Snow Team Report 07-13-04

Jul 13 2004 / Tuesday

John Jackson has been hanging out at home trying to organize a trip with Standard Films and possibly TransWorld Snowboarding mag down South to New Zealand. If everything goes well, he'll be taking off for a few weeks later this month. He's sitting on a good amount of footage for his part in Standard Films Lost in Transition, but still wants to document more bangers.
Markku Koski recently had his cast removed, so he'll be focused on rehab for the next few weeks. He said his arm is feeling a lot better, and he plans to take off later this month for some Summer shredding in Europe. Markku's also planning on heading to Vancouver to visit his girlfriend sometime in August. He's also sitting on some hefty footage for Lost in Transition, as well as photos for a few interviews and tons of editorial exposure. Be sure to check updates for latest news on his interviews.
Tyler Lepore is a proud homeowner. He recently purchased a new house in East Vancouver, BC. He's been slaving away on board graphics, T-shirt designs, working on his cut and paste magazine and moving into his new house. He'll be busy for the next several weeks getting settled, as well as doing a little bit of Summer shredding at Blackcomb. Congratulations, Tyler! Happy home owning!
Benji Ritchie recently ventured out to Europe for the Summer camps with his board sponsor (Rossignol). He'll be in Europe until July 14 and then head back home for a short bit until he hits the road again. He may head down to the Southern Hemis for a little bit to film with Standard Films, but nothing's been finalized. Benji will have a segment in Lost in Transition, so be sure to look out for him in the near future.
Janna Meyen had a few setbacks since her knee surgery. She's been attending physical therapy consistently for the last couple of months, but since she developed a large amount of scare tissue in her knee, she had to undergo a few scopes, so she'll be taking the rest of the Summer to rehab and hopefully get back on the snow early next season.
Alexis Waite recently dropped-in on a house in Bend, Oregon so she's another proud home owner. Congratulations, Alexis! She just took ownership last week, so she's been busy moving in and getting settled. Alexis drove down to Mt. Hood last week to meet up with the etnies R&D crew to test out some new samples, then drove back to Bend to move in. Now she's back in Mt. Hood as a guest coach at High Cascade snowboard camp for the rest of the Summer.
Wille Yli-Luoma flew to Portland, Oregon to join the rest of the etnies R&D team to test out some new 2005 samples last week. He spent a few days at Mt. Hood flying in and out of the pipes / hips, escalating more than twenty feet, an easy ten to fifteen feet higher than anyone else. In fact, he recently scored himself a nice $4,500 Rolex this past weekend by winning the highest air in the quarterpipe contest at the Abominable Snow Jam in Mt. Hood. Wille was blasting out of the quarterpipe reaching somewhere in the ball park of twenty-five feet. After a few attempts at the quarterpipe, he landed on the deck, causing him to bruise a couple of his ribs and his ankles. But that didn't stop him. Congratulations, Wille!
B-team rider Leanne Pelosi took 1st place at the Rail Jam contest held at Windell's camp last week. She pulled off an impressive front board slide and received a nice lunch box filled with $1,000 cash. Leanne ended up tossing a hundred single bills out to the campers, causing a huge pile-up at Windell's camp grounds. Congratulations, Leanne, and thanks for the beers! Leanne will be coaching at HCSC for the rest of the summer and then heading back to Whistler after that. She'll be gearing up for her Winter snowboard camp for girls only. Look out for more details later.
