Go do the one universal trick that all snowboarders can do–slash pow. Have your bro/girlfriend snap a photo of it and send ‘er in. After we’ve received enough photo submissions we’ll get a gallery going. Photos will be judged by a select group of heavily intoxicated veteran pow slashers after which a winner will be decided.
What makes a winning pow slash photo? Ef if we know. That’s where you come in.
photo must be a pow slash.

We are sponsoring a vertical challenge and up for grabs is a new 2012-13 K2 Fastplant for the men and a new Eco Lite for the women.
To participate you must download and use the Alpine Replay app for Android and iPhone to track your vert at any mountain in North America. Vertical feet will be accumulated over the next two weekends, March 17-18 and March 24-25.
The top 30 contenders will be entered to win a new board for both men and women. Those who log at least 1,000′ will be entered to win K2 accessories at random.
Riding smooth and technical Canadian Brooke Voigt took the win over the all American field of riders at her first GFFT Finals. Brooke’s run started off with a 50-50 on the first rail, into a 50-50 frontside boardslide, then a tailgrab off the cannon rail. She then landed a smooth frontside 360 on the first jump, earning points from the judges for her execution. This win solidify’s her entry into next years Dew Tour where we’re sure she will make a statement with her technical riding and hard charging attitude. Congrats Brooke!
