The Toyota Snowbomb / Alpine Meadows htto:// Sick and Twisted Big Air competition was Sunday, March 9. This HUGE competition included $5000 in cash, and great sponsor prizes. This year’s cash purse was Snowbomb’s largest sum to be awarded.

The event was a “big air” format in which competitors hucked a custom-built step-down jump at the bottom of Alpine’s terrain park while performing some of the sports’ latest tricks. Local and regional pros and amateurs of all ages of men’s and women’s ski and snowboard classes were included. The event’s venue was the Kangaroo lift, adjacent to the base lodge.

Each competitor received an hour of practice; competitors were scored on the best of two runs by official judges. Winners determined by amount of air achieved, style, trick difficulty, and, of course, whether or not the competitor sticks the trick!
