Mammoth Mountain, CA – Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark is one of the largest snowboarding events of the year, and Superpark 14 presented by Gatorade returns to the Eastern Sierras May 4-7 this year with the riders and builders ready to take the event to new heights.
“Mammoth is a natural fit to host Superpark in the late spring,” says Chris Engelsman, publisher of Snowboarder Magazine. “Their snowpack is optimum, the weather is fantastic, and their support of park riding is undeniable. We’ve spent six Superparks in Mammoth and couldn’t be more excited to go back and try to top what we saw there last year.”
“Superpark is a great event that focuses on having fun and the athletes’ progression,” said Kenny Mitchell, action sports team manager for event sponsor Gatorade. “Gatorade is happy to be on board with such a great event where we can help fuel riders as they push one another to ride hard in a laid back setting.”
For 2010 the event has adopted an “Animal House” theme, dubbing it “Animal Park.” According to Snowboarder’s editor Pat Bridges, “The poster for Animal House says it all: ‘It was the Deltas against the rules… the rules lost.’ Snowboarding was founded by a bunch of dudes who went against the rules and, well…you know the rest. Similarly, Snowboarder started Superpark to create a venue where we didn’t need to follow any rules.”
Expect 150 of the world’s best park riders to send it for four days straight as they pledge Tri Landa Air.
