The 4th annual Love Games, hosted by Satellite Boardshop, went down Sunday March 30th in Colorado. If you haven’t heard of the Love Games, well now you have and be sure to mark your calendar for next year.
The love games is and underground event held on Loveland Pass every year to celebrate snowboarding and its roots. There’s nothing built to perfection here as everything is hand dug the day before, and its highly recommend you show up with a shovel.
Three zones make up the event with a bowl shaped quarterpipe, the famous “Divingboard” Hip. And this year The Nightmare Crew built some insane Log features making it a perfect day to give back to the community, have a few beers, eat a few dawgs and look back at how far snowboarding has come.
With Analog giving away a trip to shred with Dave Downing, Vans giving away cash for the best method, Redbull with some energy drinks and The North Face with the Legend award to the above 30 crew, this event reminds all of us why we snowboard every day and spend our whole lives shredding those sick lines.
