Tyler and Mikey share the podium at the Bro-Down
Simple Snowboarding’s Tyler Nicholson and Mikey Ciccarelli along with Irish-Russian transplant Seamus O’Connor put on a clinic in Slopestyle riding at the TTR 4 Star Billabong bro-down junior Slopestyle at Snow Park NZ over the last weekend. The three riders born between 1995-1997 threw down big, technical runs that would have come close to a podium position in the mens event.
After falling in the men’s event and barely missing the finals, the three riders destroyed the course and left the crowd in disbelief with their high level of riding skill.

Coulton Conway 1st Place
The YOU LOOK GOOD stop at Mont Tremblant is always a popular one for the Simple crew, and the rest of Ontario for that matter, it was a quick trip but a good one. We drove out Thursday, practiced Friday, competed Saturday, then it’s back home on Sunday. The practice day had beautiful, sunny, calm conditions and felt like the warmest -14 degree day of the year.
