The So-Gnar Snowboard Camp tour hits at Loveland, CO for the first time

Well, the lucky year 7 of the So-Gnar Snowboard Camp Tour has arrived. We kicked off the very first camp stop at Loveland Ski Area in Colorado this past weekend with nothing but blue skies, soft snow and warm temps.

The conditions worked out really well for learning new tricks and having a ton of fun snowboarding together. We had a great turnout of campers and Shred Circuit competitors, who all enjoyed the custom built course by The Loveland Park Crew and So-Gnar.

After an exciting first So-Gnar Shred Circuit stop with the the folks from Woodward At Copper, we kept it on home turf in the Colorado Rocky Mountains at the Loveland Ski Area. With great weather, a fun set-up and quite a few super talented competitors, the 2nd Qualifying Stop of The So-Gnar Shred Circuit was a huge success. Great weather, fun course set-up, and lots of talented riders, this stop went off.

Derek Henderson took home the victory earning himself a spot at the tour finals courtesy of Zumiez, a longboard from Never Summer & A So-Gnar Package, followed by Cooper Scoar taking home the runner-up honors ($75 Zumiez Gift Card & UnEqual Protection & some new Zeal Optics Goggles) and Cody Potter rounding it off in 3rd taking home a ($50 Zumiez Gift Card & Coalatree package & UnEqual Protection).

We would like to thank all the campers, parents, coaches, park crew, Duncan @Loveland and the sponsors for the support. All photos have been captured by the talented and eclectic Chris Faronea.
