Friday Night. December 3, 2010. Snow in the streets of Salt Lake City. The Rail Gardens. Pizza. Homemade trophies. Beer. Videograss. Grass. Music. Friends. Lights. Generators. PARTY.

The party was cool until LNP brought Meryl Streep and David Hasselhoff.

A film-season kick off party? I wouldn’t take it that far, but by the time you read this, just about every crew in snowboarding will be fully operational, stacking shots, and doing what they do best.

After The Hoff broke up the party and scared off the girls, it was a pretty mellow scene. (Clockwise -> Young Brady Larson, surprisingly not pictured with his BFF Ben. Justin Bennee came equipped with the beats, and some pizza. -> Got great grass on video, Videograss’s videos.

Justin Meyer and the Videograss crew were generous enough to bust out their lights and generators to throw a little get down at one of snowboarding’s most well known spots. The Rail Gardens. A proving ground, a hangout, a practice spot, a measly dog park. Call it what you will, the Rail Gardens gets more play than weird/cute animal youtube vidoes on Huggy’s computer.

Word of the session spread like the sickening pollution that loves SLC, and a great group of rides came out of the woodwork for a 3 hour fiesta that was bound to have pleased La Nina. Grenier was even so kind as to weld some trophies out of scrap metal beforehand. Good times indeed.

Brandon Hammid is a party animal, not a Taliban member.

Come January, Videograss will release their Rail Gardens Party edit right here on SNOWBOARDERmag.com to kick off a series of exclusive edits that will, if I heard correctly, be some of the dopest shit ever.

Lucas Magoon also won an award, I don’t know what it was, perhaps a tall boy in a plastic bag or a handcrafted #1. On left, Nosepress front 180 out. On Right, Frontboard gone wrong. Keep a lookout for the video in Jan to see him stomp both tricks.
