1. Mission Statement & Overview of our Snowboard Websites –
Winter 2005 – 2006

Mission Statement: was started in April 2003 by Lauren
Traub Teton, as a resource of original content articles, to share the joys
of snowboarding with readers, and to encourage those not in the “traditional
snowboard demographic” to give this fantastic sport a try.

Overview: The website has grown to over 100 pages in size, and spawned
several other online resources for snowboarders (listed below) as rider
needs and solutions became apparent.

The sites are provided free as a service to our riding readers and (elusive)
profit is not by any means our main motivator. Our site visits are growing
fast, often doubling month over month of the previous year.

A few select products that we use and heartily endorse are for sale at to help pay the rent.

We appreciate your media coverage of our sites!

snowboard serial numbers online when their boards are safe. If their boards
disappear, we post “missing” next to their board description.
It¹s easy to find your serial number online if you need to report a missing
board to the police, even if you¹re away from home.

it¹s not one that was reported stolen. It¹s bad karma to ride a stolen


This will be the third season for the “Biggest Snowboard Events Calendar
Online.” Last year over 200 events were listed on the East Coast Calendar
alone. Last year a “California” section was added to the

Events are competitions, camps, clinics, parties, and other special events.
The calendar was designed to be easy to read and uses color coding for the
different states.


Winners of snowboard events can pop up from anywhere.
As a journalist covering a snowboard event, have you ever tried to get
background info on an upstart competitor, and you can¹t find a thing online?
This happened to me at the US Open last winter. So I conceived this new

This will be a database of profiles of snowboard pros and sponsored riders.
