Spring Contest Mayhem

by Park Rat Tom April 12 2013 1 Comment

Get here while you can!

 

Transworld TransAm, Park City Mountain Resort

The Transworld TransAm visited PCMR during it's 11th year this spring with one of the most creative setups in snowboarding. The lower Three-Kings area was turned into a knuckledragger's carnival with close to a dozen vendor tents and seriously sweet prizes to giveaway. The folks at IRPC constructed a skate-style bowl filled with a plethora of features for every type of rider...hips, wallrides, rails, bonks, transfers...the list goes on. The loose jam-style-format provided non-stop entertainment with over 100 riders battling out for a creative line through the course.


Volcom Peanut Butter & Rail Jam, Brighton Resort

FACT: Combine a fun rail contest with free food and you'll have the snowboard gypsy's flocking. The Volcom PBRJ went off at Brighton this year, being the last qualifier before finals at Mammoth Mountain on April 20th. You can always expected the heaviest rails manuevers at this event. With Milly as the new location for events at Brighton Resort, you can always expect a good time and ample viewing area from the patio. 


Spring Session, Powder Mountain

There are no bad days at Powder Mountain, and closing weekend proved that theory once again. The Spring Session included a series of mini-contests throughout the day, with prizes casually handed out for nifty manuevers. There was a best downrail trick, spin-to-win, high ollie, and 100 foot box contest which kept the event fresh all day. A perfect way to end the season at Powder Mountain, thanks for all the memories!
