Kahle Toothill and her boyfriennd from Denver Colorado flew into Vancouver last friday night just as Whistler was getting another dump of snow on an already growing base. After an epic dinner at Teppan Village and a rousing party at the “Face To Face” concert they crashed at the very comfortable Summit Lodge in downtown Whistler.
Saturday, they woke up, blurry-eyed, to the full mountain tour with Romain, David, Colin and Helen all while shredding on an unexpected gift, a 2016 Hel.YES 152. The snow didn’t stop all day Saturday and into the night, so while they slept off another huge dinner at Sushi Village the powder kept piling up.
Colorado pride and snowboarding legend in her own right Megan Pischke joined the hosting crew on the mountain sunday to finish off what Kahle repeatedly was calling one of the best trips of her life.
Her email to DCP a couple days later sums it up best.
THANK YOU! This weekend was unreal.
You guys went above and beyond. If there is anything I could do for you guys in return, don’t hesitate to ask.
I’m forever grateful that I had the opportunity to hang out and shred with the crew. You really made me feel like part of the YES family. I’m gonna miss all you guys.
Let me know when you’re in CO again. Would love to shred again soon!
All the best to the team and Meg.
P.S. Josh is also extremely thankful and had a ton of fun!
Big thanks to DCP and Olivier Dallaire Dumas for organizing everything and of course our very generous sponsors Whistler Mountain, Summit Lodge, Underground Tunning, Sushi Village and Teppan Village for making to all possible.
Well the mountains are opening all over our great earth and we are all topped up with stoke from a busy season of movie premieres. Ready to Shred! The Yes. family got together in Whistler for a good ender before we all start the 2014 snow season. We did some signing and give aways with our friends at The Circle and then headed over to El Furniture Warehouse Resturant/Bar to watch YES.Missions, party and giveaway more love. Here is a few photos from the night. Lets get shredding! photos: Chad Chomlack
By now many of you may have heard the news about the avalanche in Colorado that occurred Saturday April 20th, near Loveland Pass. Sadly we lost one of our own in this tragic accident. Joe Timlin was the YES, NOW, and Jones Snowboards rep for the Rocky Mountain region. But more importantly, he was family. Brother-in-law to DCP and Megan, and a close friend to many in the Colorado wintersports community, Joe was a bright, dynamic person who will be sorely missed. Everyone here at Nidecker USA considers Joe and his wife Krissy to be extended family of ours, and we are devastated by this terrible loss. Memorial information will be provided once we hear more details from Joe’s family.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families. As we all begin the process of picking up the pieces, it’s important to remember that life is precious and family is everything. Please play safe.
