At the end of march Friedl Kolar and the aesthetiker crew hosted their "Wangle Tangle" event. Friedl gave us the lowdown... "Every year the aesthetiker crew tries to build a new obstacle for their snowboard contest. This year the idea of the ‘Taco’ came up and we decided to build it, We shaped for over 2 weeks not knowing if it was gonna work. It was hella fun riding that thing!" The photo of the bs carve was my first try ever". Check out pics and a quality video at www.aesthetiker.com.

Belzile and Cartwright have been filming with Alterna and had a cable cam session over the city hosted by Grouse Mountain.

In competition news Belzile took home a big novelty cheque after winning the Telus Big Air. He also walked away with a 2nd at the Telus Triple Challenge at Blue Mtn with a BACKSIDE 1260!!! Can you believe that a cab 1080 tail beat him into second?
