While we were sweating away in the Hurley Pro VIP tent at Trestles, the SoCal snowboard world was at Bear Mountain for the 6th Annual Hot Dawgs & Handrails event. Luckily for us, Snowboarder Mag had the whole thing covered.
On Saturday, September 19th, 2009, 50 pro riders and over 5,000 spectators descended on Big Bear to celebrate So Cal snowboarding at its finest albeit, out of season. The Bear park crew brought in 110 tons of ice to create the most ambitious HD&HR setup yet. Unlike similar events which incorporate a single feature, Bear built two separate lanes, each with multiple jib options, giving the riders the opportunity to dial their lines and link up tricks, making it more akin to a conventional slopestyle event than a simple rail jam.
We’re just bummed we couldn’t be in two places at once. Maybe we should invest in some unpaid interns. . .
