Congratulations to Dayna Pinkey (Jump Jam Winner), Logan Sager, Bailey McDonald and Cali Sossia (Jib Jam, Small, Medium and Large Feature Winners).
