Mammoth, Meribel, and now Whistler. There were no Ubers in sight, but plenty of cabs. The DC Hit and Run completed its final stop of the season two hours north of Vancouver during a blustery spring day at Whistler Blackcomb. With over 60 local riders coming out to test their times and tricks with the seasoned vets on the DC Snowboarding team, it was arguably the toughest course yet!
If you haven’t seen the DC Hit and Run course before, it combines the classic turns of a banked slalom with supremely shaped slopestyle features like jibs and jumps. Taking speed and trick selection into account, the riders score is tallied and then factored into their time. All things considered, it seems to be one of the most popular competitions currently in snowboarding.
Although there was plenty of ripping throughout the course, only a few can stand atop the podium at the finish line. This year Mikey Ciccarelli took the top spot, along with best trick (cab 9), for the Men’s Pro division. The rest of the results can be found in the full recap with photos here!
Huge shoutout to the Blackcomb staff for not only cashing in and creating huge banks, but for the pristine prep and maintenance work to keep the course firing! Thanks to everyone at DC Snowboarding and we can’t wait to see you all again next year!
