As the See it, Try it, Buy it cycle wraps up for the season and everybody looks towards summer for a bit of Sun, Mtn Biking, or Surf. O’Neill Snow, Nidecker Snowboards and Grand Targhee Resort hosted an early preview for key retailers in the Rocky Mtn Territory.
O’Neill Snow and Nidecker Snowboards found winter in full swing at Grand Targhee Ski Resort as they hosted an on-snow product preview coordinated by Justin McGuire and Christina Shepherd of Teton Riders sales. The month long event brought key retailers within the Rockies to Grand Targhee for up close and personal two-day demos of O’Neill and Nidecker’s 03-04 Product. And of course powder like only Grand Targhee can offer.
“When you’re planning an on-snow event, obviously snow conditions play an extremely important role in getting a true feel of how gear will perform. Yet, so often Grand Targhee is overlooked in favor of the bigger name resorts,” said Daniel Pistoresi resort spokesperson. “The resort’s intimate nature and full service amenities combined with its Teton setting insure an ideal winter experience for companies and groups of all sizes.” Retailers from around the Rockies included crews from Marine Products, Colorado Boarder, the Other Side, The Boardroom – Boise, the Boardroom – Denver, Skiers Edge, Elements, Bubbas Boards, and many others.
The event was so successful that Grand Targhee invited Nidecker Snowboards to help celebrate in the opening of the resort’s new terrain park. To the applause of all riders, the resort now has the first phase complete in its addition of progressive features to supplement the resort’s dependable snow. Consisting of spines, mailboxes, rainbows, and rails of all sorts, the park will host its first Slopestyle event on March 15th, sponsored in part by Nidecker Snowboards. Nidecker riders will be on hand to pre-run the course and put on an exhibition for the crowd.
In this competitive industry, it’s refreshing when simple partnerships can still be created around a mutual love. Fun, sun and epic snow was had by all. A Big Mahalo to everybody that attended the event and especially to Grand Targhee resort for once again having some of the best snow in the country!
