Nike Chosen At Mountain High
Lights, camera, smoke, ACTION! The NIKE Chosen event exploded Friday night at Mountain High in a sea of sound, strobes, and solid snowboarding. With GT of Von Zipper and Nike rider, Mason Aguirre on the mic, DJ YNot laying down the beats, top riders and NIKE Pros descended on the Playground jib park in this one-of-a-kind nighttime rail jam. The course consisted of a signature rainbow box painted by madsteez.com <http://madsteez.com> , a stair set, a concrete ledge, and three quarterpipes connected by two corrugated tubes. Riders like Ian Sams, Yeager Bailey and Danika Duffy destroyed the down rails while Kyle Lopiccolo, Spencer Link, Cory Cronk and Erik Leon were boosting out of the quarterpipe. It was Mountain High's own Ryan Paul who took first and best trick with his backside 360 50/50 on the stair set. Ian Sams took second place with his proper tricks on every feature while Yeager Bailey managed third with his style and flip tricks. Melissa Evans from Big Bear won the Women's division with her relentless domination of the stair set and quarterpipe.
