Jeff Brushie and the VTSP Inducted to the Snowboard Hall of FameBy admin • Sep 19th, 2013 • Category: News
Yes, the snowboarding hall of fame is a thing at the VT Ski and Snowboard museum. To me, this begs the question, are there any Mysteries at this museum and when will Don Wilder solve them, but most importantly, they’re having a party.
The Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum celebrates Jeff Brushie and the VTSP with the opening of an all new exhibit and Vermont Snowboarding Hall of Fame inductions.
In 1985 a group of High School kids from Northern Vermont saw advertisements for snowboards in their BMX and skateboarding magazines and soon started schussing the sled hills of the Champlain Valley standing sideways. Once resorts began opening their doors to riders this pastime transitioned into a lifestyle and a brotherhood was born. The VTSP became renowned for their technical skills and new school style.
While most all original members of the crew which included Cole Bouchett, Josh Brownlee, Matt Lawrence, Greg Manning, and Kris Swierz went on to enjoy success at various levels in professional snowboarding, it was Jeff Brushie who took his style and skills to a whole new level of global recognition. The influence that Jeff and the VTSP had on snowboarding changed the way we were riding on east coast forever and continues to inspire countless snowboarders.
