The fall has been great in our backyard, sunny skies and breezy temps. Got to get out with the lens last weekend with the friends and shoot some laps at the new Tom Erlebach Skatepark in Star, Idaho. Good times skateboarding and good times to come. Skating by Loren Exon, Charlie Allen, and Parker Duke.
Our hills have been getting dusted with a few brave souls making hiking up the slopes to get those early season turns. We hope to be joining them soon on the ol’ snowboards. We’re getting pretty excited for the season to get fired up. While we wait, here’s some clips of UNHLYFOLK A.J. Ogden and friends getting saucy last season in the Boise hills and beyond. Snowboarding is fun and we’re ready for it. Enjoy. Big thanks to Bogus Basin Terrain Parks crew for stoking the stoke with fun stuff to ride all season.
Earlier this month in Boise, the annual Pray For Snow Ale Fest went down. This is the fourth year UNHLY has gotten to be a part of it. Put on by local bar, Tom Graineys, it attracts over 40 breweries from around the Pacific Northwest for patrons to gulp down. In addition to the flowing ale, the event brings in live DJs, cigar vendors, free whiskey sampling and an on-snow rail jam for skiers and snowboarders right in downtown Boise. The rail jam is put on by our local backyard oasis, Bogus Basin Mountain with head digger Corey McDonald at the helm. Basically it's bad ass event with beers and friends and snowboarding. Local young gun Julian Glick ended up taking home first place in the rail jam with a nutty 360 off the top of the scaffolding. Check out the recap video here. Video courtesy of Aerial Mastery
Congrats to Lucas Erlebach. Here's his Welcome To edit for Western Edition. It's heat per usual!

Dalton Beeson is flying high right now. He just got on Bacon Skateboards and here's a peek into the magic of why. Congratulations man! Check it out. Film/Edit: Derek Weimer.
If you're in the Boise area, there is little introduction needed for the excitement the reopening of Rhodes Skatepark has triggered in the Idaho skate community. But if you want to catch some feels and get hyped to roll, check out this quality piece by Sidewayz Films about the newest old gem in the gem state.
There's snow in them hills. The Boise, Idaho's winter scene is waking up. With Bogus Basin opening up the last couple weekends, with plans to begin full operations on Monday, we're excited to shake the jitters out and play in the Boise Foothills and surrounding mountains. Here are couple quick shots of the fun on boards from the past weekend with UNHLYFOLK A.J. Ogden and Loren Exon, shot by Yobeat's Brooke Geery who will be wintering in the City of Trees through March.
UNHLYFOLK Sean Ahern is moving onto the next adventure and breaking out of Boise. Ethan Banta compiled some footage, new and old, of Sean ripping on the trick stick. Look out Seattle, Sean is coming for ya.

Long time friends of Team Take Forever and Mystery District are premiering a snowboard movie in Boise, Idaho on November 8th. If you are around check it out. It's at The Crux Coffeeshop in downtown Boise. Leave it to them to have a snowboarding premier and not have a trailer yet but here is the poster. Apparently it's a Cumback. Also showing will be The Snowboarder Mag Movie: Foreword that our other long time friend Derek Weimer spent the winter working on.
