Lib-Tech and Gnu Snowboards bring you Boxes for Days* – a ridiculously fun event involving a lot of boxes! – The Tour

Mervin Mfg has teamed up with longtime cohorts Snowboy Productions to bring Boxes for Days to the masses…with stops at The Summit at Snoqualmie, Boreal Mountain Resort, Waterville Valley and a super-misty stop somewhere in Japan!

The simple concept is to take normal park boxes and arrange them one after another to create an abnormal, tremendously difficult, yet ridiculously fun to ride Super-Box.

“It’s kinda like Voltron” says event creator Krush Kulesza “except there aren’t any robots.”

The tour teams up with some highly respected resorts in it’s first year with the park crews at each resort looking to raise the bar at each stop.

“It’s never the same event twice…it’s gonna be bananas!” says Mervin’s Pete Saari.

Speaking of bananas…each stop will award one deserving shred the official Slippery Banana award for box riding prowess along with a ton of great prizes given out in RANDOM DISPLAYS OF RADNESS from our great sponsors, including Lib Tech, Gnu, Snowboarder Magazine, Think Thank and COAL.

This event is BEYOND FREE. Meaning that in addition to no entry fee, every entrant will receive a free year’s subscription to Snowboarder Magazine and the first 50 will receive a free event T-shirt…you are almost being paid to go to this event!

Boxes For Days* – A ridiculously fun event involving a lot of boxes! – The Tour is made possible by Lib Technologies, Gnu Snowboards, Think Thank, Snowboarder Magazine, COAL , Snowboard Connection, Porter's Tahoe and Eastern Boarder.

Summit at Snoqualmie – Jan 15 / Boreal Mountain Resort – Jan 22 / Super-misty Japan Stop – Feb 5 / Waterville Valley – Apr 2
