The Fathom Rail Snow saw a solid turn out and a beautiful, if somewhat cold day. The complete opposite of the windy and snowy conditions at Horseshoe the day before. The competition format was a new one that ended up evolving into a morning Rail Jam on the upper two features, finishing with a Big Air on the bottom jumps. Michael Rotsaert, Mikey Ciccarelli, Tyler Nicholson,Tim Crighton, Jono Skelton, Coulton Conway and Samm Denena all laid down a barrage of tech tricks but it was Keith Brouillette’s 180 press, change up press spin out that took the top spot in the Jam. Little Riley Dillon and Becca Ballantyne took to the rail section and pushed themselves on the set-up, with Riley attempting some extremely difficult switch 50-50 gap switch boardslides!
Simple Snowboarding team members out-rode the rest of the field at the Horseshoe AOS TTR 1 Star Halfpipe event this last weekend. Keith Brouillette and Samm Denena walked away with the open Mens, Womens and Overall titles on a windy poor-weather day at Horseshoe. The entire field rode well despite the testing conditions and everyone had a great day riding and competing. Michael Rotsaert ended up in 3rd place while the13-15 Podium was a clean sweep for Simple With Mikey Ciccarelli, Tyler Nicholson and Coulton Conway rounding out the field…
