One of the only reasons why I still live in New England is the winters. As most people despise them and hibernate for the winter, to myself and others it turns into one big playground. I will say for the record, I am not a professional snowboarder, I do however love to get with some friends and charge the mountain every now and again with the headphones blaring.
Anyways, the boys over at Burton and Red Bull have put together a series of competitions called the Main Event. This was their first stop this past weekend and it’s fair to say, even with the visibility not so perfect, the conditions were amazing. I will throw and update on this series as I learn about it, cause I am a fan of some friendly competition. You can check out the full write-up and images at TRANSWORLD
