2013 Nike Snowboarding Snake and Hammers at Montafon, Austria

It was four unforgettable days from March 24-27, 2013 at Silvretta Montafon, Austria where 36 ams and 23 legends and pros competed in the third stop of Nike Snowboarding’s “Snake & Hammers.” The Montafon park crew stepped up to the challenge and concocted a course to challenge even the most seasoned pros. In addition to the turns and banks of a traditional banked slalom, the course also included a stairset, side-by-side kicker setup, half-bowl mega berm, a London gap through a snow tunnel to a straight rail, a halfpipe and a small hip. The aim of each rider was to snake down course as fast as possible while dropping their best “hammers“ along the way.
