Subvert x More Mountain Slushy Social 2017
subvert 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 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!!!
