The votes are tallied for Week 2 and it was an absolute blowout by the Think Thank crew. With an over-whelming win, it looks as if we weren’t ready to see a repeat upset like we did in Week 1 when Nick Khater’s Video Gypsy took down TJ Schneider and his Snowboard Realms. Not at all, actually. Jesse Burtner’s brainchild toppled JTR productions this week and will be moving on to the next round to vie for the $5,000 prize

What’s your thoughts about this weeks contenders?
For those of you not in the know, Rubbish Heap represents the vision of filmer Jake Zalutsky. For years, Zalutsky has been a staple in the snow film scene, and since signing on with Flow, has had a hand in producing their team videos, such as last year’s offering Bad Reputation. The all black-and-white documentary style film showcased the Flow team on the road for six weeks, but Jake’s edit in this showdown is strictly from Superpark and not necessarily focused solely on his regular roster. Featuring: 2010 Winter Olympics bronze medalist Scotty Lago, Shane Fortier, Brandon Reis, Jeremy Thompson, Graham Hoffman, Kade Madsen, Chas Guldemond, Lonnie Kauk, Torgir Bergeim and more. Sit back, relax and enjoy Zalutsky’s edit and bask in the satisfaction that you are seeing the first and only time a Will Smith song will ever and has ever been featured in a snowboard edit.
Welcome to Mammoth.
Bienvenido a Mammoth.
What’s better than seeing riders chuck themselves off a 102ft jump? Watching riders chuck themselves off a 102ft jump filmed from a heli. And that is exactly what Tommy Little, Ivan Marcinko and his Northwest-based YKWII Media did. Not so much That’s It, That’s All style, but instead from a remote-controlled helicopter. At one point, there was a rumor circulating that Josh Sherman was in the cockpit flying the thing in order to sneak in to Superpark, but Marcinko and his gang put that fodder to rest real quick. Even though they decided to leave the riders’ names a mystery, a few that we caught were Austin Hironaka, Niko Cioffi, Lonnie Kauk, Austin Sweetin, Tyler Flanagan (Benjamin Button), Sam Hulburt, and obviously a few others.
