After last weekend’s festivities, we realized that a contest is a contest, no matter what bow you wrap it in. But Pat Moore’s Back to the Boneyard event seems a whole lot more like an anti contest to us! Plus we think its neat when the kids are reminded snowboarding has history. Here’s the full release.
Pat Moore and Waterville Valley Present…..
BACK TO THE BONEYARD
Waterville Valley, NH, March 9, 2009- Waterville Valley is known in the east coast snowboarding world as one of the leaders in terrain park progression. This dates back to the early 1990’s when the Boneyard was the premiere terrain park around. The double barrel rail, bus top, Quonset hut, hip and infamous jump line were ahead of their time. Riders like Pat Moore, Chas Guldemond, Danny Garrity and Scotty Lago honed their skills in the Boneyard, ultimately making them some of the best riders in the world.
Pat Moore and Waterville Valley will host the first ever Back to the Boneyard that will take place on Tuesday March 24, 2009. Back to the Boneyard will be held not just for competition sake, but also to raise dollars for kids in the Waterville Academy Snowboard program. The day boasts to be a creative and fun contest but also a reunion of sorts to relive Waterville’s storied past.
Back to the Boneyard will feature a resurrection of some of the Boneyard’s most infamous elements. Teams of three riders will have to accomplish trickery from a predetermined checklist on each of the three features. We invite all east coast snowboarders young and old to come check out the action.
