We have a lot to talk about

First off.
Head to our site to see the updated events calendar. This is the most up to date list of events The Edge will be sponsoring this year. Starting off Thursday with Warren Miller Screening at the awesome newly renovated Riviera Theatre in downtown Triple Ripple
(3 Rivers)
Then on Saturday, We're storming the Portage Skatepark with a snow rail competition under the lights (Starts at 7:00p.m.)

On to the new stuff:
Rocker is all the rage these days in snowboarding, Rome is into it with their 1985 Series of boards. Well, we were able to get our mitts on the all new board, the Postermania. Basically a reverse cambered Graft (already an amazing park board). There are only 200 in existence, we have three. Stop by to see the light. (Apparently, The Greek really likes these boards)

I'm really into boots, Celsius makes boots, I'm really into Celsius:

We have full size runs of some of the most comfortable, techie, lightweight boots out there.
Come try these great boots on, your feet will thank you

Black Friday - A Success

Here are a few snippets of the Black Friday Event. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. We Raised $400 to go to Boarding for Breast Cancer. Of course, no water :(
The Snowboarders Had a pretty good Session On the Rail.
and when they got tired of the rail, they tried backflips...

Well, It's snowing outside. That is both good and bad

First the good:
That is less snow we need to haul to our parking lot for our Black Friday Rail Jam.

The Bad:
The Lake is frozen behind us, so as of right now cold weather watersports looks like it isn't going to happen.

I've never prayed for hot and cold weather at the same time.
