Surf To Snow: Episode 3 Snow Adventures with Torah Bright Colorado with Olay Fresh Effects!


It’s off to Aspen in the 3rd episode of the ‘Surf To Snow’ series, and no snow adventure would be complete without the queen of snowboarding and Olympic gold medalist Torah Bright in on the action.

Ice skating (or something close), toboggan riding, hot cocoa drinking and a day packed with snowboarding help round out this episode in snowy Colorado.  We know the previous episode had you looking forward to warmer weather, but we’re thinking the cold might be winning back our hearts…how about yours?

It was only befitting that today’s Twitter giveaway was a Roxy snowboard (yep, the one Torah rides), a pair of Bright Edition goggles and an Olay Gift Pack!

Roxy Ride Days: 1st ever Mammoth Mountain stop

Unknown

This past weekend Mammoth Mountain, California was host to the first ever Roxy Ride Days stop in the good ol’ U.S.A. For the past few winters our friends to the North have been operating the Roxy Ride Days series to sold-out crowds all across Canada, so it was about time we brought the camp to American snow. Female shredders from all over California and points beyond flocked to Mammoth for the chance to progress their skills alongside Roxy pro riders and an expert all-girl coach staff in a fun & supportive environment. Our pro snowboard team happily took time out of their busy schedules to join in the fun, including backcountry pow(d)erhouse Robin Van Gyn, Transworld Magazine’s Rookie of the Year winner Corinne Pasela, and Roxy legend Erin Comstock.

After a tasty breakfast and a yoga stretch session the girls broke off into groups and headed up the lifts. The sun shined down on the riders all day as they pushed one another in the soft forgiving snow. While cruising around having fun in the sun, the girls also had the opportunity to sneak-a-peak and demo the future 2013/14 Roxy snowboard line.

In the afternoon everyone participated in games of R-O-X-Y (just like the game H-O-R-S-E), stepping it up on boxes and jumps of various sizes. The winning last-girls-standing included Patty Ho (Beginner Jib Group), Patricia Kent (Intermediate Jib Group), Cassidy Campbell (Intermediate Jump Group), Kaleah Driscoll (Advanced Jib Group) and Janice Spiteri (Advanced Jump Group). The girls rode until the lifts shut down and then gathered at the Roxy base for tunes, hot chocolate, Roxy pro poster signing, and a ton of prize giveaways. Nora Carlsson went home a happy camper as the lucky winner of a Roxy XOXO snowboard and binding combo. Shout out to our friends at Paul Mitchell who helped make the day extra awesome and hooked up the attendees with loads of Paul Mitchell hair products.

All in all the day was a huge success and everyone went home with huge smiles on their faces. If you missed the Roxy Ride Days this year, be sure to join the fun and come ride with us next winter!

Roxy Ride Days: 3rd Canadian stop at Grouse Mountain, BC

The Roxy Ride Days cross Canada tour entered it’s third of four stops Saturday, March 16 at Grouse Mountain, in North Vancouver, to a third straight sold out crowd of female riders. Roxy Canada riders Joanie Robichaud and Marie-Andree Racine Gagnon and Roxy pro and backcountry boss, Robin Van Gyn, joined the Women’s Snowboard Federation coaches to inspire the participants. The weather was on the heavy side of “dewy” but neither the campers, the coaches nor the Roxy pros were phased and by the end of the day the sun won the struggle and the infamous Grouse city view showed itself. Vitamin D victory!

The welcome visibility upped the trick level for the afternoon game of R.O.X.Y. (based on the rules of H.O.R.S.E. or S.K.A.T.E.). The four riders that received the “fewest letters” were Evelien Langerwerf (Small Box), Vanessa Agonos (Intermediate Box), Tina Chiu (Intermediate Jump) and the super stylish Angelisa Edwards (Advanced Group). Special high fives go to Vanessa Agonos for high-fiving 20 girls, while jibbing, after her box victory.  The photo below does a better job explaining this.

Speaking of winners, there can only be one winner of a shiny new Roxy Ollie Pop snowboard. Drawing names out of a hat left two girls standing and the winner to be determined by a ‘crab race’ and ‘leg wrestle’. Robin Van Gyn played umpire and the room took on a hilarious snowboard-meets-cage-fighting vibe. A fun end to a memorable day at Grouse Mountain! Next camp is at Lake Louise, AB on March 30 followed by Mammoth Mountain, CA on April 6. For more information and to register, please visit RoxyRideDays.com.

Make a Break for It: Spring Break in Park City with Torah Bright

Tear up the mountains Park City, Utah, where locals and Olympic champions converge on the gondolas and riders from around the world race for first tracks fame. Our friends at the excellent travel website Fathom, along with pro snowboarder Torah Bright, weigh in with a few top picks for apres-board plus an entire Park City-perfect collection on Roxy.com.

Suit Up

If you’re Torah Bright, you’re heading to the mountains in your Bright Collection snowboarding gear, and of course your Eminence C2 BTX Snowboard and Torah Bright Bindings.

Warm Up

Check into one of the 12 rooms (ok, super deluxe suites) at the historic Washington School House Hotel that is know for its pancakes and modern luxuries.

“The best surprise? Waking up to fresh powder. Nothing can beat that.” – Torah Bright

Cool Down

Recover from a day on the mountain with massages that target tired legs and feet, oxygen inhalation therapy, or Nordic-inspired detox soaks at Stein Ericsson Lodge Spa.

Carry On

Snowmobile your way to the The Viking Yurt where a multicourse stick-to-your-ribs dinner starts off right with a pewter goblet of glogg.

Take It In

Rate the views from the top of Alta, Snowbird, Canyons, Park City, or Deer Valley. “Check out the mountain view patio fire pits at the St. Regis.” – Torah Bright

Don’t Miss Out

Time-travel along Park City’s historic Main Street. Original building facades fronting boutiques, restaurants, and bars make it feel like an old mining town. “I always bring my friends who are here for the first time for a stroll up historic Main street, it’s got something for everyone.” – Torah Bright

Roxy Ride Days 2013 kicks off at Blue Mountain in Ontario

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).
