Last month, Mystery District got to go to Mt. Bachelor and do some superparking, including parking a 40 foot trailer in the parking lot. We lurked in the shadows and creeped on some people. An awesome snowboard edit came out of it and we are in the running for this year’s Gatorade Video Showdown. Here is the link to the brackets. Our first round is against Arbor Snowboards. When the time comes, please add a little Mystery in your life and vote Mystery District.
GHOSTLAND. Not the observatory but the movie. Mystery District film guy Derek Weimer just finished up the second trailer for the Fall 2011 release. This second trailer showcases the more mountainous aspect of the crew’s snowboarding endeavors. If you can’t handle blood close you eyes for the first 30 seconds, it made us cringe too but still watch it and then come see it when it comes out this fall. Enjoy. Also watch the Street Trailer here:

The last weekend in may (Memorial Day Weekend) usually has people in some frenzy about hanging out in some gorge, thinking things are so beautiful but only because of some drugs and booze, because we all know it just rains gray and shines little in Oregon, those things aren’t pretty. But some people gather in the woods of Idaho and celebrate the life and times of Carson Ianson and others lost to another dimension. These folk also enjoy the beauty with mass amounts of booze and drugs and tents and dancing in fire pits. But with a day of snowboarding as the pre-gaming to all this. Here is the video of the 2011 Carson David Ianson Memorial snowboard extravaganza. Next year is the 10 year anniversary so with any luck we might even get the OG spot and the OG 1/4 pipe back rolling. Big thanks to Corey McDonald and Dustin Johnson for making the event all time every year. And thanks to all those that enjoy the times and enjoy the memories. With support from Dinosaurs Will Die, Bond Outerwear, Weekend Snowboards, ThirtyTwo Boots, Newts and Harold’s Boardshop, and The Water Ski Pro Shop.
A couple weeks ago, Newt and Harold’s and R Bar put on a charity auction for rider A.J. Ogden to help with his medical bills. $1500 dollars raised and some beers later, Derek got this put together documenting the evening. Thanks Boise! You’re awesome.
