Snow Mountain Powder update.
Here @ SMP we have been working to get our Team and website ready for the 2005/2006
season. If you don't know about SMP here is what we are all about.
It all started back last summer when my old friend Brad Casey & I met up after
a 5 year time span. Over the years we had both developed a love for skiing.
We spent most of the fall of 2004 sitting around Sudbury, MA waiting for the
season to begin, We met up with a kid in our history class named Ben Zackin
who had made up a skiing group called Skiing Meatballs, and Pie, or as it came
to be called SMP for short. Brad & I thought that a ski "club" was a wicked
good idea. It was an excuse to show off in the park as a team and compete on
something instead of the "Wachusett Mountain freestyle team" which we thought
was way not cool. But the problem we found was how are we gonna get respect
with a name like Skiing Meatballs and Pie by January it was time for change.
(the original smp can still be found at http://www.freewebs.com/meatballskier
I came up with a much better skiing related name using the same initials SMP
that was much more skiing related. The name was Snow Mountain Powder. Brad &
I got much more respect skiing, and decided to seek a sponsor. We contacted
Liberty Skis and they came back with a offer we could not refuse. We were to
become their "Below The Radar" team a team with the same philosophy
as Liberty. Below the Radar riders for a Below the Radar company. We had some
work to do now, we had to gather a group of Undiscovered Talent riders below
the age of 21. That were sick riders but nobody knew about them, and that were
looking for the opportunity to be seen by the rest of the Newschool Skiing community.
One of the first things we needed was a website to tell people about SMP. So
we teamed up with Anna Benedetto a skier from CT with a extensive knowledge
of HTML and Photoshop. She designed a kick ass webpage that made our old site
look like well... bad. In June 2005 SMP teamed up with Whaleback mountain as
a Sponsor and the host of SMP Fest (details soon) By then Beginning of July
we had assembled a group of undiscovered talent that was SMP & Liberty worthy...
and that's where we met up to now.
