TheGoodLife! presents The 3rd Annual ‘Winter Get Down’ 2024!

After deep consultations with the Snow Gods, we were stoked to return for our 3rd Annual ‘Winter Get Down’ at a new mountain just 2 hours north of Brooklyn for another amazing year of pure snowboard shreddery and on-mountain aprés grooves.

The Winter Get Down was created to provide affordable access to the sport and culture of snowboarding for our NYC community and to bring some extra spice to the mountains! Each year we continue to help add to the flavor of the snowboard mountain-scape and this year we really brought it properly!

Big love to all the alumni who returned this year, many of whom were just starters at the first Get Down, and have returned as fierce riders! Extra love & respect to all our new snowboarders + fresh faces who have joined the Official Winter Get Down Shred Class of 2024!

We returned to our cozy + groovy Catskill Mountains hideout and resort, Glen Falls House, where we hosted nightly Family Dinners with their incredible new chef + licensed mushroom-foraging gangster, Michelle Williams. This year we had four unique nights of programming in the Hi-Fi sound system-equipped Tavern joint featuring everything from our close friends and fam on the ones and twos, a live band set by former Olympian snowboarder + ever-evolving trendsetter, Trevor Andrew, Underbelly Comedy Night curated by our fam Cipha Sounds & His Very Funny Friends, plus an exceptionally curated snowboard photography slideshow by Burton’s master principle photographer, Dean ‘Blotto’ Gray.

We physically and mentally moved mountains this season, taking our riders and dancers to Belleayre Mountain, where we activated 3 days of on-snow music thanks to our friends at the Future Hi-Fi sound system who provide crystal clear bass + mids. Each day we took the Gondola up high where we experienced super fun late Winter/Spring conditions varying from mystic haze, 60-degree blue bird riding, and to top it off we were blessed with a bunch of fresh snow on our final day! Extra Large Big Ups to the Snow Gods!

As always we came equipped with a heavy gang of musical selectors that we couldn’t thank enough for blessing us with their sonic goodness both up on the mountain and back at Glen Falls House. Shout out to our entire DJ lineup: Aku, Angel+Dren, Cipha Sounds, Disgonuts, Dio Garcia, Fly Hendrix, HXLT, Jasmine Solano, Max Klaw, Niks, Niara Sterling, Omer Mil, Rahill, Soni withanEYE, Queen Majesty, and our host MC+DJ, Willy Soul.

Much love + gratitude to our family of brand partners, Burton Snowboards, Fat Tire, Hudson Whiskey, OvRride + Grillo’s Pickles! Thank you for supporting our mission to be able to bring our crew to the mountains to live, love and shred together once again!
