Fan Love - Ladies Update

Much love to all our fans out there that have been keeping up with STANCE, rewatching, and feeling the love.

Lately we've had some action on Twitter that we're STOKED to see..

Been following the Olympics? STANCE ladies Torah Bright and Gretchen Bleiler were all over the talk shows and coverage during the womens' events. Killing it!

Even NPR picked up Torah's halfpipe win - random but cool.

Had a chance to get out into the backcountry yet this season? Things have started to PUMP again here in Utah. Over the past few days we've gotten enough snow to fill in previously thin zones. Have a look..

Some shots of Torah from last season below...

Video Thursday: Air Guitar / X Slopestyle

Here in the Wastach we woke up to snow this morning, and there's only one thing to say about that: awesome. Feels good to see that white stuff falling from the sky once again. There's been a bit of a drought here in Utah lately.

In case you haven't seen there's a little bit of snow in Washington, DC though.

Hopefully you caught X-Games this year. In case you didn't a couple of the Stance ladies cleaned up, including Jenny Jones who returned to secure another gold in slopestyle.

Gretchen has been busy too, besides doing her own damage at X she's been filming a few Olympic-type commercials. Shredding the air guitar is one of her many skills.

Scope the ladies' Oakley collection over at if you're craving some goods.

Follow us on Twitter (@stancemovie) and go get some face-shots.

X Dance, X Games Gold, Grand Prix - Jan Recap

Wooo, January was a busy month! Below is a recap of the events, the glory, and the goodness that welcomed STANCE into the new year. Hopefully everyone had a chance to get some turns in already, winter is in full effect.
What happened in January?
  1. STANCE was welcomed in XDANCE and nominated for "Best Cinematography", "Core Film", and "Soundtrack." Tons of shredders came out to support the cause and the good times rolled!

  2. Grand Prix event at Park City named the US Olympic Snowboard Team, we caught a glimpse of what Vancouver will look like in the pipe, and it bombed snow!

  3. Gretchen Bleiler wins her 4th X Games gold medal in pipe, drops a serious 9 on the first hit of her second run, and all around good times are had. Add that win to the 1st place at the Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix stop and January shaped up to be a pretty sweet month overall. Also, the LA Times just dropped a piece on Gretchen, noting that she has "crossover appeal". Cleaning up!

  4. STANCE webisodes have been periodically dropping (follow us on Twitter for updates: @stancemovie). Check out webisode #4 for some ridiculous action by Raewyn Reid.

Bottom line: If February looks anything like January we're going to have tons more news to bring you. Thanks for sticking around and checking out the blog!
