Ketchum, Idaho--Smith Optics welcomes Scotty Lago to their world class snowboard line up. Lago is recognized as one of the brightest young talents in the professional snowboarding world. At seventeen years young, Scotty is absolutely in the right position to dominate as he continues to develop his pipe and park skills. Scotty’s editorial coverage thus far in ’05 is nothing short of impressive; multiple spreads, an eight page interview and most recently the cover of TransWorld SNOWboarding. Scotty just missed wining the best overall rider at last years Team Challenge held in Aspen Colorado. “I’m really excited about being on the Smith program, I had no idea their goggles were so superior and I am super stoked to be on the same team as Mason Aguirre--we’re always riding together and pushing one another said Scotty.
Presently Smith’s Snowboard team is a blizzard of original talent including Jussi Oksanen, Eddie Wall, Kelly Clark, Travis Kennedy, Drew Fuller, Hana Beaman, Mason and Molly Aguirre, Louie Fountain, Steven Fisher, Brett Butcher, Keenan Rice, Mike Casanova and Wyatt Caldwell to name a few.
