Last weekend was the annual Big Air Fiesta at Stevens Pass. While we billed the event as a Big Hair/Big Air event, the hats and helmets made it hard to see the real extent of the hair. Skiers and snowboarders competed at the same time hucking themselves trying for the “biggest air” at this fiesta. The Top Phlight Terrain Park crew set up a nice, big kicker heading down into the base area. Some of the best views were had from the Deck of the Bull’s Tooth restaurant with beverage in-hand or from the deck of the jump itself. Hiking up to the top of the run-in and looking down gave you a good sense of how fast you needed to go and how big the jump was.
Bryce test the 2012 K2 Pon2oons:
Not only is Bryce Phillips the founder of evo, he is also a K2 Sponsored athlete (if you are not convinced, make sure you watch the video below). Bryce skis a lot of powder and his favorite ski for years has been the K2 Pontoon, so needless to say when he found out they were redesigning the ski for 2012 he needed to try out a pair. And by “try out” we mean rip apart Crystal Mountain in the span of a few days.

Mega Prize Raffle!
All proceeds are going to the Snowboard Outreach Society.
evo Team Rider Randa Shahin not only does contests in the United States but she travels internationally as well. Well…Vancouver Canada…but you still have to cross a border. Randa made the trek up to the Great White North to Mt. Seymour for Billabong’s Flaunt It and placed 5th. Pretty awesome if you ask us! Check out the article on Transworld Snowboarding for details and more photos.
For the fourth year Rome SDS brings you the end of season stoke you crave. Stoken is the un-contests of all contests. It’s a time to celebrate the shred season as it winds down and warms up, in a huge crew moving from feature to feature just having a good time.
The Stoken may include: all, some, or none of the following good times:
- Reverse Limbo Ollie Bar – mad ups bro
- One Hitters – could be a hip, quarter pipe, pipe, or on the chairlift
- The Long Slash – spray and pray
- Barrel Bonks – little tap, tap, taparoo
- Mystery Flavor – could be anything…
We’ll all be traveling as a pack from feature to feature, sessioning each jib or event in a super loose good-times jam format. And while the Stoken isn’t about winning, we still want to hook up a few people displaying the largest stoke quantity with a few extra items.
- First in Stoke – 2012 Mob Bindings
- Second in Stoke – 2012 Rome Jacket
- Third in Stoke – 2012 Rome Backpack
At the end of it all we’ll wrap it all up with a good ol’ product toss and possibly some hot dogs down in the parking lot.
