We have been going into the mountains of Utah for snowboarding at the first drop of snow for nearly twenty years. For the last ten years, we have had a place that we cultivated and modified up big cottonwood canyon for early season snowboarding before the resorts are open called, The Spot. This season, we found out that our spot had been vandalized and decimated just before winter started. We tried to fix things up, but it happened again and we still don’t know who or why. We never put anything out photo or video-wise of The Spot until last year and this seems to be the result of that. It’s like 2Pac said, “jealousy and envy coming for my enemies.” Problem is, we don’t have any intention of stopping what we do because of something like this. We decided to go legit. This is how it went down.
