Who is your “best” team rider? Why are they the best?

Our team is made up of a wide mix of talent, for us its about how good they are at expressing them selves uniquely on and off the snow. let’s just say if we entered into a team contest against other shops we could hold our own..

Lick The Cat | LTC

For those of you who pay attention to the snowboard world the Lick The Cat crew is no new news. These guys have been killing it for the last few years with a stacked amount of guys who kill it. They seem to be in every best video part and in every magazine. We are stoked that Sam Taxwood is a part of the Celtek Clan. The Leines brothers remember seeing Sam for the first time and knowing that there was something special about the kid. Over the years they stayed in contact, and guess what they were right, Sam rips! We are stoked that Sam is going to have his first Pro glove with us this year and what better deign than that of Lick The Cat.

We love what all of those guys do and we think that Celtek fits right in with them. So not only providing Sam with his first Pro glove but Lick the Cat crew with a way to keep those fingers warm. Celtek started up in Salt Lake City and that is where they call home as well, and we love holding it down for our homies back home.

Pink Floyd Collaboration

No one goes through life these days without music having an effect on their life. Whether you are riding through the park, taking pow laps, or even just hanging out in the lodge or at home after a long day of riding music can uplift your experience. So who better to team up with than a legendary band who has influenced generations. Pink Floyd is one of those bands you heard your dad listening to when you were growing up, yet you still listen to them now that you are grown up. How many bands cross from one generation to the next, not many.

We teamed up with this amazing group to produce gloves that will keep your hands warm and also have the timeless design of “The Dark Side of The Moon” disk cover. This was Pink Floyd’s most successful album, and is loved by fans. Producing timeless hits, such as “Time” and “Money”, this album is full of incredible music.

UNLTD is located up in Banff Canada. The guys in the shop are true snowboarders and you can tell by walking into the store. I mean being up there in Canada means they get a lot of snow, so why not take advantage of it, right? So of course we asked them a few questions to see what makes them so rad! Make sure to stop by their shop if you are ever in town! Pick up some Celtek gear while you’re at it!

How long have you been carrying Celtek?

Where are you guys located and how long have you been in business?

We have to shops. The first on is located in Banff and opened it’s doors way back in 95. The second one is the next town over in Canmore and we opened it 5 or 6 years ago. So yeah we’ve been givin’ er for 20 years now!

 

How many store locations do you have?

Just the two

If you had a shop hall of fame who would be the first inductee?

Oh wow, some legends have put in time throughout the years here. I’d have to pick a group of people for sure. I’ll name a few but there are a lot of beauties from over the years. Amar, Yuta, Matt, Mike, Taylor, Landon, Luke, Maddy and of course the shop owner Dave who’s put his life into making this place what it is now.

 

Who is the employee of the month, or who should we ask for advice when we walk into the shop?

Honestly everybody on staff rules. We live in the Rockies and everyone at the shop is so passionate about snowboarding. You can ask anyone on staff and they’re all full of first hand information and experience because they live the shred lifestyle and do it every day the possibly can.

 

Any shop events or contests coming up soon?

Yeah we always throw some super fun season opener parties up at Lake Louise ski area and at The Devil’s Gap bar in Banff here. Everybody get nice and loose and we raise money for a Samaritan’s Purse program called “Turn on the Tap” which helps provide clean drinking water for families in some of the poorest countries in Africa.

What would you consider to be the local mountain to your shop?

Well we’ve got 3 mountains within a half an hour of Banff.  Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Mount Norquay. They all have their positives for sure. We usually just ride wherever the snow fell the deepest the night before or wherever has the funnest park.

 

Who is your “best” team rider? Why are they the best?

Oooooooo, haha, this is going to get me in trouble. Our team is pretty diverse. We have some really rad park riders that have been winning a bunch of the contests around and we’ve got team riders that are competing on a global stage in big mountain free ride events. I can’t really compare them but the best part about all of our team riders is that they all shred their faces off and just love snowboard and skating so much. We just want people who are perma-stoked up there and smiling from ear to ear, doing what they love.


Across The Divide

Hey do you like short movies that have snowboarding in them? Well we do too! Here are some of our local guys out in Colorado, Wylie and Blake, that have been killing it! So check out this sick little edit they made, giving an insight to what its like living in a city and snowboarding! There is something about going to school in there too, so consider it educational!

Mike Kovatch. He’s an east coast legend and is the mortar to our bricks.

Our annual Slash’N’Berm event at Killington is always a highly anticipated event. It’s a benefit banked slalom with natural unique features scattered throughout the course.

Each year the turn out gets bigger and the course gets better. Swing through for the festivities.

Killington, Okemo, and Stowe are our local mountains. And the Dark Park of course. Dark Park is our own snowboard park next to our Killington location. Open to everyone and lit up at night.

Who is your “best” team rider? why are they the best?
This is a loaded question.

Everyone’s different and does different things best. So… I’ll change this one to ,”When the snow’s good, what team riders would you fill the Darkside Van with?”

Max Lyons: Swiss Army Knife of camera knowledge and epic on the shred.

Dakota Whitaker: Overall Sleepy style and has the ability to defuse any stress with his awesomeness.

Tim Major: Prolific bag of tricks and motivation/energy to be admired.

Joey Leon: Grom in training.

Keenan Cawley: Unique animal with unprecedented ability to bring people together and make things happen.

Tyler Mills: Cinematographer and has proven skills in the battle for the streets.

Riley Nickerson: Smooth as butter.

Jesse Gomez: Big Gucci Gomez, grom graduating to Lrk’r with power style.

 

Judd Henkes Season Edit

This kid is insane! I mean most people wouldn’t even hit the features this kid is hitting, let alone that he is spinning 9’s on them! Most people take years to develop a clean style, not Judd, he looks cleaner than some of the pros. I mean talk about an up and coming star Judd is killing it! Check out his season edit here! It speaks for its self.

 

First Ever Hover Board?

How crazy is this? Someone made a Hover Board! Yeah the thing looks hard to control and turn, but its a hover board!!!! I wonder how it would work on the snow? I’d love to see someone take some laps with that this winter and see how it goes. Could you strap in? I mean the thing hovers over water so I’m sure it would over snow too! But how about that, and to think that it came from Lexus! Props to them! Well anyways check out this video if you haven’t!

 

High Cascade Session 5 Recap

They may not have as much snow as they do during the winter, but it still looks like a lot of fun. This may be the best session yet! If you havent already seen the recap video watch it here. This is a summer as summer can get, while snowboarding of course! Check it out!
