The Launch Photo Recap | Snowboarder Mag

The Launch

Snowboarder Magazine’s The Launch event was a breath of fresh air.  For riders earning their stripes the season tends to be congested with contests, organizing bodies, and rules.  While checking in on arrival day the invited congregation let out a harmonious sigh of relief;  the spirit of snowboarding, of freedom and creativity, was sweeping over us, engulfing our souls, and washing our sins.

The stage was set at Snow Summit for four days of ideal southern California ripping.  “Sunny n’ Sick” was easily heard throughout The Launch.  Why wouldn’t it be?  Every day on snow was perfect – the warming sun rays, a gentle breeze, and a light crispness of air that can only be provided by dense pines made The Launch heaven on earth.
