Bear Mountain Through the Ages

By • Dec 13th, 2012 • Category: Features, Videos

Every since we hired Stan, a spry 23 year old with new knees and a marginal sense of snowboarding history (sorry Stan, it’s true), it’s become increasingly apparent that being born in the late 70s and early 80s makes you officially “snowboard old” now. That’s right, I said it. If you’re still wishing it was the 90s and are up in arms about Paul McCartney standing in for Kurt Cobain in the Nirvana Reunion, the kids do not care about you anymore. It’s ok though! When you’re old, it doesn’t matter what people think anymore. So, with that in mind, here are two recent edits from Bear Mountain featuring two very different generations of snowboarding.

First up, this Stepchild edit featuring Jordan Smalls, which we think you kids will like!

And now, for the nostalgic old people,  44-year-old Dave Downing has a GoPro and he’s not afraid to use it! He and Kevin Jones take some laps at Bear. Don’t know who these guys are? Google it and then feel kinda silly for that hate comment you probably already left.

    I think ‘yeah’ was just referring to this generation as the rail generation because so many kids are only riding rails. The percentage of well rounded snowboarders has decreased massively in the last 7 years.

    Always good to see KJ. I still have the poster of him frontboarding the tahoe cheese grater rail.
