AYEE-ESSE HAPPENING BEAR MTN.
In April 2022, Russell held ‘AYE-ESSE’’s first event at Bear Mountain with the goal of bringing black culture to the mountains. As the first of its kind, this event was not about professional snowboarding, but instead about opening up mountain culture to people of all races and showing them how much fun and inclusive it can be.
The event brought 5k people together through their love of snowboarding, fashion, music, art, and more. The success of this first event proved the importance of creating a space where people can come together and collaborate/build with one another across industries, sub-cultures and mindsets.
