RHYTHM was the proud presenter of this years "Black Bear Open" in Björkliden (Sweden). A slopestyle competition in a natural environment located in the arctic circle in the middle of nowhere.

Inspired by the comic books of the Phantom and his jungle friends, swedens renowned snowboard crew the "Gälka Warriors" shoveled and shaped inventive obstacles such as a "liana" a "cave" etc. in the back country area called "Black Bear".

Friday's side event "Spray and Play" was a great opener for a weekend with good riding and almost perfect weather conditions. In an open session "no strings attached", riders showed their skills and enjoyed the mind-blowing countryside of the arctic circle.

Thanks to everyone who attended, rode, supported, drank and partied with us.
