Cataloochee Day Trips

The schedule for the next week just got posted. You check to see what your week looks like. Then, you notice you and all your friends have the same day off. It’s snowboard season. What do you do? Take a day trip to Cataloochee.

The boys hit the road last week and spent their collective day off in the mountains of North Carolina. The day started with a meet up at 6:30 am, then the 3-hour drive to Cataloochee, followed by 6 hours of snowboarding. For most of them, it was the first session on the mountain all winter. For all, it was a a great way to spend the day.

Next time you and all your homies have the day off together, make the most of it. Do something different. Do something together. And, most importantly, have fun.

Get Fitted – Snowboard Boots Done Right

Snowboard boots are the most important part of your set-up. I know, boots are not as sexy as the snowboard itself. Boots don’t have neato looking gadgets like your bindings, and they definitely won’t make as much of a fashion statement as your outerwear. So what. You better get a good pair or all of that other stuff won’t matter one bit.

Your boots serve three main purposes: to keep your feet warm, act as the main power transfer point between your body and your board, and ensure that your knees, ankles, and feet are safe and secure. If your boots don’t fit correctly, your are going to be missing one or all of these functions. Translation: a bad day on the slopes.

Everyone wants to ride comfortably, keep their feet warm and dry, perform well, and go home uninjured at the end of the day. Here is a boot fitting checklist to keep your days on the mountain epic.

Size Your Snowboard Right

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Christmas. Not Thanksgiving. And, definitely not Halloween. It’s snowboard season and it will be here before you know it.

The mornings are getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn colors, and the mountains of Colorado, Utah, and California are making their preparations for the season. So, what are you doing to get ready?

Most people start the season by assessing their gear and making sure they have everything they need to maximize their riding performance. After working in the snowboard industry for over fifteen years, I have found that the biggest problem most people have with their gear is that it is not sized correctly (thus hindering performance). Everyone seems to know how to fit a boot (start with your shoes size and make sure your longest toe is barely grazing the end of the boot liner) and the bindings simply need to match fit with your boots. But, snowboarders get stumped on how to size their board.

Welcome to the new AmbushBoardCo.com

Welcome to the new AmbushBoardCo.com. After 14 years of promoting action sports in the metro Atlanta area, Ambush has now officially entered the e-commerce scene. Until now, Ambush Boarding Co. relied on sister companies BuyWake.com, BuySnow.com, and BuySkateShoes.com to service our online customer. Now we are bringing you everything you need to ride under one virtual roof.

“When we launched Buywake.com in 2001 (and later BuySnow.com, BuySkateShoes.com, CheapSk8Shoes.com), our idea was to keep the brick and mortar store on a pedestal unto its own,” reflects Ambush, Inc. founder Chuck Morrow.
