This past weekend on March 14 the TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM wrapped up the winter tour with its final stop at Bear Mountain.  Your 2015 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Champions were crowned under blazing sun with heavy riding from all the competitors who showed up.  Once again, Clayton Shoemaker and the Bear Mountain park crew designed and built an insane course as the venue for the final stop of the TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM winter series.  Check out the full photo and video recap of the TransAM 2015 Finals!

Congratulations to the 2015 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Champions Elena Graglia for the women and Buzz Holbrook for the men!  Coming out on top when you are slated against 40 finalists plucked from the Bear TransAM prelims along with the 24 prequalified travelling finalists from stops 1 through 8 is a massive accomplishment.

Along with prestigious bragging rights, your 2015 TransAM Champs walked away with Zumiez gift cards, snowboards from RIDE, custom High Cascade backpacks, Anon goggles, Analog outerwear, Giro helmets, and the coveted TransAm trophy in the form of a custom engraved acoustic guitar!

All winners were loaded up with great prizes from all tour sponsors with $500 cold hard Zumiez cash going to Zach Monte and Veronika Periflyeva for the Zumiez Best Trick Awards.
