"Riders in the storm“

The night before the event, mother nature granted us with 40-50 cm of fresh powder!
While early riders were warming up with powder runs, the shapers from White Elements Snowpark did an amazing job reshaping the whole set-up with the help of the "Pisten Billy“.
In addition to the traditional the long down and kink rails, riders could get creative on a special feature: a pole jam followed by a down ledge!
As usual the Volcom staff was serving free drinks and food, peanut butter and jam of course, but also sausages, snacks and sweet treats. Most welcome among spectators were hot beverages and Volcom hand warmers.
Despite the stormy weather, riders were so hyped to ride (probably helped by the playlist) that even the sun showed up to see what was up! This boosted the motivation of the riders, therefore the level of riding and we could determine the top 5 riders in each division (Results below) to be qualified for the PBRJ European Championships in Avoriaz on the 31st march 2012.
In the end, powder was shredded, rails were „shattered“, new tricks were landed, every rider went home with some Volcom products and most of all we had great times to remember until next year !
Thanks to the staff, White Elements snowpark, Nitro and Electric for the extra prizes!
