TALES FROM THE DAWG: Team Rider Scotty Vine

Tales From the Dawg Banner for web

“Really stoked to see what Bear has to offer this season.”  Those are the words of Scotty Vine (team rider) who we recently caught up with while he was packing to go on a road trip across the country.  What’s he been up to lately?  Well he chatted about a couple of upcoming video projects to be released this Fall, including his Full Part IV with Arbor Snowboards, the Postcard Series V2.  He also made it up to Mt. Hood for a couple of sessions including one with High Cascade, but most of all he’s just been enjoying his time off this summer while getting stoked for the upcoming season at Bear Mountain.

TFTD Pics for Web (1 of 3)Scotty Vine has a long history with Bear Mountain and in particular the Hot Dawgz and Hand Rails (HDHR) event, having competed in every one since 2006.  In 2008 Vine won 3rd place overall in the event and also received the honored “Best Trick” award for one awesome Double Backflip over the most memorable jump in HDHR history along with winning the event in 2006 and 2009!  Asking Vine how long he’s been riding at Bear made him really have to think because he’s been with us that long!  “This has to be my 11th or 12th season riding at the resort,” said Vine. “Pretty much ever since Summit bought Bear.  Summit had Ego Trip and the Super Pipe in the early 2000’s and that stole my attention.  It just seemed like THE place to ride.”

Vine became a Team Rider for Bear (although at the time they weren’t officially called “Team Riders”) in the 06/07 season and every year since he has been a part of HDHR.  “It’s fun to be involved.  I love the creativity of the event and it always has such an innovative set-up.  It’s the biggest winter kickoff party and the best summer-time setup out there!”

We asked Vine to share with us some of his fondest HDHR memories from years past.  Among them were Yale Cousino’s sick hand plant at the West End Quarter Pipe from a few seasons back and last year when Tommy Gesme did a Back 270 Pull Back.  “I remember back in the day watching Bradshaw session the Down Rail that was set up on the steps down to the parking lot.  Every year it’s been fun watching the evolution of the entire event.”

Vine has never judged HDHR and when we asked him on his interest in doing so in the future he replied, “Not really my thing yet.  I still have too much energy and just need to be on that course.”

Join us Saturday, September 27th for this year’s 11th Annual Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails.
