The U.S. Open of Snowboarding 2015

This years Burton U.S. Open of Snowboarding in Vail, Colorado was definitely one of the most epic shred events to date! From the foot of fresh POW that we were blessed with, to the best snowboarders in the world pushing the limits of progression & style, to the late night ragers & domino tournaments, this trip was one for the history books! Words can’t really explain how dope this experience was so we put together a nice gallery of film photos so you can see what went down.
More photos by Craig Wetherby after the jump…

The Eagle Had Landed!

And so did G-Pen Chris…

It was good to be back in the Mile High!

Where the air & the treez were so fresh…

And Status Jeff became one with nature…

It really was heavenly!

After a lovely day of shredding, it was time to enjoy some more good times with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros…

It was nice to see our Frends enjoying themselves…

And it was all love as always…

After a long, blurry night it was time to get focused and Blotto was on point as usual!

Greg Bretz was getting things warmed up…

And our little brother, Louie Vito, was ready to drop in next…

Gabi Viteri was enjoying the beautiful weather and some fresh turns in her TGL! x Avery Dennison 1 0f 1 custom hoodie…

Zack Dalton & Mark McMorris we’re enjoying the day too!

The spirits were flying high!

And Danny Davis was getting higher than most…

Taylor Gold was boosting too!

With steez all the way down to the parking lot…

Luke Mitrani was feeling the vibes!

Arthur Longo put down some solid runs…and had enough style points to earn him 2nd place!

As always, the poachers always get the most style points at the Open…Greg Bretz with the huge double grab!

But in our eyes, Danny always wins on the style tip…

After a great day watching some of the most progressive halfpipe riding ever witnessed we were off to enjoy the nightlife with Girl Talk setting the town on fire!

Danny, Jake & Mark were feeling it!

One of the highlights of our weekend was the A-Dog Tribute with DJ Maseo & Ali Shaheed Muhammad bringing back the old school vibes…Andy Williams was definitely in the building and shining larger than life! Rest in Power DJ A-Dog!!

After all the competitions & partying was done, it was good to get some runs in with Blotto & the homies like it was 1995!

Josh Merson was repping his 1 of 1!

Hannah Teter even took us to her private powder stash to visit her friend Danger Mouse!

Unfortunately, the weekend had to come to an end but not without the official U.S. G-Pen Closing Party…

Some friendly games of pool…

And of course we couldn’t leave without taking some money on the custom Blotto x Bien Conectao Domino Table!

Major thank you to everyone at Burton Snowboards for taking it up a notch once again and creating yet another amazing memory in the history of snowboarding!

Til next year…

TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour 2015: The Movie

As if the pictures weren't enough, may we present TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour 2015: The Movie. Video by Eddie Grams. Music by TJ Mizell. Enjoy!

TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour 2015 Rewind

TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour 2015Was it all a dream? Sometimes it seems that way. When Timbo, Craig, Roofeeo, TJ Mizell, and Grams embarked on TheGoodLife! 2015 Mile High Tour, we had only a slight idea of what was in store. From powder chasing across the Rockies to high life living in Aspen to our Denver takeover with Burton to face melting with Diplo, if we didn’t have the pictures to prove it, we might not even believe it was real. Luckily we do. Hit the jump for TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour photo rewind with photos by Craig Wetherby, Gabe L’Heuruex and Eddie Grams and words by Tim Brodhagen. Special thanks goes to Burton Snowboards, House of Marley, Avery Dennison, G-Pen, Pacifico, Colorado Ski Co, Loveland and Copper Mountain. And away we go!

MHT-RECAP25Because as soon as we did, it started to snow! The Mile High Tour had begun…

MHT-RECAP26Tunnel Vision!

MHT-RECAP21First things first – the Mile High Tour is about many things, but first of all it’s about snowboarding and the squad was ready.

MHT-RECAP16Fishin’.

MHT-RECAP10Babes in tents.

MHT-RECAP15Air Hockey. (In which Timbo maintained his lifetime unbeaten streak with a mauling of Roofeeo.)

MHT-RECAP49Hula Hooping.

MHT-RECAP50Tree Hugging.

MHT-RECAP56And even giant games of Jenga.

BurtonSIA2015_Denver_CO_G.LHeureux-7686Of course we had to turn up too.

MHT-RECAP28And once we were up we could only keep going – so we hopped a stretch Caddy with The House of Marley and headed to Red Rocks for the Damian Marley and Major Lazer show.

MHT-RECAP31The venue is unreal!

MHT-RECAP29Jah Rastafari!

