For'am, Greg Bretz, came out to battle the elements in the 8th Annual Fiesta De La Pipa, hosted by Mammoth Mountain. With speed being a major issue in the days event, Greg took out a grip of his frustrations on one of the pinatas and brought home a few grand for his valiant efforts.

Between stops of his intense contest schedule, Greg Bretz enjoys riding Mammoth when he gets to go home. While he's in town, he spends time filming for their upcoming park release, "Hot Laps". Below is a little teaser and some heartfelt feelings from Greg on his home mountain.
The annual Demo Days celebration was held for Southern California retailers at Mammoth Mountain. Forum staff was on hand turning screws and getting everyone set up (and set back) to ride some powder. In between all the slashes and tree runs, buyers were welcomed back to the tent to check more decks, and grab some grub off the grill, compliments of Chef Dewey.
Although the weather in Mammoth felt more like late Spring than early Winter, the mountain provided many with their first turns of the 2008/2009 season. For'am Team riders Trevor Jacob, Greg Bretz, and Niko Cioffi were around to take a few of their own as well, along with their first jumps and jibs; some of which are documented below.
