A couple of our good pals from the Midwest have a new snowboard company! Check out what Pete Harvieux, Joe Mertes, and friends have been up to…
“Dark Meadows is the inaugural collection from The Interior Plain Project. A union of fellow movers that are looking to head in a different route than those set by the present norms. With nearly three decades of involvement in riding at the anchor piont, this ship is set to lap this common stance. It’s this which has always made snowboarding and it’s goods unique. We are taking our own line.
The Dark Meadows Collection draws inspiration from a visual perspective of covert evil: the shadows that move at the edge of the woods, silhouettes on a moonlit evening that can’t be accounted for, the eerie stillness before a massive storm. This initial collection will comprise snowboards, tees, fleece, and headwear. Find the Dark Meadows collection at the finest Midwestern Board shops now.
From Howl: Howl is really excited to welcome Joe Sexton to the family. We are hyped that we can keep Joe's hands warm while he's dropping hammers filming for Videograss' new release. Be sure to check out Joe's signature "House of 1817" Howl Mitten, available now in only the best shops. Go to www.howlsupply.com for more.Read More

I started Ollies for Alzheimer’s for my grandfather, Bernard Isaacs, who was diagnosed just before I ran the first one in 2010. It was awesome to see the smile on his face when I gave him a plaque at his 90th birthday from the first event. He's now 91, turning 92 in April. Love you Gramps!
I wanted to do something that would help bring snowboarders and their families who have been affected with Alzheimer's together, as well as people who just want to come out and show some love for the cause. Not that I have anything against pre-season scaffolding rail jams by any means, I just wanted something fun in the beginning of the season that wasn't necessarily life-threatening and hopefully hold a deeper meaning for the folks that came out. We were fortunate to have 50-degree sunshine and spoiled with the setup right on the rope-tow so that kids wouldn't even have to hike!
It was an awesome turnout with 27 people signing up and about 50-75 people there to support and give donations. Tons of prizes were given for the kids with the highest ollies, including Robin Littlewolf coming in with a 1.5 foot ollie for the girls, and Cary Peterson and Mike Casanova (switch!) having a 3.5 feet for the boys. After the ticket drawing was over, I don't think anyone walked away without a prize.
I especially want to give a huge thanks to John Hodge of House of 1817, Ben Olson of Damage Boardshop, Peter Harvieux of Corduroy/The Interior Plain Project, AMY AND MARK from WILD MOUNTAIN, Justin Caf and Ron Faverty of Rome Snowboards, Dan Weigel of Elm Headwear, Cale Meyer and Cody Prudoehl from Airblaster, Joel Kramer with Dye Eyewear, Nate Blomquist of Common Apparel, Luke Lieske of GuRucci Flyer Design, Sean Kerrick Sullivan for shooting the photo on the flyer and Ashley Snell of the Alzheimer's Association, Minnesota Chapter. And I can't forget the four lovely girls that made everything run so smoothly; Catherine Price, Liz Terry, Madeline Brittany, and Graci Sturg for registering people, taking donations, killing it on the mic, and holding down the BBQ!
