Vans Hi-Standard, Mt St Louis


The 2015 Vans Hi-Standard snowboard series kicked off this past Saturday January 17, in the Junkyard snowpark at Mount St-Louis Moonstone, O.N.

Five dollar bills were flying everywhere as the 84 registered riders got paid for each styled trick they landed. With a total of $2000 up for grabs and $500 for the Van Doren Rail Best Trick, good weather and great snowpark conditions, everybody had a good time and a smile on their face.

Congrats to the day’s MVP, Coulton Conway and most improved, Cameron Mcdonalt as well as our Van Doren Best Trick 15 and under winner, Liam Brearely and Van Doren Best Trick 16 and over winner, Ben Poechman for bringing their best style to the hill on this windy day. Special mention also goes to William Buffey, winner of the worst bail award.

At the bottom of the hill, the Custom Culture activation with invited artist Jamez Townsend took place in the resort’s main lodge. Ivision Paul was the lucky recipient to take home the famous Vans Sk8-Hi giant shoe. Outside the lodge, the Vans waffle maker booth was in full effect as everybody was invited to try some delicious waffles while checking out the 2015-2016 Vans boots collection. Finally, Vans Snow team riders Dillon Ojo and Blair Mckinney were there to interact and ride with the kids.

Stay tuned for the next stop, January 24th at Le Relais, Quebec. – For all the details click here
