The game of S.N.O.W. is going down a little differently this year. We grew tired of the rigid list of 16 riders per bracket and we wanted more people to come hangout and ride. The solution was clear, we invited a bunch of people to Big Bear to ride the park, and have a qualifier contest to narrow the field down to cut straight to quarterfinals.
Sitting at “the scene” just above the sun deck, the field of talented riders put on a show for the locals in the 1.5 hour jam where each and every rider gave a taste of their signature style.
Judging was no easy task, but Harrison Gordon and Jill Perkins were up for the task. Despite a couple tough calls, the list shook out as follows:
Garrett McKenzie vs Phil Hansen
Drayden Gardner vs Sam Klein
Pat Fava vs Marty Vachon
Austin Visintainer vs Riley Nickerson
Grace Warner vs Egan Wint vs Lex Roland
Lauren Derminio vs Danyale Patterson
Jenise Spiteri vs Anny Vongsavanh
Audrey Doan vs Emily O’Connor
