Friday Night Jib Fights Comes to Park City
Guest post by Kara Rennie
Last years Friday Night Live rail contest series raised some debate as to which resort in Utah has the best rail slayers in the state. Thus, the creation of the Friday Night Jib Fights. The series has expanded to nine events, three at each Park City, Brighton and Snowbasin. The finals will be held at Park City on March 30 with the podium riders from each stop invited for double the prize purse and an overall winner of the series.
The first stop went off at Snowbasin and will now be moving to 3 Kings Terrain Park at Park City for the second stop on January 6, 2012. This years set up will be designed and built by the PCMR Terrain Park staff to include two lines of 3 features each as well as a bottom feature to total 7 features.
I can't say how it was for the spectators at last years events, but as a competitor the vibe was much different from the day. Hiking the rails kept us warm and although I didn't know many people, It felt like I was hiking with my friends and we were all pushing eachother to try new tricks. The fact that it was at night made everyone stoked on something new. Announcers Pops and Tron bring some entertainment on the mic to contribute to the already amazing vibe. Last years night riding contest brought a number of skiers and snowboarders who threw down and raised the level of progression.
Cash and prizes will be distributed between the top 3 athletes from each category of AM or Open, girls and guys, skiers and snowboarders as well as a product toss for everybody. Registration starts at 4:00 pm at the bottom of 3 Kings, cost is $15 per event and the show starts off with AM riders at 5:30 followed by Open riders at 6:00 pm.

From family outings at the local slopes to Olympic gold in Sochi, Sage Kotsenburg has come a long way. Still, he never forgets why he got into it, the sheer fun of it all.
We pitted three world-class athletes together on one of the world's best alpine coasters to crown our 2014 King of the Coaster.

In the days leading up to their walk down the ESPYS Red Carpet, olympic gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christensen jetted around the country with the Woodward Team. The private jet stopped at Woodward Copper so the pros could shred the summer snow terrain park, then off to Woodward Tahoe to skateboard, bounce on tramps and high-five some campers along the way. The adventure ended in Los Angeles at the ESPYS where both athletes were nominated for Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete. At the end of the night, Sage took home the honors adding an ESPY to his trophy collection. Go to WoodwardTV.com for more!
Camp Woodward will welcome the first-ever Olympic gold medalists in men's slopestyle to the Woodward Copper camp in Colorado on July 14th and Woodward Tahoe on July 15th. The two Olympic slopestyle gold medal winners will lend their expertise this summer to campers this summer at Camp Woodward. Campers will get the opportunity to hang out, train and grab photos with both Joss and Sage. There is still time to sign up for the summer camps. If you can't make these dates and there are always pros dropping in.

After 4/20 we closed down the resort but immediately afterward the park crew pushed all of the Crown jumps into one huge jump for Sage and friends to session for his Holy Crail series. Heavy hitters like Bode Merrill, Zak Hale, Aaron Biittner, Nik Baden, Nick Julius, Michael Wick, and Griffin Siebert came to throw down. Vita Brevis Films and Pat Fenelon also brought some cameras up to get some of the sickest footage to date. From R3Ds to drones to local legends to Olympic gold medal athletes, we did it all. Here is a preview VBF put together from the craziness that went down after we were closed. Keep an eye out for Sage’s Full Part dropping on TWSNOW.com this Fall.

We had an incredible time with Lib Tech and all those that participated in The Holy Bowly this year. It was amazing to be part of and everyone involved absolutely loved it. It was a celebration of snowboard culture and lifestyle that we were happy to be a part of and we will never forget.
