The ‘sandbox’ has been a location for creation since our earliest years, and the snowboard version this past saturday at Summit at Snoqualmie could be found in a shredder teen’s wet dream.
And wet it was, but mostly from the rain. The rules of the contest were lax; the direct result of none of us wanting to think very hard. We started the contest once some one did a backflip and we ended it once everybody stopped riding. We tossed out prizes for things that hyped everyone out, and we also awarded prizes for kids that landed a trick they had been trying for a while.
Perhaps my favorite part of the day was the chair of four skier kids yelling “nobody cares!” from the chairlift (every single time they rode up). At first I stared back speechless, but I grew to enjoy their exasperated screeching. It felt good that these skiers were hating on a Yobeat event at such a young age…we must have been doing something right.
Thank you to everybody who came out to ride, thank you Summit Park staff for the amazing set up and thank you Capita, Dragon, Coal, and Howl for hooking up the prizes.
