Watch: Nike Snake & Hammers Montafon 2014

The Nike Snake & Hammers Montafon went down at the end of March 2014 proving to be one of the most creative banked slalom courses we’ve ever seen. What do you think, would you slash this bad boy?

Via Nike Snowboarding on YouTube:

From 28-30 March 2014, Nike Snowboarding presented the second annual Snake & Hammers at Silvetta Montafon, Austria. On a creative course combining the banks and rollers of a traditional banked slalom with the features of a slopestyle course, riders had to balance speed as well as style. The goal was to race as fast as possible down the “snake” course, without leaving the style behind. Tricks on the slopestyle features, like a step-down kicker, big and small rollers, a cannon rail, stairset and several banked jumps brought points as well as time bonuses for the riders with the best “hammers.”

Current pros like Kevin Bäckström, Seppe Smits, and Spencer O’Brien, were joined by several snowboard legends including David Benedek, Iker Fernandez, Sani Alibabic and Nicola Thost. With a unique course and spectacular weather, this was an event not to be missed.
