Welcome to SNOWBOARDER’s Week in Review. It’s August 19th, which means we’re teetering precariously on the advent of fall and soon after that, the first snow of the 2016-17 season. We’re waiting fairly patiently, we think. The biggest news this week? The release of the trailer for Travis Rice’s new flick, The Fourth Phase which has dominated snowboarding’s social media airwaves since Tuesday, less than a month from the movie’s world premiere. On the other side of the coin, crafty Canadian Kael Hill released the latest summer stunt, and it’s a real good one. We’re late to posting the update on Vail Resorts’ withdrawal of their polarizing trademark application, but this marks a success story for Park City residents, so we’re including it in this week’s edition of Week in Review. While you wait for winter, here are a few stories–from newsworthy to off beat–that went down in the past seven days.
