Log Masters

Log Masters

Beaver Creek, Colorado – A bunch of snowboarders came together at the Beav for the unofficial Log Masters snowboard competition that took place in the woods throughout the Beaver Creek Mountain Resort. Props to the Never Summer Team of Bill and Rick Rodriquez and Ryan Cruze for dominating the competition by showing everyone that jibbing wood is way more fun then metal.

With little snow the comp still went down, however as someone that spent many a years “logging” I truly believe this event would benefit from a waiting period so people can slide logs with pow.

Just a thought but while I have you listening someone should remind “wookie” the founder of the comp to invite some of the people that actually started this hole niche of riding logs – Beaver Creek locals like Ronnie, Jerry Robinson, Jay Lavis and company would be a great addition to next years Log Masters.

    “Mike,”
    I totally agree with you. We should only throw log masters on a powder day. When we see its going to snow we will call everyone from Wyoming, New Hampshire, and Utah so they can book flights and get here the following day. No one has a job that rides in the Masters anyway. We should never plan a date in advance and if we do it should be delayed until it snows, like maybe until next year. All of those guys you mentioned are getting a little long in the tooth but they would always be invited if they asked. They are all sick as hell. You on the other hand sound a little too bitter about something and probably should just steer clear of the whole thing. Its an awesome day that sounds like too many smiles for you to handle.

      Nash,

      Thanks for leaving a comment on the Mountain Weekly News story about this years Log Masters. It never snows in Colorado anymore so it may be hard to find a weather window that works for the comp in the future.. Logging used to be underground at the Beav and I’m sure there are those old schoolers that like to keep it that way. Are you familiar with any of the log slides that have been torn down in recent years, or the back breaking work that went into setting up some of those monster renegade slides.

      Thankfully you guys (for the most part) only ride logs in the comp that were built by the park crew. Have you ever heard of Ozzie, Mark Wechsler or Brett Logan? You may have to ask around, however it would be a nice gesture some day to invite some of the original loggers who still rip the shit out of the mountain to the aptly titled “Log Masters” And don’t worry odds are they won’t compete.

      Or you could go even older school and call up Adam Merriman, Cole Taylor, Kyle Schneiberg and the crew – wook knows em..

      But hey you to will turn 30 one day and then maybe even 40.. Until then keep it to the kids. As for smiles I got about 800 days of them at the Beav..

      Mike
