Much like the riders who show up to The Launch every year, the event wouldn't be what it is were it not for the non-SNOWBOARDER staff members that attend in order to document all the action that goes down on the hill. It gets hectic and frenetic up there, so we need as many lenses as possible in order to make sure we're not missing anything during the day-long sessions. For that reason, we've compiled some of the best shots from The Launch 2017 at Snow Summit from our valued contributors. Thanks, guys, and we hope to see you next year!
