Kinger just got his next year Valkyrie 158 in the mail from Compatriot HQ. Here’s what Rob had to say, “So stoked to get my new Compatriot RK Valkyrie 158 in the mail yesterday! It’s so fun to see my graphics come to life!”
It’s been a long, hot summer, friends. But the end is near (grab a beer!). Winter will soon be here. Compatriot Harry Kearney has been maximizing the long days and getting ready for winter. He sent over this photo from Red Mountain Pass from this past spring and had this to say, “So the snow was horrendous at that time in spring, massive dry spell, so we were trying to get creative and went and shot at night. Everything about it was sketchy but the method felt right. Its up on Red Mountain Pass. Fun time. Its been a summer of Sabbath for me man!“
Harry Kearney’s Top 3 Albums of Summer ’12:
1. Black Sabbath:Vol. 4
2. T.S.O.L: Change Today?
3. Pantera: The Great Southern Trendkill
If Pantera can’t alert the snow gods, than nothing will.
Winter isn’t quite over yet. I know the lifts have stopped spinning in Jackson Hole, but they are saying 2-3 feet of fresh in Tahoe by saturday morning. It’s always winter somewhere, and thankfully, we’ve still got some white stuff coming down in North America. Lifts, sleds, helicopters, snow shoes – get out and get some before it’s too late.
Rob Kingwill has been busy of as late. Filming a Mercedes Benz commercial last week (can’t wait to see this one), filming tons of pow with the 4FRNT crew at out in Jackson and getting ready for a trek up to Alaska in April for Tailgate Alaska and King of the Hill. Yeah, Kinger. Here are some new snaps from the Jackson Hole Snowboarder Mag of kinger himself. Ruling it.
It’s been dumping in Jackson Hole in case you have been sleeping under a rock. Haven’t had a face shot of pow this week? Haven’t had 40 to 50 or so like, Rob Kingwill? Well, you better watch the video above then and start planning your trip to Jackson Hole, or somewhere in the Northwest as low tide persists elsewhere.

Steve Fisher rules. The 2007 X Games Champion seen here at this weeks X Games on a Rob Kingwill Pro Model. Heck yeah! Steve going humongous in the superpipe. Thanks, Steve. Have you ridden a Compatriot board this week? Get at it.
Here are some more images from the archives. Just a little something to keep you stoked until you make it to the mountains. Mike Mahron tweaks while the JHMR Tram creaks. Be sure to join our Facebook Community for updates from the team.
