Back by popular demand, Red Bulls "Street Cred" event will go down as a staple in the east coast contest circuit. With no contest entry fee and a $2,000 cash purse it brought all the east coast heavy hitters such as Dylan Dragotta, Mike Ravelson, Parker Szumowski, and Dakota Whitaker just to name a few. As anticipated, the Loon park staff teamed up with Red Bull to create nearly twenty new features exclusively for the event. Loon Mtn "Little Sister" trail transforms into a snowboarders paradise – a full urban landscape of rails, concrete ledges, double slides and yes, even a fried dough cart. $1,500 was given away during the event by the judges in a tricks-for-cash format, they see something they like you get some cash. With DJ Scrumptious (Avert Gurldermond) spinning tracks and warm spring weather, Street Cred is a great way to wrap up your season!
