Sponzo lives in a bus with 18 other dudes for half of the season, you might have heard of this wild crew called the Gremlinz. He’s also one of Tahoe’s staple “dread heads”. When he’s not snowboarding you can find him giving lessons in how to party.
Places you’ve worked?
A&A boats in South Windsor CT, Gean Langen VW dealer in Glastonbury CT, Tow Truck Driver in Brimfield MA, Snowmaker and park crew at Killington VT, Roofer in Pittsfield VT, Snowmaker and park crew at Alpine Meadows, Park crew at Squaw. Wakeboard Instructor on Lake Tahoe and those are just the main jobs.
Last trip? Where and why?
A few weeks ago we took the Gremlinz bus to Denver for the world premiere of the “BusIt” movie.
Something else you could of done with your life instead of snowboarding?
I guess any of the jobs I listed before. I used to be really good at wakeboarding and almost moved to Orlando Florida to pursue that but snowboarding was definitely the right choice!
Vehicles you want or have?
I want to trade my Trailblazer in for a Pickup so it will be easier to get my sled around.
Words to live by?
Near death experience?
One time in Massachusetts I almost got crushed by a tractor trailer truck against a jersey barrier on the highway. I slammed on the brakes at the last second and barely got out of the way. The truck never even stopped moving over!
