The opportunity to take runs with your favorite professional snowboarder is a highlight for the campers that flock to summer snowboard camp. This summer, Ride and K2 upped the ante for a group of groms who participated in the second SNOWBOARDER Magazine Summer Games event, Team Sports. With the support of three pro captains from K2 and three from Ride the campers had to land a series of jump and rail tricks in order to claim the ‘W’ for their respective team. In the end, it was Minnesotan Dan Liedahl’s crew that came out on top and earned the first-ever Team Sports title.
Team Sports is part of SNOWBOARDER Summer Games. Stay tuned for more photo and video coverage from each of the Summer Games events. Nexen Tires is the official tire sponsor of the SNOWBOARDER Summer Games.
Snowboarding is passion, snowboarding is inspiring and creative; it’s high fives and powder mustaches. Many of the best days to be had are in white out conditions, in the heart of the storm, yet fully comforted by the solitude of the trees. This is snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest, in our own backyard.
The true beauty of snowboarding, though, is that every person has they’re unique outlook and whether your backyard is Mt. Baker or a golf course in West Virginia we encourage you to explore that territory and reacquaint yourself with the comfort that snowboarding brings. The friendships that it strengthens and the excitement it instills.
Follow along as we portray our season every other Tuesday from now until the start of January. This is “Our Backyard,” where’s yours?
