Name – Charlie Hoch
Local Mountain – Wolf Creek/Silverton
Fav Board and Why? – I ride the SL and Revolver depending on the day and what terrain I’m riding. The RC tech kills it in any snowpack from groomer to blower pow. So really both boards can be rode on either terrain, but sometimes you want the stiffer board for the steeps and sometimes you just want a little extra bend in ‘er, ya know.
Fav Riding Spot – The San Juan mountains north to south, and wherever there’s good people and good snow.
Sponsors- Never Summer, Smith Optics, Bonfire, Summit Ski and Sports
Thanks To – Mom and Dad, Bruce, Jeremiah and the cabin crew, Gags and the whole NS family, Jake P. and Axel, Anders P., Mike Thomas, Mike Hardaker, Moss, Terry “The Rat” Ratzlaff, shout out to all the Durango homies and the employees and good friends at Wolfy!
Words of Wisdom – Through and through, the turns stay true. Ride Always.
Name – Ryan Stephens
Local Mountain – Mount Hood
Favorite board – Legacy, because a 56 will float me in pow and still have a lot of fun in the park, while not slowing transition from edge to edge down on groomers
Favorite Riding Spot – Mt. Saint Helens, Mount Adams, Eastern Oregon. The northwest in general and anywhere I’m chest deep in pow landings!!
Sponsors – Neversummer, Trew Gear / sponsors are not really what snowboarding is about for me; but ill take’em
Thanks To – everyone!! The list would be too long and soo many people have helped me along the way!! So i’m just sayin’ mom and dad!
Words of Wisdom – Excuses are like assholes, everyone’s got em but don’t nobody wanna admit it!
