Over the last two decades, Superpark has cemented itself in the snowboarding subculture as the premier platform of progression in freestyle. The event has ushered in names like Travis Rice and features like channeled out stepover-style jumps and C-boxes and the result in those evolutions have helped launch careers and educate builders across North America in order to enhance the everyday rider’s on-hill experience. Now, in its 21st year, Superpark is bigger, badder and better than ever before.
The Boreal Tree Island started to go off and it was one of the most memorable sessions I can remember on any day one of Superpark. Halldór Helgason kicked it off with some upside down 360 methods that were as inexplicable as they were unexplainable. Following in Halldór’s footsteps were Garrett Warnick, Ethan Morgan, Tyler Chorlton, Tyler Flanagan, Zak Hale, Judd Henkes, Yuki Kadono, Tomoki Wakits, Zach Normandin, Justin Phipps, Jaeger Bailey, Iikka Backstrom, DC Brand Manager Bobby Meeks and a handful of others. The day ended as the sun started to set and Day One came to a close, but worry not, because we will be up there all week long documenting what is sure to be one of the craziest weeks that terrain park snowboarding has ever seen.
