In an unfortunate accident during snowboard slopestyle practice in Sochi, Russia for the Winter Olympic Games, Torstein Horgmo (NOR) broke his collarbone and will be unable to compete.

According to ESPN, “The 26-year-old Horgmo landed heavily on his face and right shoulder while attempting a difficult trick on a rail near the top of the course and was taken to the athletes’ hospital at Krasnaya Polyana, said team manager Thomas Harstad.”

We here at the Snowboard Mag offices are hoping for a speedy recovery because watching Torstein shred is a true pleasure.

Get well soon!

Liftopia’s Super Bowl Lift Ticket Deals: Skip the game, get pow slashes instead

Huge deals for those who are skipping the Super Bowl in favor of pow slashes:

SAN FRANCISCO – (Jan. 28, 2014) – With more than 164 million people expected to watch the big game on Sunday, Feb. 2, it’s the perfect time to hit the slopes and score some of the best deals of the year on lift tickets. Liftopia, the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and other mountain activities, today launched its annual Game Day Sale, with prices starting at $19.99 – as much as 56 percent off walk-up window rates – at more than 250 resorts across North America.

“Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year to get out on the hill. You’ll find wide-open trails, no lift lines, and great bars and restaurants to view the game when it starts at 6:30 p.m. EST. You might as well burn some calories on the hill before you dive into those wings,” said Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of Liftopia. “Since this Sunday is traditionally a low-demand day for resorts, our partners offer some of their best weekend deals of the year for our Game Day Sale. The average booked savings on Liftopia for Super Bowl Sunday last year was 33 percent – representing the best value of any Sunday during the regular ski season.”
