SNOWBOARDING YETI INFO

Snowboarding Yeti

Interview:  September 2012

Snowboarding.com:  When was the first time you snowboarded?

Squatch:  The first time I snowboarded was at Bear Mountain in around 1993 or 1994. 

Snowboarding.com: Why did you start snowboarding?

Squatch:  Well, I was a poll dragger for many years and never really took to the awkward stance, parallel skis, ski poles and wearing ski boots.  Once, my local resorts started allowing snowboarding I bought a 162 K2 Snowboard, K2 bindings and Airwalk boots.  I grew up Surfing and Skateboarding so snowboarding was a natural fit.   I haven't put on skis since.  I still have that K2 Snowboard, Bindings and Boots.  The edge got damaged on a chair lift so It's not ride able.  I would love to take it out again.

Snowboarding.com:  What do you like about snowboarding?

Squatch:  I love snowboarding!  I turn the entire slope into a wave and look for features to do surfing inspired turns; bottom turns, cutbacks, slashes, airs, etc. Then hit the park for a few hip jumps and jibs to complete the run.  Soo much fun!

Snowboarding.com:  Isn't it hard to surf with all that hair?

Squatch:  Watch it!  You should see my friend Don.  Doh!

Snowboarding.com: What advice do you have for young riders and beginners?

Squatch: You're never too cool to wear a helmet!  Beginners should always start by taking a lesson.  Don't give up after the first time.  It usually takes three time in a season to get comfortable so you can enjoy the experience.
