Weeks before Superpark starts crews of talented cat drivers and diggers descend to put rake to snow in order to manifest behemoth features. Round the clock, like gruff, five o’clock shadowed elves, Seven Springs, Boreal, Bear Mountain and Mammoth Unbound have been pushing and pushing in preparation for Superpark 20, the two-decade anniversary of this springtime conviviality of many of snowboarding’s best. Today, the features will be unleashed as SP20’s attendees drop in and launch off and over, but before that happens, here is a sneak peek of the men who have brought Superpark 20 at Mammoth Mountain presented by Nexen Tire USA in association with Oakley, to life.
