Renewed Partnership Expands Giro’s Support of Progressive Park & Pipe Riding
(November 11; Santa Cruz, California) Giro Sport Design, the industry leader in progressive snow helmet and optics technologies, has a continued resort sponsorship partnership with Mammoth Mountain’s Unbound Terrain Parks as their Official Helmet brand for the 2015/16 season.
“Mammoth’s Unbound Terrain Parks define the very notion of progression and showcase the capabilities of Giro’s products,” said Brendan Murphey, Giro Brand Manager. “The next-level terrain parks at Mammoth are the proving and training grounds of members of our team and riders as a whole. Mammoth is the epicenter of park riding and progression. Mammoth Unbound embodies a legacy of pushing progression and attitude of evolving our sport in the same way we do at Giro, and we’re beyond excited to partner with them to help grow the next generation of park skiers and snowboarders.”
The continued relationship with Mammoth Unbound brings Giro together with organizations committed to lowering the instances of injury in their customers with inclusion in Mammoth Mountain’s Safety Month. Resort visitors will see an increased Giro brand presence on the entire mountain, with staff and coaches in Giro helmets like the Combyn and Ledge MIPS in ski/snowboard camps, during special events and demo days, as well as in marketing collateral, resort and signage, and on social media.
“The Unbound Terrain Park team has been working with Giro for many years and is excited to begin another season with them,” said TJ Dawoud, Mammoth Unbound Terrain Park Manager. “With safety as a top priority, their superior helmet products and technology help us stay dedicated to keeping both employees and guests safe and having fun within our 11 terrain parks.”
