The 9th stop of the 12th annual Transworld SNOWboarding TransAM landed in Stevens Pass, WA this past weekend to find a few more qualifiers for the TransAM finals in Cali next weekend. Early week rain was making it tough for Brian Boyle and the Stevens Pass park crew to perfect the TransAM course for Washington’s top amateur snowboarders. A late week magical break in the weather is all the crew needed for the finishing touches and they got it. The Stevens Pass magicians waved their wands as soon as the rain stopped and, voila’, a perfectly sculpted TransAM park with strategically placed features from the TransAM Sponsors: Ride Snowboards, Muscle Milk, Zumiez, Giro, Anon, Analog and High Cascade Snowboard Camp. The snow & rain stayed away on event day allowing the Washingtonians to show off some of the most technical TransAM wizardry on a snowboard yet this season!
Congratulations to the top three Guys and Gals that qualified for the Transworld SNOWboarding TransAM Finals at Big Bear Mountain, CA on March 15, 2014 (Next Weekend)!
