BackYard Sessions 2014


Backyard Sessions - Founded by Woody:

"Backyard Sessions started out from summer tales of legendary parks notched into the woods around Whistler as a fellow landscaper, Dave and I talked away the off-season blues. The two of us would talk about the house a buddy of a buddy who used to sell weed, to this guy’s girlfriend’s house that had the most INSANE quarter pipe - redirect to down bar. The stories grew and grew and grew with spring melt erasing all proof of it for another 6 months. The idea that ignited Backyard Sessions was to capture these elusive parks in their prime with slow-mo video and professional photographers, pit them against each other then bring the crews together to snowboard for free in hand-shaped parks. Last year boasted full clam shell, coping corners and two tiered butter pads and this year was no different. The WESTBEACH house brought the Golden Rake back to Alpine with wood jibs so smooth, so polished, so waxed - they popped under the flood lights and CPK's photo flash.

“A shout out to all the submitters: to Jay Britton in Nelson, the Nordic House, The Finestone’s, Camp of Scallions 1.5; all the sponsors: 3CS Outerwear, Volcom, Electric, Flow Snowboards, Candygrind Gloves, Airblaster and Arena Snowparks! All the judges:(250) Jer Melanson, Davey K, Gordie Lehane, and Jessy B and XTina from EVO, Garret from Camp Of Scallions park 1.0. The photographers CPK and CoochiPeace and Jonathan Schramm (Dragon Factory Films) for shooting and creating the 2014 BYS video and finally, to EVOLUTION for helping us celebrate nitty-gritty grass root boarding!"

See ya next year!

Backyard sessions-how it works:

BackYard Sessions, organized by Evolution and 250snow, is a contest-ish to celebrate snow culture and homegrown parks in Whistler. The invitation is posted for people building parks in their yards to submit photos and videos of their yard to Evolution and 250snow. We go over the submissions and pick the top yards. The Evolution and 250snow Crews ride the top yards with the Yard Crew and we decide on our favourite park; the criteria being Sessionalbility (flow, features, multiple lines), Creativity (including creative use of space), and the Sweat Equity! All of the top yards receive prizes from our sponsors with the top yard receiving the Golden Rake from Arena Snowparks.

The snow was hit hard with rain last week, but Steve and his crew had the yard tarped for protection and brought in garbage cans of snow! The last few bits of snow were enjoyed for hours and hours!

Backyard Sessions 2014

BYS is a contest started by 250snow and Evolution, created to celebrate homegrown snowboard parks.

"Last year was a total experiment… We walked up to the first house and in the back of my head I had no idea what it was going to be like... It turned out awesome! The sessions were fun and the footage turned out great." (Co-founder Woody) "We thought it wasn't gonna happen this season - but we're doing it…! " The second annual Back Yard Sessions is on!! So get your shovels, grab your pals and show us what your back yard is made of…


The challenge is simple:

Shovel, Shape, Shred and submit "proof-of-park" by March 14th to shop@evolutionwhistler.com (proof of park via photos, vid if you want, and a description)

CRITERIA:

  • SESSIONABILITY - How great could the sessions be? Is it progressive? Technical? How many can Jam?
  • CREATIVE USE OF SPACE - We don't care how big your park, it is about how well you improvised with what you have to work with.
  • BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS - How much work had to go into it? For example: a hand shoveled drop in ramp so you can gap into the down... F yeah..

Submission should showcase these qualities, the best camera or cleanest cut doesn't win - it is about the best back yard park!

The top submissions selected will host Jam sessions with the 250snow.com & Evolution Crews as well as be documented by photographers and filmakers. The best session will win the grand prizes!

The Best Back Yard Park in Whistler wins ultimate bragging rights and prizes from:

Contest Session dates will ideally be within a week or so of the submission date. However, dates are pending snow conditions and subject to rescheduling or postponement as necessary.
