Last season, the Arbor team stacked some insane photos with Snowboarder Magazine Staff Photographer, Ryan Hughes aka HUGGY.
The locals wouldn’t stop talking about how it was one of the coldest winters in the past century. That didn’t stop the Arbor Snowboards crew consisting of Brandon Hammid, Mike Liddle, Mike Gray, and LP Dorval from exploring the frozen city in search of new spots, never been done tricks, and good times.
A handful of Arbor riders converged on an insane setup for Big Bear Mountain’s annual pre-season rail jam, Hot Dawgs and Handrails. Erik Leon, Jake Schaible, Jon McDonald, Mike Liddle, and Buzz Hollbrook all showed up and threw down on a cross court setup littered with gaps, rails, rocks and even a small body of water.
The past two years, the crew from Arbor Snowboards have put together Superpark edits that have gone down in the books and this year is no different. Scotty Vine, Brandon Hammid, Curtis Woodman, Sammy Spiteri, Sean Whitaker, Yuma Abe, Erik Leon, and more showed up to Mt. Hood Meadows this May to pick apart the Superpark features and select creative lines, exhibiting the Arbor brand of Earth surfing, jump sending, and rail riding that typifies a solid Superpark offering. We are pleased to showcase the riding of this talented team in this edition of Parallel SUPER Parking.
The Arbor team heads to the land of 10,000 rope tows for some good old-fashioned high speed fun. Featuring Brandon Hammid, Scotty Vine, Sammy Spiteri, Sean Black, Austin Young, Mike Liddle, Tony Wagner, and Kayli Hendricks.

HOME MOUNTAIN: Elm Creek, MN
The frigid hills and swift ropetows of Minnesota have proved the perfect breeding ground for an entire generation of professional snowboarders over the past 10 years. The ability to ride late into the night after school and lap a feature 200 times in a day allow Mid Western jibbers to perfect their skills and progress at an unprecedented rate. This advantage cannot be seen any more clearly than in the rail riding prowess of Mike Liddle. We’ve only seen a handful of riders with as much power and finess as Mike and its only a matter of time before he makes his mark on the world of snowboarding.
