Murdered Snowboarder on America's Most Wanted.

Ben Bradley was a snowboarder who was hitchhiking from Fraser Colorado to Jackson Hole for his birthday in 06. In Rock Springs Wyoming his journey took a turn for the worse and he was murdered. Ben was an avid backcountry snowboarder and owned a custom Neversummer splitboard. Production number 55. Mine is number 101 I believe. AMW did a feature on his murder as it remains unsolved. His splitboard has never been found and could be a big clue. I've posted about this before years ago an it's time to bring it back. Here are some pics of a replica split that the Blaho Bros made for the show.


Needless to say the police would like to find this board.

You can watch the episode on Hulu here.

It would be great to catch the low life scum who did this...

Jesus, it sounds like the guy currently in prison knows something. Events like this really make me cringe and I wish there was something I could do personally.

I caught the show randomly the other night. Horrible story, and I hope that they do find out what happened. Did anyone notice that the one rider they interviewed was Jessie from last season's bachelorette? Yeah, I know, I got roped into watching it with the old lady, but it was good to see a fellow rider win!

I've never seen one of these boards in person, but I'll be looking out for it...

Amen brother. Since I'm moving to CO at the end of march, I have to get my CO CCW ASAP, since my VA CCW isn't recognized.



My grandfather told me a story about him and his two friends hitching from NC to CA and back with a 100.00 between them back in the 30's.

He said sometimes the people he was riding with would leave them three in the car while they went into a store or what not.

Can't do that shit nowadays
