Old Seven Bridges Road sled hill

I remember fondly tubing down a hill on Seven Bridges Road. You used to be able to rent tubes from the chalet. They have a nice lighted trail system for cross-country skiing at Lester Park. What would be needed to get the sled hill going again?

Duluth Snowboarding Crashes Video

While filming for our last snowboarding video we gathered some great crash footage! Enjoy! Video by Higher Base Media.

Duluth Snowboarding Video

This is a video of Mitch Larson snowboarding all over Duluth and at Mont du Lac. It was created by Higher Base Media.

Can you figure out where all of the spots are?

Check out the video and please let me know what you think of it! We have poured so much time and effort into this video over the past few months and we would love to hear what you have to say.

Higher Base Media is a Duluth-based group that is focused on creating unique video and photo content.

Mont du Lac Snowboarding

Location of the old ski jump in Fond du Lac

I know there was a ski jump in the Fond du Lac neighborhood, close to Mission Creek. I’ve been on the trails on that steep hillside and have found a small concrete pad in the woods, pretty close to Mission Creek. Would the ski jump have been near this small pad? Also, on top of the big hill I have found some overgrown, wide trails that almost look like they could’ve been some type of maintenance/service trails for the ski jump. Is this related to the old ski jump?

Transworld Snowboarding video contest – Vote for your local shop!

Damage Boardshop over on 1904 W. Superior St. submitted a quick shop edit to Transworld Snowboarding‘s website for its Neff: East vs. West shop video contest.  For all of you metal fans they used a song by Class of ’86 and edited without all the foreplay, getting straight to the point and making it last a little over 2 minutes (which is totally normal for most of those guys.)

Everyone can vote one time (tracked by I.P.) so if you really like it and you’re at work go make your rounds on all the desktops!  If you don’t like it STFU and make your own last-minute edit.

I also heard a rumor if you vote and run into the owner at any local establishment that serves alcohol (e.g. Carmody, Lucé, Black Woods) he’ll buy you a shot of Patron.

Lutsen Mountain Meltdown

Where are all the avid Lutsen shredders at?  Upon moving to the Duluth area a few years ago I had my first Lutsen Mountain experience in 2009.  I was so disappointed that I had NEVER been there.  We are so fortunate to have snowboarding/skiing of that quality only a short drive away, especially because you get to look at the beautiful Lake Superior while doing so, which is also possible in Duluth, but up there you don’t have the industrial eye-sore.
