| Camelback Mountain Coaster Official Opening Day August 2012|
Camelback Mountain Resort of Tannersville, PA in the Pocono Mountains opened its new Mountain Coaster. Riders coast down a 4500 foot long high-tech steel track at their own speed, using a hand brake lever. The cars use gravity to propel them down and electronics to keep the distance between cars safe. Riders can tailor their experience to their own thrill level, traveling up to 25 mph on the banked turns.
Here we see the ribbon cutting ceremony, and Art Berry III kick off the new ride in his traditional new ride ensemble. Then watch and feel the ride yourself in our video. It's the next best thing to being there. More at http://www.cbkmountainadventures.com/attractions/NEW!-Mountain-Coaster.aspx

The Crash Reel is a new documentary about pro-snowboarder Kevin Pearce, directed by Lucy Walker, and you will meet both of them in this clip, and see a couple of clips of the movie. "The Crash Reel" was the opening night movie at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and is killing it on the Film Festival Circuit.

The Pearce family appears and adds the love that keeps Kevin going through his 3 year and continuing rehabilitation from TBI - Traumatic Brain Injury. This movie is not to be missed, it brings the story of a snowboarder to the mainstream public, as well as to the snowboarders of the world. This video by Lauren Traub Teton, for SnowboardSecrets.TV.
