Some things in life are just meant to be awesome. After so many years of unreal experiences, that’s the only way we can describe the U.S. Open of Snowboarding. So many aspects of this sport change, popularity goes up and down, trends come and go, but yet every year this event gives us everything we ever wanted from snowboarding and refreshes our love for what is seriously one of the most fun things on earth. Following the pessimistic tone of the end of 2016, this year’s Open, the 35th, was restorative in more ways than one. Perfect weather, a huge contingent of friends and fam, and some next level snowboarding gave us all the giant reset that we needed. From resurgent wins by Shaun White and Mark McMorris to ground breaking riding by Chloe Kim and Anna Gasser on the pro side to spending days getting lost on Vail’s endless terrain with the Burton and Dope Roots crews, followed by nights getting lost doing who knows what, we’ve got the whole thing documented in film by Craig Wetherby as only TheGoodLife! can. Enjoy the ride.
When word was sent from our VT brethren that another big storm was about to hit we decided to head North to enjoy some POW! After a late night at our Family Dinner at Sweet Chick we packed up the Jeep and hit the road first thing in the A.M. to try and avoid the hectic, stormy roads but the snow came in fast! The trip up to Burlington usually takes about 5-6 hours but this time it was a 9 hour treacherous journey. Even though it was a super long drive it was well worth the trek!
