Hello all. So the first weekend of Shred camp is over and done with…but we’ve got some pictures to remember it by. The campers ripped it up: in the gates, up on Summit, off of the Sammy Carlson jump…. just kidding. But they could have.

So here are some shots from this past weekend. Check out the details for next weekend’s camp here

There are only a few spots left for this upcoming weekend…so sign up now and come Shred with me at Mt. Bachelor :)

I love to ski.

Radim Palan is 25 years old skicross racer from Czech Republic. He is overal winner of FIS Czech Skicross Cup 2012. At this time he lives in Prague, but his heart and his mind is and always was in the Mountains all the time. He has just finished his studies on University of International relations and he works as project executive for a big medical company.

He also runs his own small skiservice and leads ÑFreeMindì snow team reporting at www.dropit.cz. “Shred should be with me all the time and everywhere – doesnt matter if is cold, hot, if I am tired, injured, drunk or have to work…”

He chose Shred because of crazy colours, TOP quality and amazing people who rides in it. And vice versa Shred chose Radim because of his exceptional and extraordinary approach to what he loves – doing all kind of crazy stuff :-)

We think that more than any words the following pictures from Radim¥s shredding will tell you that this guy is a shredder by heart…

Stephan works with the SHRED and SLYTECH team and loves to ski, surf, sup and windsurf.

In a sport where protection is paramount to survival, more and more racers look to Shred for safe equipment that makes a statement. Swiss Ski Team Racer, Marc Berthod Chooses Shred.

SHRED is stoked to announce the addition of Marc Berthod to their expanding global team of skiers and snowboarders. 

Said Berthod after his first sessions with his new gear, “I’m happy with everything, the helmets fit perfectly. I’m proud to be a member of the Shred team!!”

Marc has been our target for a while, so after a few years of productive collaboration with Slytech Protection it was high time to get him fully on board with SHRED helmets and goggles. He is one of the skiers that pushes the limits beyond the norm, bringing his own style and personality on the hills of the World Cup.

He is a perfect fit for the brand and he has the image of the Shredder on and off the hill. We are looking forward to see him back on the podium. SHRED on, Marc.

Marc Berthod joins other Swiss Shredders on the team, including snowboard legend Romain De Marchi.

Shoot him a congratulatory shootout on Facebook: http://facebook.com/shredoptics at the wall post.

 So I’m heading back to Bend tomorrow to host the “Shred with Laurenne” camp at Bachelor (begins on Saturday). I’m teaming up with Mt. Bachelor, Shred, Atomic and The Race Place to put on the camp. Ted Ligety is also joining me for the weekend, so there will definitely be some speed and ripping involved. We’re going to set up some GS gates, but it’s up to the campers whether we train or free ski…. either way, we’re gonna tear it up.

There are two separate weekends of Shred camp….first weekend with Ted is full, but there are a few spots left in weekend #2. Check it out here. You can also get the details on my website: laurenneross.com

Shred and Atomic are giving out some free gear at the camp, and spots are limited (12 per weekend), so most everybody will take home some sweet swag: junior helmets, goggles, Atomic all-mountain skis, shirts, hats, and more.

THANK YOU to SHRED, MT. BACHELOR, ATOMIC, and THE RACE PLACE! Check out the details and come rip with me, Ted and Shred over the next two weekends at Mt Bachelor!!!

Ohhh boy… get an email like this and you just knoooow the weekend was a crazy one.

Hey Stephan what’s up man? The pic is me and RDM obviously it was taken at super park this past week in Bend, Oregon. We spent the week shredding and partying together. Was so fun! Hope all is well and talk soon.


PS: we’re gearing up our summer sweepstakes where you’ll be able to win Shred Sunglasses and a Slytech Protection Kevlar Vest. We’ll do 2 drains a month through August. More later…

short update:

Tuff season start! Three days ago I almost died. Thx to Steve, CK and Beckna for telling us that a barbed wire fence was crossing our landing! I was shocked when I saw the two meter metal poles 10cm under the snow!

I had some intense days with Grilo so I rested two days before I drove to Zillertal on Sunday! The thing with resting days is that the pain is coming out! So I had already back pain when I got to Zillertal and on the first day shooting I twisted again my back super bad so that I had to ride and jump with super back pain! So my body is kind of fucked now and I need some more resting days and some therapy!

Thx to Werni, Christian, Mau and Justin for some nice but intense three days!

stay tuned!

Here are some pics of the kicker and the landing area that had the metal stakes and barbed wire… ohhh boy, Marco Feichtner, you one lucky SOB!

For many of us, the season was a bit of a bust. If you lived up in Whistler or you’re at the level of a Romain de Marchi or JP Solberg and get to travel wherever the conditions are tip top, then you may have experienced scenes like this from YES It’s a Movie…

It’s been a while since I’ve been updating you… Not much time in front of the computer, instead tons of time spending outdoors in the mountains… So a lot of things happened…

Recently I just came back from a film/fototrip from Morocco… It’s been a blast, so many impressions in such a short period of time… There’s a video coming out in autumn, so I’ll keep you posted about that… As the story also will be published in various Ski magazines just a glimpse…

still some hours to go... hiking in the Atlas mountains to finally ski African snow...


Finally the video of my skisponsors teamweek, where I’m also part of it, is online…


It’s April now and thank goodness there is still lots of snow in the mountains… Just got 20 cm fresh yesterday… So what to do? Of course, SHREDDING :-)

Here some impressions from the day…

from the helmcam perspective...

...booom... Babycliff...


fresh pow :-)


Hiked a pretty impressive colouir the other day – here’s the video how it was…


Enjoy the rest of the winter! Summer will be here soon…

Take care and all the best,
