When inclemency and bleak precipitation come blustering through on the contest day, however, it’s a toss up, anything could happen. We all love when there’s a rift in normality--especially in snowboarding contests, whose podiums are accustomed to being topped by the same riders. This summer at Australian resort Perisher The Mile High transpired amidst bleak and blustering conditions, and a triumvirate of rookies--Tyler NicholsonSven Thorgren, and Darcy Sharpe--added new trophies to their collections, which we assume will grow into impressive metallic troves in the next few years.
