Back in February a significant portion of Midwestern snowboarding’s royalty faced off in an event like no other. Under lights at the legendary Trollhaugen Resort, just 50 minutes north of the Twin Cities, the chosen displayed their shred superiority honed on the ropes of the Midwest in head-to-head battles of skill, style, and consistency. They were judged by their fellow riders in a contest format comprised of a line of features. Only one prevailed as “Lord of the Ropes” with a handsome purse of $2,000. Check out the highlights above for a live look at all the action.
