Mervin Mfg’s Boxes for Days Tour made it’s second stop this past weekend on the sunny slopes of Boreal. Eighty plus Tahoe area shreds took on the ridiculous 240′ up/down/up/flat/down/flat/down/flat/mini-rainbow/down/curve/flat/curve/flat box…also know as the (Lane) Knaack Attack.

Jesse Burtner, Jason Robinson, Maribeth Kramer and Nick Visconti were on-hand to keep everyone stoked and pass out a grip of quality goods from Lib Tech, Gnu, Coal, Snowboarder Mag and Porter’s Tahoe.
