First place for women and $1000 was awarded to Courtney Cox for an unmatched arsenal of tricks on all the rail jam features throughout the 30-minute finals.

Thousands of spectators swarmed the event set up at 1200 Lincoln St. in downtown Denver to celebrate the beginning of winter and support snowboarders who traveled from throughout the US and the mountains of Colorado to compete.

The air was chilly and the sun was shining while Cole Linzmeyer grabbed the judges attention, earning 2nd place followed by Cody Boan, who according to Judge Ryan Thompson had the “best looking frontside lipslide and gap to down on the kink rail,” placing third overall.

The women’s competition was stacked with highlights including a Frontside 360 over the “Scion Deathgap” feature and tech tricks on the rails. Lynn Neil grabbed second place and crowd favorite Izzy Lalive came in third.

Admissions representatives from the Art Institute of Colorado supplied prospective students with information about their programs throughout the day.  The smell of local food venders wafted throughout the crowd while spectators checked out the sponsor village and won prizes or waited to have Salomon Pro’s Louif Paradis, Scotty Arnold and Chris Grenier sign autographs and give out stickers and posters.

Event sponsors include The Art Institute of Colorado, Salomon Snowboards, Bonfire Snowboarding Company, Scion, Skull Candy, Snowboard Colorado Magazine, Red Bull, Westward, Inkmonster and Celtek.
