SNOWBOARDER Magazine is excited to bring The Launch 2018 to Woodward Copper, CO next week, running March 20th – March 23rd.

Since its debut in 2008 The Launch has become the preeminent springboard for the next generation of freestyle snowboarding Superstars. With its focus on riders under the age of 18, The Launch provides up-and-comers with an unparalleled platform to shine alongside their peers. From the onset The Launch has put an emphasis on freeform sessions and camaraderie to provide a counterpoint to competition in order to nurture creativity and lifelong friendships.

The same cutting edge and immaculate setups that Snowboarder has become known for with gatherings like Superpark are on tap at The Launch for our sports future to take their riding to the next level on their own terms. In turn, the feats we capture on film over the four day long shoot will be broadcast globally in our digital, social, and upcoming print channels. Check out one of the recaps from last year’s event, and get ready for more dropping soon!
