Winston-Salem, NC — April 5, 2012 – Snowboarding will be a bit hotter during 2012. Chas Guldemond, one of the world’s top-ranked snowboarders, has signed on with Texas Pete to endorse the hot sauce on slopes around the world throughout 2012.
Guldemond is enjoying a scorching 2011-2012 season: taking first place at the World Snowboard Championships in Oslo, Norway; first at the Mammoth Grand Prix; first at the Burton Canadian Open; and recording top-10 finishes at the European Winter X Games (Tignes, France), Breckenridge (Colorado) Dew Tour, and Toyota Big Air (Sapporo, Japan).
