It’s just a few weeks until the latest edition of the Grenade Games – an informal snowboard spring session held in a sunny park on April 20th, or ‘4/20’ as its known in the states. Grenade founder Danny Kass chose this date for his new event because, well… it’s when everyone in America who likes to deploy a certain herb in their cigarettes chooses to partake (‘420’ is the police code for possession).
We once visited the games for ourselves back in 2006, when it was held on June Mountain, California. And very chillaxed it was too – you can read all about it in this old magazine article.
This year the Grenade Games are heading to Whistler in Canada – home to some very pungent plants indeed. In anticipation, Danny Kass and his Australian hanger-on ‘The Dingo’ produced this frankly weird video, which is part blatant Monster energy drink ad (note the two hats) and part “Hey, I forgot to turn the webcam off.” Still, I’m sure his legions of fans will forgive him yet another Cheech and Chong moment.
