Feels like this deserves its own thread.

Competition windows:

  • Jackson - Jan 24-31
  • Baldface - Feb 20-27
  • Tordrillo - Mar 20-27

They announced some new heavy hitters in the past week. Danny, Arthur, Torgeir, and Torstein-- all first-name identifiable riders (unless Danny Kass comes out of retirement lol). They also announced Jared Elston today, which I thought was an inspired, under-the-radar choice.

Would love to see Kazu, but I'm guessing he's not eligible to get into the States (def not Canada) after this whole shebang.

Also I heard through grapevine that Blauvelt and Moore aren't in this year. Allegedly they asked Blauvelt and he said no. And Moore decided he just didn't want to compete any more, even in an especially dope competition.

In addition to the competition, looks like they're going pretty big on a festival concurrent NST x Stay Wild Festival for the JHMR stop. The event list looks pretty cool. Especially stoked to see a screening of Dear Rider,-- I would LOVE to watch that movie again with a theater full of snowboarders. Looks like they also got the dope archival display Burton put up for the premiere in New York (saw glimpses of it on IG stories).

Even aside from my availability I wouldn't want to be at a music festival in Wyoming amid omicron... but I'm going to have to get out there one day.

Missed that announcement lol, but stoked to see him in it.  Him and Longo are my 2 favorite guys to watch right now.

Hyped for the Jackson Hole event. Hopefully the live stream goes well for us home viewers. 

 

I wonder if the second stop will follow the same format as last year or will they switch it up?
