Mammoth Mountain thought it was ready for Oakley Week. But the famed snow destination was fully smacked upside the head during the O themed time period as Oakley team members, core shop guests, skiers, snowboard shredders and more dropped into Mammoth’s village area for its official celebration. And as always (when O throws the party), it raged. Rocking at the famed Hyde Lounge, the unique event marked the apex of what was an already vibrant, raucous week – displaying the new partnership between Oakley and Mammoth Mountain to the fullest. With functions that ran simultaneously throughout the Mountain, Lodge and Village, it was all culminated with the Hyde Lounge event that placed Oakley’s “30 Years of Dedication, Technology, Passion and Fun” on display for all to see. The decades of snow innovation literally hung from the ceilings and were illuminated in displays in a mass celebration of the brand’s heritage in snow sports.

Norwegian Metal: Snowboard Star Stale Sandbech Claims Overall TTR World Snowboard Tour Title, Video Edits Drop
The Scandinavians already knew Stale Sandbech as the ‘heir apparent’ to Norwegian Snowboard Royalty. But few actually thought he’d claim the coveted TTR World Snowboard Tour Title so soon – and at such a young age. Including Stale, himself. “I wasn’t really going for it at the start of the season, but then I was leading and thought ‘wow’, maybe I can actually do this!” he said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, apparel and gear. “Now at the end, it was exciting ’cause I didn’t qualify for today – But it is really cool to be part of that legendary list of riders who won it before.” The easygoing ripper is known just as much for having as much fun as anyone – just riding on the tour. But despite his super friendly, typically Norwegian demeanor, Stale’s riding did the fierce talking for itself.
