Day one of the highly anticipated Launch at Bear Mountain went off with weather more suited for the beach, giving off vacation style vibes. Not exactly optimal snowboarding conditions, but no one was complaining and everyone was having fun. Here’s an excerpt and a shot of Red from Snowboarder Mag‘s site – hopefully more to follow!
Other standouts included Blake Paul, who was putting down crazy backside three seatbelts and sending the big quarterpipe, San Taxwood and Max Warbington, who planted their palms on the up/down rail set against the quarterpipe. Zander Blackmon’s 270 to methods, Jaeger Bailey’s back rodeos, Red Gerard’s skate-inspired redirects, and of course Hans Mindnich’s alley oops were some of the best tricks during the afternoon session on the jump to quarter wall.
