As usual the Bear Mtn Park Staff executed the vision perfectly. The course, according to Chris Bradshaw, was “gnollie. As you might imagine we had ollie after nollie lined up for a day of sunny skate-inspired shredding. Some competitors took the picnic table to quarter pipe basket ball jib while many others were fond of the park bench to road barrier. My personal favorite was the tennis net to tulip jib and then over the swing set.
The multiple course options made the event exciting, entertaining and good times were had by all. This event is not your usual rail jam format and even the judges took a fresh approach to picking the individual winners.
Look for Picnic In The Park bigger and better next season as 686 and the Collective Empire bring true freestyle snowboarding back to where it belongs. Check 686.com for information on a picnic coming to your neighborhood.
Special thanks to Nam, Clayton and the Bear Park Crew for making it all happen!
