Day one is a wrap...and what a good one! Partly cloudy skies led to some great compositions in the photo and film world with a crew of radical riders pulling stunts on a slope filled with berms, banks, table tops, hips, a half pipe and a twenty-two foot bowl. The 2014 edition of Peace Park took a serious evolutionary step in the direction of using an entire mountain slope, not just a section of it, translating into full park runs and plenty of obstacles to choose from.
Starting the day with a quick event briefing from the hosts, we headed up the chairlift, grabbed the snowcat and sleds for the rest of the journey upward and began dissceting all the possibilities Snow Park Technologies created with Burton Snowboards and Mountain Dew. Top to bottom laps were in order for all involved to kick things off, which led to sorting out a few different sessions in the bowl and frontside hip, while rounding out the day in the halfpipe. As the sun was setting, we wrapped it up, high-fived and made our way down, excited for day number two just an evening away. Blotto
