North Face Masters hits Snowbird

By Tim Roberts Jan 21, 2008

I was really stoked to hear that a Big Mountain Freeride Snowboard Contest is finally coming to Utah. The North Face Masters rolls into Snowbird on February 8 - 11th with a $45,000 purse up for grabs for the riders that shred the hardest. Utah, and Snowbird especially, are known for their amazing freeriding and nothings better for hucking off of big cliffs than The Greatest Snow on Earth, so it only makes sense to have a contest of this caliber at the Bird.

The North Face Masters features a $45,000 cash prize purse and an opportunity for Big Mountain snowboarders to pit themselves against athlete and mountain alike. The North Face Masters kicks off at Snowbird, Utah, February 8 -10, where competitors look forward to the notoriously challenging Little Cottonwood Canyon terrain littered with chutes, cliff drops, and the legendary lake-effect Utah powder.

With the induction of the 2008 The North Face Masters comes the gathering of the Big Mountain snowboarding tribe from all over the world. All male and female snowboarding competitors over the age of 18 are welcomed to participate.
