Kevin's taken his time, paid dues, is sitting on footage we'll all be seeing soon. The Interior Plain Project welcomes Kevin Gillespie to its ranks.
Minneapolis, MN- February 13th, 2018- On Friday night Feburary 23rd, a significant portion of Midwestern snowboarding's royalty, encompassing past, present, and future generations- will face off in an event like no other. They will amass under the nighttime lights at the legendary Trollhaugen Resort, just 50 minutes north of the Twin Cities. Those chosen will display their shred superiority honed on the ropes of the Midwest in a head-to- head battle of skill, style, and consistency. They will be judged by their fellow riders in a contest format comprised of a line of features. Only one shall prevail as "Lord of the Ropes" with a handsome purse of 2,000 dollars.
Thirty-two riders have been hand-selected from a vast group of worthy riders. Contestants include a Transworld Snowboarding Rookie-of- the-Year, a Vans Series champion, a Stairmasters champion, a Downtown Throwdown Champ, local heroes, and a man nicknamed "Danimals".
To ensure proper celebration and integrity, "Lord of the Ropes" pairs two strong courts of honor, The Interior Plain Project Snowboards and Fulton Beer, to make certain that order and honor are held in the highest regard. Visitors and spectators are encouraged to come out to watch the battles, share in the victories, and participate in the spoils of Skolhaugen's lounge where they can view the entire event from the bar, patio, or seat. Live music and a plethora of Fulton's finest brews will follow the outdoor festivities.
With the utmost respect,
The High Court of The Interior Plain Project.
We wanted to get an event out there that seemed to resonate in the current of media 2017. Drop all footage on the gram. So we're putting up a Sin Eater Collection Deck and some IPP softgoods for what the pilots will vote as the best instagram video. Additionally the video with the most view will snag some softies! Tag your fresh aka new video #instakilledthevideostar and make sure you're following @theinteriorplainproject and bang you're in the mix. I've seen a lot of later tags and well do better! Free snowboard on the line. Little over a week left to drop something for consideration. Come on now tell me you're not super hyped to ride some snow!?
Lets see it,
Love, passion, style, effort, snowboarding.

Road tripped to Mammoth Mountain for Snowboarder Magazines Superpark 20. With Boody, Skiba, the Oversons, Peter, Lavik, Kyle, and Zak we had the bases covered. We showed up to a mini spring snow shower which put day one on pause. No one seemed to care much as we lapped lifts and the Unbound park. Once we made it up chair 10 we set our eyes on some of the largest features we had ever seen. Each day brought variable weather and conditions. We lapped a lot, set up on a few things each day. Clips were stacked everyone rode strong and stylee. Stoked on the trip and belows some of the images and our edit. Thanks to Zak, all the pilots, Mary, Pat, T-Bird, Cody, Troll boys, and all the guys/gals who ripped Superpark 20.
