HUNTER, N.Y. (March 17, 2013) – The third annual Hunter Mountain x Flour City Hell Track event on March 16 had a treacherous course that was a hell of a lot of fun! All the locals, and the ThirtyTwo crew came out to party, ride the course and watch the event carnage on this sunny East Coast day.
Hell Tracks aren't for the faint of heart; Hunter Mountain's Hell Track took many riders down and even broke one shredder's board. The 55 snowboarders in the contest each took two runs and kept their best time. The 15 riders with the fastest times advanced to the final where they raced head-to-head.
