Hi there!

We hope you are having a blast and making the most out of this summer!

Here at the snowbroader HQ, we are getting ready for the action and are busy redesigning snowbroader.eu for the coming winter season so that you guys can have an even better session than last year!

In the meanwhile, surf through our archives and check out our BrOADER TV episodes to relive some of the action from 2006/07!
Have a look especially at all of our posts from ISPO2007 if you want to discover some of the hot gear that you will find in the snowshops this fall. We have more than 30 brands covered for you!

Anyway, if you want to be sure not to miss any of the action, you can send us an email at hello[at]snowbroader.eu and we’ll let you know as soon as we are back on tracks! 

That’s it for now, see you in the fall for a brand new session!

Here’s a little clip from MMPfilms showing what Thomas Harstad, Christian Halland and their photographer IJ experienced when they where filming at mt.rose a couple of days ago. Take it as a lesson and be always aware of the consequences when hitting the backcountry! Fortunately nothing happened to the guys and they could enjoy the rest of their trip. That’s it for today, respect mother nature and stay safe!

demoniumlogo.jpgHead out to Switzerland for some of the best snowboard summer camps in Europe!

btnsnow.jpgSpending a summer in Norway is a dream come true for a lot of dudes.
Make it happen and bring together two of the best things in life: beautiful girls and snowboarding?!

Check out the Snowboard Summer Camp in Stryn, from the 18th to 22nd of June 2007, and in Folgefonna where Nixon presents the 12th season of snowboard summer camps to be held there.

This year, camps will be better than ever with more activities, more pro riders, more suprises but keeping the same laid back attitude that makes this the camp with soul…

Hey, it’s really time to quit the ride for this year and concentrate on the beach, but for addicts out there who didn’t get enough days on the slopes or want to practise new tricks in the best conditions, we decided to prepare a quick round-up of Summer camps which will be held in Europe. Today we start with the camps in Les 2 Alpes!

btzlogo.jpgAfter CHILLing last year, H8 productions and the Advita crew have been working hard on their new video which will be out in fall 07. Due to lack of snow in Europe, the guys had to travel a lot to find the right spots to express their styles. So this film will be about all their adventures, good and bad.

Check out their first teaser and head to their website for more videos, rider presentations and goodies.

As they say on their website “Focus is a raw and aggresive look into the lives of snowboarders trying to make a career out of something they love so much. Let us take you on an artistic journey into the lives of a few individuals and their circle of friends who are all on different paths but are all connected by snowboarding. This film will document a winter of their triumphs and failures and why they put so much blood, sweat and years into this winter passion. People, who struggle through many things in life just so they can snowboard. People with everything to lose and possibly nothing to gain: people brought together by one focus – snowboarding.”

Watch their teaser:

Freesteal II

AKTAES, a french multimedia agency has produced an interesting first episode Freesteal I, with good riders such as Nico Watier & Xavier Marcoud. Freesteal II is the second opus of this trilogy dedicated to snowboarding. It will be available next season but you can already have a look at the teaser here!!

The Isenseven crew is working hard on their up-coming movie “Übermovie“. In 2 weeks people who live close to Munich will have the chance to see it before everyone else at the Pleasure Season’s End Party at the Badeanstalt, 12th of May.

However today it’s time for a new monthly clip: IDIOTS part 2.
It’s the sequel to last year’s popular “Idiots” clip that you can download now at www.isenseven.de!

We painted ourselves some holes to fall inside.
2 minutes packed with cheerfulness, foolishness and idiocy.
Our misfortune shall be your joy!


Picture This

Take 16 of the best snowboarders in the world, the hardest working crew of cinematographers in the industry and one of the worst snow years in memory! PICTURE THIS is the next 07 MDP film, and watching the teaser we can’t stand to wait a few months more !!!

One night in hell for Sebastien LouvetAfter crossing the Alps in 2004, and then the Nice – Chamonix treck in 2006, the French snowboarder Seb Louvet, is getting ready for a new challenge : Monetiers-les-Bains – La Grave in one night and one day…through the “Dôme des Ecrins” and “La Meije”!! If the weather is ok, it is planned for the 3rd and 4th may.

To prepare this trip which includes more than 6500m height, more than if you walk up 23 times to the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower at more than 2000m above the sea level, Seb made many trecks during the winter.
It’s better to be super trained to make 24 hours of non-stop rise and downhill in the middle of these mythical summits!
Equiped with approach skis for going uphill, Seb needs a light equipment on his back. He’s got a Rossignol setting : Works 162 snowboard, Works Carbon bindings and Revolve boots.

Snowboarders aren’t all chairlift’s addict !!

mmp_logo1.jpgThe guys at MellowMoodProductions say qon-itschi-wah!
They have edited their second podcast about their recent trip to Japan.

So get comfortable and join Thomas Harstad, Stefan Maurer, Sanchez and Vinzenz Lüps on their journey. Figure out what it’s about to be stuck at airports, eat some of the best food in the world or ride the infamous japanese-pow-pillows.

Of course it’s just a little taste and tease, more to come in their new movie appearing fall 2007. Arigato!

nicopopcorn.jpgIn his inimitable smooth style, under glorious spring weather, Nicolas Mueller (SUI) claimed the first-ever Slopestyle title of TTR THREE(3)STAR Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride, held at Saas-Fee, Switzerland, 19th-22nd April, 2007.

The last major professional event on the Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour 06/07, the Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride delivered a perfect and worthy ending to the snowboard season. As bikini-clad bodies bronzed in hot sun on the beach-styled Popcorn Plaza at the Saas-Fee Spielboden glacier run, riders went all-out to enjoy the super-fun Slopestyle park designed by local Swiss stars, Frederik Kalbermatten (SUI) & Marco Schwab (SUI). Starting with a cliff-drop, the course included a huge table-jump, a roller-jump, a step-up manual box and snow-box. Two qualification heats of 15 cut into a 12-man Super Final where each finalist received a share of the 10,000USD prize purse. Judges marked riders during the Slopestyle jam sessions based on overall impression through the course.

Hard-pushed to judge the striking line-up of European snowboard talent, it was Nicolas Mueller’s (SUI) creativity, fluidity and variety of tricks that set him apart from his peers. Mueller’s (SUI) stylish runs included a neat 540 off the cliff-drop, a Cab 900 Japan and snow-box jibbing – the only rider to do so.

If you haven’t heard about Scalp it means you haven’t been snowboarding on the same planet as us.

Scalp has been on the scene since the birth of snowboarding in Europe and has been showcasing it’s evolution year after year through his photography.
Senior photographer for Onboardmag and active with other magazines and brands, Scalp is a unique character in the industry. We were stocked sitting down with him for a beer and listening to what he had to tell us about his life, photography and snowboarding.

Kick back and press play for our latest video interview on BrOADER TV!

LongBoard Classic pic 1 There exists a species of snowboarder that is more associated with the Gods of board sports than other riders. Most of them can recall times when they were skidding down the mountains on their homemade boards. This species is difficult to find today – or maybe it’s just too modest to reveal its true identity and heritage – although it embodies the backbone of the snowboard scene.
Once a year The Longboard Classic gets them crawling out of their holes and banding together. Once a year they do what their code and common sense forbids: hundreds of them drop into a face at the same time!
After a Le Mans-style mass start at the height of 2,408m, riders will hammer their way down 1,001 metres of off-piste to the village of Stuben (1407m).
So, if you have the heart of a shredder and an old school board or a board longer than 170 cm in your garage, you should instantly register !!

April 21, 2007 – Longboard Classic in Stuben, Arlberg
Fee: Euro 45. Includes lift ticket, event shirt, lunch and beverage
