They just aired this piece of turd "competition" on NBC today.
I cannot believe they gave away $15K in prize money for first place. I was there and thought it was just a promo for Patagonia Sports or whatever... up the street.
Ridiculous... 4 rails... and 10 feet of vert. Thats a competition?
Snowboarding is so f'n lame.. the television needs to get off its nutz.
I was there walking around... and lets just say... the crowd was mostly dead quiet... it was so funny watching the TV broadcast today... with all the dubbed in hooting and hollaring.... I still am amazed that they got the sound " whhhhhooooaaaaaaaaaaa!" dubbed in on one jib I actually watched.
It really wasnt that spectacular... the crowd maybe had 8 diehard fans cheering hardcore.
Pretty funny stuff to watch.
Its almost like the world series of poker with all the poker chips clanging together on constant rotation.
