Pennsylvania isn’t really acknowledged for producing world-class shreds. In fact, it’s a state more associated with steel mills than ski hills. However, the Keystone State slopes have groomed some of snowboarding’s most formidable über-groms in their early years. Such is the case for PA native Eddie Wall. However, Wall’s home hill can’t take all the credit for his on-snow success; Eddie’s personal drive and endless ability is what catapulted him into the upper echelons of awesome. Mopping floors and cleaning toilets in the Mammoth base lodge at night and fine-tuning his skills in Mammoth’s Main Park by day, Eddie introduced himself to the snowboard world around the turn of the century, and since then has rewritten the “video pro” handbook, cranking out one next-level part after another for the last decade. A sponsor switch-up to Forum later, Eddie has become a team captain of sorts—as he’s been around the block a few times—but don’t go thinking that the dude’s “hitting the wall.” Eddie spent last winter filming for Forum’s new team video Forever, and as usual, you can expect the unusual with Eddie’s astounding offering. In the meantime, we’re giving you the chance to cop Eddie’s kit. Click the button below and enter to win Wall’s wicked wardrobe.

“Such a fun mountain to shred, and they give me a VIP parking pass so I can park right up front; that’s nice. It’s fun for park and pow days, I really like Mammoth. Check out their new video this year, Hot Laps! It’s the first Mammoth Mtn. video!”
