    Edit: Sponsorships are HERE!  NEED RIDERS FOR 2012/2013 SEASON.  Apply or PM me for more info.Team Sponsorship info available here


    I am considering seriously offering sponsorships this season.  You know, a cooperative for supporting riders and their passion as well as promoting FrostyRider.com.  Do you guys have any comments or ideas? Are you interested in being sponsored yourself? Let's discuss it a bit and see what comes of it.  COULD BE REALLY FUN!!!

    I know my friends and I would love to be sponsored for snowboarding. In fact we talk about it every weekend we go out. As for ideas I think just get some hats and stickers to start out with and maybe through competions aswell.

    I would definitely be interested Frosty!  8)For suggestions, it could be something small to start off with like bumper stickers and t-shirts, but you could also try using useful things that snowboarders use, like stomp pads, jackets, beanies, gloves, etc.

    t-shirts and stickers are probably the best way to get the word out.thats what i notice 1st when i meet people on the slopes. stickers onthe board and t-shirts their wearing.you could do something like those topsheet covers i was posting abouta month ago for anyone that wins a comp and is sporting a sticker or shirtor gear that gets your name out as a reward for props or something. startingsmall is a good thing, especially if you threw in an option of being able to takeyour favorite board and put a specially designed frosty rider "personalized" boardyou know? i think those topsheet stickers are full vinyl covers and start at like $60so its not a killer investment for a podium placement photo op of your website.you can also do mini rail jams at your local resort or get some of us to do them at ourhome resorts for almost nothing.  Paoli lets you put on your own contests all the timeas long as you front the reward. (last reward was $17.50, what the sponsor had inhis pocket haha)

    Cool Frosty!I have to admit I don't have a lot of experience, but I'm always on the slopes and I willing to promote your site.  Hopefully as I get better I'll help out more.  I have one question, when you say "inside the industry" what do you mean by that?Just keep us updated...  8)

    I guess I was trying to sound too cool there.  Just mean on the business end of things a little but.  Thanks will keep you updated.  Any other ideas?

    LOL... Well it does kinda sound spooky, yes, but it would mainly be stuff from the skier responsibility code.http://www.nsp.org/1/nsp/Safety_Information/YourResponsibilityCode.aspThe main point would be to make sure that those who sport our stuff are aware of the basic mountain safety and etiquette.

    For those that compete (lvl 3) you could do something simple to start like a seasonpass in lieu of being paid at their home resort. Some of em are pretty reasonableas far as price (even if its just a weekend or weekday 1 day a week pass or something,savings adds up!).Great idea on the test. You should do a phone interview as well so you're not gettingsomeone that looks good on paper but has a bad attitude when on the hill.(havent found anyone like that on this site though)

    This seems like a really cool idea and would make a really good oportunity for people.      id probably do part one 🙂      maybe hand out the stickers…..          someguy has a good  question.    I think you should email the test or maybe post it on the site as a download like in pdf or somethin.  And then you should have people print it out, take the test, and mail it back to you (real mail).  That would keep it legit.  imo

    Good idea.  I don't see any problem with doing it that way.
