This season’sTriple Air will consist of two enormous table hits, each approximately40 to 50 feet long, and two giant wave hits of which competitors willpick one. “I designed it this way to accommodate for both regular andgoofy riding styles,” says Keith Pfahler, Mountain High’s terrainbuilder.
Pfahler has been designing terrain parks for over eight yearsand most recently built the Swatch World BoarderCross at Mountain Highand the Gravity Games in Mammoth. “This is going to be a pretty coreevent,” says Keith. “It gets back to the roots of snowboarding and willput the fun back in competition.”
In Triple Air competition, riders are judged on amplitude, style,difficulty and landing. Professionals will be fighting for cash awardstotaling $5,000 while amateurs will compete for prizes equaling the sameamount from companies such as M3 Snowboards, GT Bicycles, 686Enterprises Clothing, Mongoose All Terrain Boards and much more.
