GALLERY: Behind the Scenes at The Am Throwdown

Last week’s Am Throwdown with Snowboard Mag was a huge success, and The House was lucky enough to be a part of all of the action.

The teams of finalists, who were chosen by public voting, had five days of sunshine and good snow to explore Copper and shoot a 1:30 second video. Edits had to be cut and turned in by midnight Friday night so the crews made the most of the days and nights trying to “Get the Shot”.

As Snowboard Magazine Editor Jon Glass put it, “We wanted the guys to get creative, explore the mountain and not feel confined to just one area of the mountain. The contest had a loose format. We pretty much let the guys run free for the week.”

Snowboard Magazine has a great recap of the event here. Stay tuned as the final edits should be dropping next week as well as the announcement of the winning team and video who will walk away with 5G’s.

  1. OK so unlike vryeeone else here I’m not going to try and force my opinions on you, even though I personally do like the baggy look, It’s up to you. I’m 6 2 and I wear an XL Special Blend jacket (which is made by the same company as FourSquare,) and i would go a little bigger if I could. I think a large would probably be perfect for you, unless you wanted a little bit of a tighter fit.
