Bon Voyage SLC 02
Olympus Hills Bowling in SLC

Words and Photos: E Stone

Yesterday August 19th, 2010 a freak storm moved in and actually gave us our first dusting in the higher elevations! Winter is in the air and quite fittingly it was the night of SLC’s first Snowboard movie premier. The Videograss crew in conjunction with Milo Sport threw a bowling party and video showing to an eager crowd at Olympus hills Bowling alley.

This was early in the evening while the place was still filling up and people were claiming their lanes and taking advantage of the free bowling.

It was a cool mellow setting that felt more like a night out with friends then a snowboard industry event. The place was not all plastered with banners, it was low key and more about a good hang out. As the lights dimmed everyone stopped bowling and all eyes fell on the movie.

Derek Dennison tossing gutter balls all night. Just kidding rolling strikes for sure!

Props to the crew for making another dope flick and extra props to Dave Doman‘s cameo shot in Grenier’s part. The crowd went wild when the old shot from Gen-pop showed up in the film. The highlights of the movie for me were seeing Justin Bennee shred and all the tricks Jed Anderson threw down. My Favorite shot in the movie was Leblanc’s ending ollie on the Jeffy rail up in Big Bear. Big Mike’s largest ollie to date!!!

Movie Time.

With every premier there is of course an after party. Twilight in Downtown SLC hosted the crew and kept us hydrated well into the night. Thanks for the good time Videograss.
