The TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM touched down at Brighton Resort in Utah for stop 6 of the 2015 tour. An 80 plus strong field ripped up an awesome course built and designed by Mouse and the Brighton Resort park crew, complete with 11 inches of fresh powder as the icing on the cake. Check out the video and photos to see how creative lines and soft snow led to a fun filled TransAM shred day in the Wasatch Mountains!
Congratulations to the top three guys and gals who qualified for the Transworld SNOWboarding TransAM Finals at Bear Mountain, CA on March 14, 2015. 1st placers Kelly Underwood & Andy Chamarro walked away with flight vouchers to Finals courtesy of Zumiez, VIP treatment for the finals weekend on behalf of Transworld SNOWboarding, and snowboards from RIDE. There was also the coveted TransAm trophy in the form of a custom engraved acoustic guitar!
All winners were loaded up with tons of awesome product including custom High Cascade backpacks, Anon goggles, Analog outerwear, Giro helmets, and Zumiez gift cards.
$500 cold hard Zumiez cash for the Zumiez Best Trick Award also went to Kyle Nienhouse for his nosepress all the way thru the HCSC rail.
Special thanks to Brighton Resort and the TransAM sponsors for another great 2015 TransAM event: RIDE Snowboards, Zumiez, Anon Optics, Analog, High Cascade Snowboard Camp, and Giro.

*We’re not sure what Mother Nature was thinking but she decided to throw a wrench into the original 2015 TransAM tour schedule. Unfortunately, the originally scheduled Mt Seymour, BC, CANADA TransAM on February 28 has been cancelled due to less than ideal snow conditions in the region. We will be contacting all you individuals who preregistered for the Mt Seymour event to let you know what your options are for refunds, etc. Thanks for understanding. It's a total bummer but the show must go on…
We are excited to announce that the February 28 date is being replaced with a brand new stop — Big Sky, Montana. Please go to www.twsnow.com/transam for registration and all the event details.
