Aspen Snowmass + Smith Optics Grudge Match – Results and Photos

The Smith Optics Grudge Match returned to Buttermilk Mountain on closing day for an afternoon of rail jam under the sun.

Each competitor spun the “trick wheel” to determine what maneuvers they would have to complete in front of a panel of celebrity shred judges. Competitors were narrowed down to the top eight riders for the final rail jam.

Telluride native Lucas Foster took home the win, which included a $1000 cash prize and a pair of Smith Optics I/O goggles. In second place was Aspen local Scott “the boss” Kloss. Third place went home with Logan Lauffer, another Aspen local. The Best Trick award went to Mark Pinter, who threw a one footed board slide.

Check out a nice round-up of images from the fun day at Buttermilk.

Suns out, guns out… He almost got the grab.
Lot of one foot tricks went down.
A prim and proper method for the crowd.
All the Aspen homies and locals alike were out and about, cheering on the competitors.
Winners circle: Lucas Foster with the win, Scott Kloss in 2nd and Logan Lauffer in 3rd. Best Trick to Mark Pinter. YOLO.
