For the sixth annual Superpark, Powder has partnered with Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort in Bend, Oregon, to continue this vision. “The goal of Superpark is to give the world’s top park riders an opportunity to evolve their sport and create unique photos and film footage in a relaxed environment. Mt Bachelor and the Inn of the Seventh Mountain offer the perfect venue for this event,� says event producer and Powder’s editor-at-large Keith Carlsen.

This year’s roster includes veterans such as Candide Thovex, Tanner Hall, and Vincent Dorion, plus rising stars such as Sean Pettit, Josh Bibby, and Niklas Karlstrom.
