Each demographic has its ideal terrain. For the toddler, a playground. For the skateboarder, a skatepark. For the man who photocopies his butt, YouTube. But what sort of beefy arena do you give to raw snowboarders, battling it out for a 10k cash purse? Seven Springs had a pretty good idea. The setup they supplied for the Burton Qualifiers Finals was playful, creative, and as gnarly as they come—perfect for these mettlesome invitees. The pool of riders coming into this prestigious grand finale was scarily talented. The uncanny breed of humans who didn’t just experience birth. They probably stomped it. That may sound absurd, but just watch the recap video, and you’ll see what we mean. Stomped, we say, brazenly stomped.
