Last Thursday saw the kick off for the Subvert Summer Sessions, with Capita and Union taking over the slope at Beyond. Plenty of keen testers shuffled through the doors to take a first look at some brand new Winter 18/19 hardware offerings from The Muthaship Factory, Capitas very own production facility based in Austria, and the stylish Italian offerings from the Union stables. Far too much love was shown for the new Spring Break Twin, which defies appearances and is fully deserving of its title of 'Hottest All Rounder'. Ok, we made that bit up, but check the graphic out and you'll see where we're coming from...Did you catch a glimpse of the all new Union Binding, the Strata? Devleoped with a little help from Torstein Horgmo himself, it's got to be a contender for Best Looking Binding, that highback alone could grace the cover of Vogue!
So no sooner have we waved off the good folks from The Riders Lounge, the our attentions turn to the lovely team at Salomon, who will be bringing the new line-up through to us on Thursday 5th of July. This Summer Session will again coincide with the Chill Factore's current freestyle offering, the Terrain Challenge! Strap on your skid lids, grab the sexiest looking piece of Salomon kit you can find and start sliding....! All you need is a valid lift ticket, the rest is completely free of charge.
13/6/18 Subvert Summer Sessions are back again!
Subvert are running the popular Summer Sessions again, with the first one coming in strong on the 21st of June, Capita and Union product will be slopeside for a free of charge demo! You need a valid lift pass and that's about it, just rock up and ride whatever you like the look of!

Subvert x More Mountain Slushy Social 2017
We just got back from a cracking week out in Morzine and Avoriaz for the now compulsory annual event that it the Slushy Social. Thanks to our good friends at MoreMountain.com we all stayed in mega plush accommodation, did somebody say hot tub party?!! Huge thanks to MM’s Jon and Sam for making sure this years Slushy was yet again one to remember.
As those of you that have been on the trip will know, there’s a huge emphasis on fun but also a great chance to test next years kit well in advance of it being available to buy! We were lucky enough to have brand support from Burton, 32, Flux, Stepchild, Public, Nitro, Capita, Union, Salomon, Lib Tech, Gnu and Rome, and everyone certainly made the most of this unique opportunity. Slushy regulars are always switched on to the next big thing in snowboarding, so this ensured the demo room was bustling each night as peeps came back with epic tales of their adventures on the new gear and super keen to try even more!
Piste conditions were as expected at this time of year, well there is a bit of a clue in the name Slushy! Super fun Arare park laps, cruising down Prolays looking for side hits and far too many coffee stops is what makes this week the best one of the year, so if you fancy getting involved in the next one keep an eye out for Slushy 2018, booking soon!! Beware of imitation events folks, Slushy Social is, and always will be the original and best!!!
