This time of year can be a real tease for skiers and snowboarders alike. With little to no snow on the ground (anywhere near here at least), all of the top film crews and companies are finally starting to reveal last year’s shred-tastic footage to hordes of eager mountain-goers huddled over their laptops and tablets checking weather forecasts and waiting for their favorite resorts to announce what day they’ll be opening. While waiting for winter to show up, it helps to take comfort in numbers and on Friday, Nov. 1, there will be hundreds of like-minded boarders gathered at Ace of Spades (1417 R Street) in downtown Sacramento for Sierra-at-Tahoe and Ground Zero Boardshop’s annual snowboard movie release party. Two of the season’s most highly anticipated films will be aired: Nike’s Never Not and Transworld Snowboarding’s Nation. Submerge has seen parts, if not all, of both of these films and can vouch for how legit they are. Both movies feature some seriously next-level, mind-blowing riding courtesy of a who’s-who list of the world’s best snowboarders. Sure to get you stoked for the slopes. Admission is free, doors open at 6 p.m. and DJ Jurts will also be in the building. More info can be found at or
