The TransWorld SNOWboardinfg TransAM has been kicking off in Waterville valley since the beginning and what Luke Matheson and the Waterville park crew brought to the table is a reminder of why.  As usual for January, Mother Nature wrangled in those frigid New Hampshire temps but the riders came out on top bringing the heat all day.

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 Nora Healey & Brendan Hart 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 went to Jed Sky for nailing a gap to back 270 on the Anon feature.

Special thanks to the Waterville Valley Resort and the TransAm sponsors for making stop 1 of the TransAM a huge success:  Ride Snowboards, Zumiez, Anon Optics, Analog, High Cascade Snowboard Camp, and Giro.  See you at stop two in Big Boulder!