MHT-RECAP30The view from backstage.

MHT-RECAP63Then Diplo hit the stage.

MHT-RECAP52And shit got lit!

MHT-RECAP64So much bass!!!

MHT-RECAP66Roofeeo and the Lazerettes.

MHT-RECAP62It was time to make moves.

MHT-RECAP53Diplo’s afterparty was crazier than the first show.

MHT-RECAP54Told ya!

unnamedBy the end we were all in space.

MHT-RECAP34Multiple missions completed there was only one thing left to do – head back to the mountains. But not without a stop at our friendly neighborhood dispensary (which used to be an A&W) Native Roots.

MHT-RECAP35The state troops were there too, and it was all good.

MHT-RECAP33Finally after a few more days of this…

MHT-RECAP40This…

MHT-RECAP43This…

TIMBO&GRAMS_POWAnd this…

MHT-RECAP45It was time to head back east. To the Mile High, we’ll see you next year!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015

TheGoodLife! Hideout 2015At TheGoodLife! we only look in one direction: Up. With this exact philosophy in mind, we took to the road on our annual Mile High Tour across the great state of Colorado prepared to take everything up a notch. And take it up we did! Along with our sonic curators Roofeeo and TJ Mizell we headed west from NYC to Aspen to unveil TheGoodLife! Hideout 2015. Nestled into the hills with a breathtaking panoramic view of Aspen’s four mountains, words can do The Hideout little justice. Lucky for us, Craig Wetherby and Eddie Grams had their cameras at the ready to paint us a picture of the perfect alpine oasis. Special thanks goes to our friends at Avery Dennison, The House of Marley, Bien Conectao NYC, G-Pen and Pacifico for helping us make it nice. Now sit back, put something in the air, and join us for our epic recap in photos! (Words by Tim Brodhagen)

TheGoodLife! Hideout 2015Welcome to TheGoodLife! Hideout!

TheGoodLife! Hideout 2015We woke up like this. Every single day.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015We’d start with a safety meeting.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015And then move on to breakfast. Did you know that Pacifico is better for you than most mainstream cereals? #Facts.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015We also ate a lot of waffles. Waffles win gold medals, just ask Danny Davis. #MoreFacts.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015After breakfast we’d move into our on-site TheGoodLife! Pop-Up Custom Shop powered by Avery Dennison. You only needed about an hour in Aspen to see that we were cooking up straight crack in here. With a vast array of options from photo prints by Ricky Powell, Dean Blotto Gray, Laura Austin, Gabe L’Heureux, Craig Wetherby, Meg Haywood Sullivan, and Eddie Grams, to graphics and patches from TheGoodLife!, SHUT, Fool’s Gold, Grenade and more to custom fonts, numbers, and emojis, and unlimited options through trimming and layering, it was possible for every single person to make their own #1of1 TheGoodLife! apparel piece. The fun literally never stopped.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Just a few of the options.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Crispy White Tees on deck.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015It looked so good we framed it.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Craig and Greg D got in early.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Greg opted for simple.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015It’s a winner!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015You could also go tech with it.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Like super tech – Hayley Simpson’s “#BLAZED” was a crowd favorite!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Not to be outdone, Gabi Viteri took her hoodie to royal levels.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015And G-Pen Chris, well you know how he’s living.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Mark McMorris and Coco Ho opted for straight photo treatments.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015While Danny Davis went to work cooking up his masterpiece.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Louie Vito went for black – he reps TheGoodLife! right down to his skin.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015While Hannah Teter chose white to rep the Altered States of America.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Perhaps inspired by these two – Roofeeo and TJ had the whole game on lock.

CB6B2304From the Hideout to the Club.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015 And as always, there were NO REQUESTS!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015When we weren’t cooking up marvelous shit in the Custom Shop we were mobbing on our new TheGoodLife! x Bien Conectao domino tables. Handmade in Brooklyn and featuring photo tops from Blotto, Grams, Craig Wetherby, and Noah Ritter, the tables took our bones game to the highest level!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015We even held our first annual Mile High Domino tournament hosted by Danny Davis.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Craig’s table was seeing mad green action.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015And Blotto’s table was just perfect.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015So perfect that Timbo won the tourney!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015Really everyone was a winner thanks to our House of Marley gifting suite.

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015 George Carpenter and friends are gonna be banging bluetooth for life!

TheGoodLife! Hideout Aspen 2015As quickly as it began, it was a wrap! Peace Aspen see you next year! Next stop, Denver as TheGoodLife! Mile High Tour proceeds!
