Top men’s snowboarders and freeskiers, including reigning champs Louie Vito and Kevin Rolland, will throw down for the chance to gain points as they head into the final stop at Snowbasin in Ogden, Utah. Additionally, women’s freeskiing will debut at Killington’s Pantech Invitational.

Besides the action-packed competitions, the four-day event will also include a Friday night VIP party at the Wobbly Barn and will feature a live DJ set from RAC, the Portland-based cutting edge duo of Andre Allen Anjos and Karl Kling, spinning original remixes and party favorites.
