SO you think you have what it takes to be part of the most exclusive shop team in the midwest? Prove it! send us an edit, attach a self-interview telling us all of your secrets, and while you’re at it recite the national anthem. We'll take it from there!
Some things you should consider before you send us anything:
We are looking for riders that are involved in the local ski and snowboard scene.
If you like to compete, great! We are looking for riders not afraid to be at the front and center at events.
We are all about communicating and spreading the good word around here, so being outgoing and stoked on asbco, skiing, snowboarding, the whole scene is a must! Sharing your stoke is a full time job....it beats flipping burgers son!
The youth is the future of the sports we love, so when in public set a good example for those little groms looking up to you. even when you think no one’s watching, those little dudes and dudests are peeping your every move.
We represent a over a hundred really rad brands at asbco. So if you are lucky enough to be chosen to represent our shop, you must rock these brands on and off the hill.
Above all else remember that the whole point of this thing is to have fun. There is no greater freedom than sliding down a snow covered hill.
Thanks for reppin out there ya'll!
