I-Pod’s Sunday Night Slam

by The Editors on January 29, 2018

There are times that it becomes obvious that the bar in halfpipe snowboarding has been raised way, way, too high. Last night during a contest in Aspen, Iouri Podladtchikov, showed us just what can happen when a small mistake is made while competing at this level. He was down for 20 minutes and (after a complete check up at hospital) reportedly broke only his nose. We’re sincerely hoping that is all and that he has a quick, complete recovery. But it begs the same old question: how many more traumatic brain injuries have to go down before we all decide that enough is enough on the whole bigger, faster, higher progression in the snowboard halfpipe?
