Like all other stops of the Vans Hi-Standard Series the day was broken up into two parts: a Big Air-style jam and the Van Doren Rail Best Trick, where another $500 would be up for grabs. The jump section featured two different take-off options, a 25 and 45-footer to make it fun for everyone. The rail section was made up of a flat tube, a down rail, and a down rail with a donkey, which was just asking for transfers.
“The best part of snowboarding is the camaraderie and fun, and today showcased that perfectly,” Pelosi said, summing up the day.
Up-and comer Finn Finestone took home lots of $5-ers and earned MVP for his great style and killer board control all day. The 12-year-old, whose dad Brian is the terrain park manager at Whistler Blackcomb, is definitely one to watch in the future.
