First to shred

Wondering what the first mass-market snowboards looked like? How they rode? Head to Ski Cooper on Saturday and find out. Cooper's hosting its King of the Mountain competition and exhibition to mark the 25th anniversary of regional snowboard competition.

There'll be slalom and downhill races and a rail jam open to the public. Cooper got 4 inches of snow Thursday and closes Sunday, so there's no putting this one off.

The photo? According to, it's a Bryce Kanights photo, circa 1984, of Tony Guerrero on an old Burton board. Plank.
