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!
