Log Masters is more than just an annual snowboarding event that takes place in a secret location in the woods of Beaver Creek. It’s a day that people look forward to every year. Log Masters is the end all be all ‘for us by us’ snowboarding event in the world. Some would say that it’s the only true snowboard event. The only one that matters. The crowds gathered and the riders logged… Congratulations to Never Summer Team Rider Rick Rodriquez on taking home the Green Jacket!

Billy Rodriquez spent the last month on the road traveling through the MidWest on snowboard camp tour. The road is hard. Billy missed Christmas and New Years with his family but being able to spread the good word of snowboarding and stoke out all those kids more than made up for that.
Every year the Loveland Retailer Demo serves as the first gathering of the tribes around Colorado.

Well, they can’t all be winners… We’ve compiled some of the best crashes captured while filming the Never Summer Snowboard team over the last couple of years. Now you know why DeCicco looks like that haha. All I want to know is was that noise at 2:13 the sound of skull vs metal?
The long awaited arrival of the Never Summer Signature Terrain Park Feature to Loveland Ski Area happened today! This year Never Summer has built 6 new terrain park features at our factory in Denver, Colorado. Since Loveland is the closest resort to Denver to receive a feature this year we decided to make the first drop at Loveland. We were so psyched to work with Loveland on this. Stay tuned for the announcement of a contest on the NS Roller at Loveland and for future Never Summer Signature Feature deliveries. This is gonna be big!
It’s Never Summer at Windells! Just ask Jake Williams, Nick Decicco, Chris Lynch and Jason Hindman. Technically I guess it is summer, but Windells had better snow in July than most places have in April. Here in Colorado we’ve been shredding for a couple of weeks now (sorry everywhere else) but we figured we’d throw this edit out there to get the rest of the world stoked for the season. A big, special thanks to Tim Windell for the passes and the awesome shredding!

Wolf Creek Ski Area opened on Saturday October 8th and claimed the “1st Opened” title usually taken by ABasin or Loveland. Never Summer hard chargers Micah, Gags, Joey, and Nick woke up at 3am to make the four hour drive to shred on the official first day of the season. This wasn’t the typical day one…a man made ribbon of death. Wolf Creek opened with three feet of powder! The guys spent the day shredding pow, drank a few post epic day brews, and drove all the way home. Here’s hoping everyday this season is this good!
Never Summer Premiere this friday at Summit Music Hall in downtown denver!
