PORTLAND, OR. (July 6, 2011) – The team riders been working hard– ending video parts, winning the team challenge, traveling the globe to get the shot and breaking themselves off. It's time to do something different.
The Salomon and Bonfire Team Vacation is a worldwide resort and shop tour spanning North America, Europe and Asia. Riders are taking it back to the kind of snowboarding that started it all, riding the chairlift, hanging with friends, and meeting new people along the way.
You can follow the team through weekly team edits released throughout the season or by meeting up with them at one of the many stops.
"Most of the team has spent the last several seasons killing themselves
for different video projects or contests so it feels like a good time to
spend a year riding resorts and having fun as a crew. Not to mention, we’re gonna make a web series and a tour video that is going to be pretty awesome," says Bonfire and Salomon Team Manager Java Fernandez.
Riders participating include: Jed Anderson, Bode Merrill, Jenny Jones, Louif Paradis, Chris Grenier, Annie Boulanger, Harrison Gordon, David Benedek, Josh Dirksen, Desiree Melancon, Wolle Nyvelt, Chris Carr, Sylvain Bourbousson, Taka Nakai, Jamie Nicholls, Kohei Kudo Scotty Arnold and Rolf Nylander.
