Epic spring conditions ruled as Signal Snowboards took over June Mountain for a week long get together of riders, employees, distributors, shops, reps and friends. It was kind of a last minute deal but they still had great turnout with people coming in from North America, South America, New Zealand, and Japan. Good times were had as some folks rode from 9 a.m. till 8 p.m. and partied till closing time at June Lake’s Tiger Bar to boot. Work was also done as people talked business and got both video and photos handled. Of course everyone got to check out the new line of snowboards and give feedback straight to the people that make the boards. Many friends and Mammoth/June locals also came along for the shredding too. The Signal team lapped the park all day and then when the lifts closed they went to work on some custom features built by June Mountain. Everything ended in a big party, literally as the last day of the trip coincided with the final Taco Tuesday of the year, June’s weekly on hill party. The June Lake Villager Hotel helped with some deals on lodging so everyone had a place sleep and work when not on the hill. So yea, a week of work but is it really work when your doing something you love, snowboarding?
