Mt. Bachelor hosted the 8th stop of the 12th Annual Transworld SNOWboarding TransAM this past weekend. Parker Bohon and the Mt. Bachelor park crew set up a picture perfect park which included a High Cascade Snowboard Camp Marshmallow snow wall feature, a Ride Snowboard giant wall ride, a Muscle Milk feature with a newly added chain attachment, an Anon Optics off centered double rail set up, a Analog Outerwear stair to down rail feature, a Zumiez couch gap to flat to down rail and a Giro jersey barrier to rail combo. A pristine park line up that stayed ripp-able on a snowy day at Mt. Bachelor. High Cascade’s Carson Shubert was once again calling out tricks on the mic as the top amateur snowboarders from the area came out to Mt. Bachelor firing rodeos, backside rodeos, back flips, front flips, and some stylish methods. At the end of the day the top guys and girls qualified for the Transworld TransAM finals at Big Bear, CA. on March 15.
