It’s hard to believe that winter 06-07 will mark the fifth anniversary of the event rightfully dubbed, “the anti-”comp.
In an industry riddled with standardized “open” events and made for TV contests we felt it was our job to change the way contests were viewed. Not only by the athletes competing but also by those in the crowd. It was our goal to create a ski event that would put the “fun” back into competition.
Despite those who said it couldn’t be done; no sooner than Orage launched the concept for the Masters in 2002, it had earned a spot on Freeskier Magazine’s “best events of the season” list.
Taking place every spring at Mammoth Mtn, Ca., teams consisting of 3 men and 1 lady have brought just about every mind-boggling trick in the book to our custom-built slopestyle course.
Adding to the “its all fun and games” attitude of the event, The Masters IV featured not only the best riding of the season, but teams dressed as characters from the wizard of oz, rednecks, pirates and Chuck Norris-esque ninjas.
And speaking of the Chuck Norris tribute team, a big congrats goes out to our reigning champs, Team Volkl!!!
So please don’t miss the 5th installment of the season’s most entertaining event…
The Orage Masters will be going down once again this May in sunny Mammoth, CA.
