Hella Big Air at Mt. Bachelor Official Recap

2016 10 Barrel Brewing Company Hella Big Air Competition - Mt. Bachelor, Oregon

Hella. 

Hella Big Air went off in true 90’s fashion last week at Mt. Bachelor, Oregon. Around 30 riders vied for first prize sending it deep over the 90ft jump. Due to the abundant amounts of snow Bachelor has been getting pounded with this season, the event was pushed back a day due to high winds and snowfall stacking up even faster then the beer being poured back in Bend Sunday night. But man come Monday did it turn out nice, the sun was shining and the breeze was nonexistent for the event giving everyone a taste of just how great ol’ Bachy can be on a bluebird day after a storm.

Twerking it. 

Qualifiers opened up with players making some big moves, and a few taking gnarly slams. Meanwhile the ever thirsty Bend locals in the crowd proved they are second to none when it’s time to party and ran the beer garden out of beer while hooting and hollering for their favorite riders. The talent level among the competitors was impressive and while everyone threw down hard, nine riders showed they knew how to maneuver a man sized step-up and moved onto finals. Ryan Linnert came in hard for 3rd place with big 1080 dubs. Grabbing 2nd was JD Dennis who brought consistently clean landings along with a big laid out double backflip and a couple 1080’s. In the end Nils Mindnich put on the best show with huge 9’s both regular and switch as well as a big ass 1260, while riding his powder board none the less, which earned him the 10k grand prize.

Eh, how about that view?

A well built jump, frothing riders, good beer, and a cheering crowd are all sure signs of an epic day on hill. If you missed out this year make sure to tune in and see what goes down in 2017, we all have a feeling whatever happens, it’s going to be Hella Big.

Thanks to Mt. Bachelor for hosting, the parks crew for the amazing jump, all the homies at 10 Barrel for putting the event together, the riders, and everyone who came out to support this event!

  3. a lot of people want to hate on ten barrel for selling out to anheser-bush, but i mean look at this: they just dumped $30K+ into this event. they’re directly supporting the snowboard community so I’m definitely down
