1. 3rd Rail Jam – 8 Stops – Killington and Mountain Creek Now

You may already know from my writing and videos that I consider rail jams the best snowboard spectator event and the most fun to watch. The action is close, the tricks are unbelievable, there’s music, and great vibe from the crowd. You don’t have to be a snowboarder or skier to get close to the action because it’s at the base of the mountain unlike at most other snowboard events. But do wear thick soled warm boots with tread!

SnowboardSecrets.TV, my video channel, is proud to be a sponsor of the 3rd Rail Jam Tour, with 8 stops nationwide. The tour encompasses a freestyle hip-hop concert judged by top DJs and urban graffiti as well as the rail jam. The “Battle Below Zero” will have as many as eight MCs performing their best tracks and being judged on their swagger, flow, style, lyricism, and their ability to rock the crowd.

I am headed to Killington, Vermont for the first stop, this Saturday New Year’s Day, at the main base by the Gondola. Action starts at noon. Sign up on the site for the after-party, at the Wobbly Barn at 9 p.m. You know there will be some great music and dancing there!

Next Sat. Jan. 8 the 3rd Rail Jam action is at Mountain Creek, Vernon NJ. Come over and say hi to me and get some stickers. I’ll be wearing the crazy jacket from Grenade that you’ve seen on

Rider registration is open and the other stops on the tour are:
·  January 22, Raging Buffalo, Ill.
·  January 29, Echo Mountain, Colo.
·  February 5, Arizona Snowbowl, Ariz.
·  February 12, Bogus Basin, Idaho
·  February 19, Mountain High, Calif.
·  February 26, Beech Mountain, N.C.

Speaking of www.SnowboardSecrets.TV, the site is absolutely rocking! I’ve posted 132 videos of snowboard life, athlete interviews, event and party coverage, favorite lodgings. snowboard safety and comfort tips, USASA, snowboard fashion, and more!

We’ve had almost 150,000 views. Check it out, it’s organized so you can find things easily, using the TV Channel Online (TVCOL.TV) interface template that we developed (and can license to you so you can get a video or article indexing site like this up in a week! And posting videos is super easy!)

Want to see inside the Xandau Snow Park in the Meadowlands, NJ, that’s in the news? We have the ONLY video online of the inside at
Rails to Riches 2010 Rail Jam at Killington? It’s there. Snow Film Festival NYC, it’s there too on www.SnowboardSecrets.TV!

We also launched a new TVCOL.TV site YESTERDAY called www.SnowboardNews.TV. If you’ve got news and/or video on a resort, product, event, or other, we’ll post it! It’s $20 and your item will be seen!

 4. Flexmeters Snowboard Wrist Guard Video

Don’t wait until AFTER you sustain a wrist injury to wear wrist guards!!

I have been the importer and distributor of Flexmeter Snowboard Wrist Guards and Gloves for over 5 years. Flexmeters, by Docmeter, are a line of snowboard wrist guards recommended on where it says:

“My personal preferences would be the Flexmeter or [other] systems - both of these have been designed by doctors active in the management of snow sports injuries and both have considerable data to support their effectiveness.”

I get tons of testimonials from my customers on the Flexmeter Wrist Guards and Gloves and excellent customer service we provide and many of my first customers are now coming back for upgrades.
Testimonials here:

We sell Azzpadz tailbone protector which are almost invisible beneath your snow pants. You can see how the Azzpadz saved MY butt in the halfpipe at USASA Nationals last spring when I fell off the halfpipe wall, in the video.

See our videos on Flexmeter and Azzpadz and they will answer most of your questions on which product to choose and sizing at

We are the only ones who sell a wrist guard with DOUBLE protection, on the palm and dorsal side, as well as stand-alone wrist guards for skateboarding, Trikke, and other sports.
