The Stash

30 Sep

This winter, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming will have some new features to offer riders with the completion of the first Stash in the Rockies.

Burton Snowboards, Jackson Hole, pro riders, Snow Park Technologies, and the local Stash park crew have been working on the terrain park that features only natural elements. The Stash is only located at five other resorts worldwide: Northstar-at-Tahoe, USA; Avoriaz, France; The Remarkables, New Zealand; Flachauwinkl Resort, Austria; and Killington Resort, USA.

“The Stash concept is to use whatever indigenous materials and features the mountain has to offer – like rock walls, trees and drops – then enhance them a bit to create the ultimate natural park so riders can take their freestyle riding to the next level,” says Jeff Boliba, Global Resort Director at Burton Snowboards. “Riders like Jussi Oksanen have been helping with the Jackson Hole Stash, scoping the best lines and creating new features that will be super fun to ride.”

The Stash is scheduled to open this winter with four different runs and over 50 different features. Chain saw artist Bob King created 20 carvings that will be located around the Stash, one of which is a moose that riders can use like an up-rail. Burton team rider Jussi Oksanen came up with several features, as well as Jackson locals Bryan Iguchi, Rob Kingwill, and Travis Rice.

Kyle Clancy Interview on Snowboard Mag

30 Sep

This season Kyle Clancy is more than ready to build some huge kickers and slash the powdery mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. What you may or may not know is that this well-respected snowboarder grew up on the East Coast. After seeing the success of pro riders he idolized in Vermont, Kyle was in search of better terrain and bigger parks.

Predictably, after high school he decided to move to Cali with his buddy, Zach Leach. It wasn’t long until Kyle ran into Bobby George and Jeff Anderson, who helped pave the way for Kyle’s success. The rest was history. Kyle went on to travel with The Grenade Army, produce his own film company, and star in countless shred flicks (That’s It, That’s All, The Community Project and The Boned Age to name a few).

More recently, his Smokin Snowboards pro model just came out. Kyle’s busy life perseveres with the happenings of his snowboarding career and maintaining a family. The success he has gained from living on the West Coast the past eleven years is renowned. His habitual positive attitude continues to make headway.

Is there anything you can say about filming with Travis Rice for his new movie Flight?
Unfortunately, last year we didn’t really have snow in Wyoming. When we finally tried to get together and film, we had a lot of avalanche danger and the snow wasn’t that deep. It put things on hold for the Wyoming crew. I’m looking forward to getting out there this year and building some kickers ‘cause it’s a two year project.
