Downtown Beach Snow Day

We were lucky enough to have some snow fall in downtown Vancouver a few weeks ago. Rob Morrison and I wasted no time to setup a rail in English Bay that we have been eyeing for a while.  Who said beach days are just for the summer?  With more snow scheduled for the weekend, we may get a few more days in the city.

Capilano University: UnCapped Rail Jam Re-Cap

Try and say that title three times fast...

The Grouse Parks crew took a couple toys over to Capilano University on Thursday for the Uncapped Rail Jam, and nobody had more fun! The sun was peaking out, and it actually wasn't that cold for once. The Monster Energy drinks were flowing and the DJ was on point. Everyone got down with the free chilli and coconut curry, and that garlic bread was so damn tasty that it was gone faster than fresh tracks on The Cut. Most of all, the features and the vibes were chill AF! After 2 hours of solid shredding, the results were:

Snowboarding:

  1. Adrian Tongko (Grouse Team)
  2. Mark Bramwell (Grouse Park Crew)
  3. Sterling Storey (Grouse Team)

Skiing:

  1. Yukon Deleeuw
  2. Robin Paed

Despite the low-light conditions, Edwin managed to come away with some pretty sick shots! He even gave us a bonus feature: the 'Ghetto iPhone Clip Reel'. Marcus and I were also busy stacking footy on our Instagram (@grouseparks) and Snapchat (@grouse_park) stories.

Big ups to Sterling for a good laugh with that hand plant / cart wheel / steam roller / whatever that was! Also, thank you to the contestants, audience, reps, and park crews for holding it down! Until next time...

Side Cut Park - Top to Bottom

What's up all you park riders!?

Andrew Santos here, back in action and stoked to be blogging! I've been fortunate to do quite a bit of traveling over the past few months, 38 countries in Europe to be exact. I got to explore a lot, but nothing compares to our local mountains. I couldn't wait to get back and ride, and that's exactly what I've been up to. Plus, with all the snow we've been getting, it's been an unreal start to the season.

Given the amount of snow, the park crew have been on point with the Grouse parks. To prove it, the first week of January I went up with Grouse Pro team riders Zac Dolesky, Alex Jordan, and Sterling Storey. We filmed a top to bottom of the Side Cut Park, and managed to get this on our second go. Check it out! 

Peace!
