Plenty of powder at ThirtyTwo Day

One of the bigger storms of the year hammered Brighton Resort right before the fourth annual ThirtyTwo Day yesterday.  Brighton typically gets 500 inches of snow each season, and the latest storm dropped about 32 inches just in time for ThirtyTwo Day’s Helltrack Banked Slalom and Rail Jam contests.

The ThirtyTwo Day event combines the rider’s results in both the Helltrack Banked Slalom and Rail Jam contests for overall winners.  Each of the winners took home a golden ThirtyTwo boot trophy, $320 in cash, a new ThirtyTwo snowboard, boots and shoes.

Dave King won the men’s division with Everest Arnold and Sam Blazejewski taking second and third places.

 

In the women’s division Alexa McArty took the title with Samantha Kolesky landing in second and Laura Rogoski in third.

Located in the Brighton park, the Helltrack Banked Slalom event kicked the day off with snowboarders of all ages and ability levels ranging from casual weekend warriors to seasoned pros flying through the berms and turns.

Kids love rail jams, and the level of progression by the riders on the Brighton rails yesterday made it a contest to remember!  Everest Arnold slayed the rail contest with so many solid tricks!  One of the highlights from Everest’s run was a gap 450 to boardslide on the down rail.  Alexa McArty locked in a gap to front board on the close out and a backlip on the down rail to win the women’s division.

Dave King earning his spot on top the podium.
