Here’ Drew’s report:

APPALACHIAN SKI MOUNTAIN – FEBRUARY 4, 2007 – Winter is finally here in full force, and our third event of the "Shred for the Cup" series was a huge success with a turnout of around 100 competitors. The park crew was super busy at work the past few days getting the course setup ready, as we had to change the location of the event from Appaljack to Appal Jam due to the weather and other factors. The setup consisted of your choice of a Flat Box, Flat Handrail, Stairset, or Double Kink rail, into the tabletop which had a large and small takeoff, into a C-Box, into a Flat Box, into the DVS picnic table. So riders were judged on runs consisting of a line of 5 features, more than ever before. Registration went down in the Lodge until 10, and everyone made their way to the park to get some warm up runs in shortly after. Around 11, we kicked the competition off starting with Mens Beginner Snowboard, followed by Mens Beginner and Intermediate Ski, followed by Womens Ski and Snowboard, into Mens Intermediate Snowboard. It was amazing to see some of the talent in all divisions, everyone was on their game, just feeling the vibe, having fun and dialing their runs in. Each rider had 2 runs through the course, with their best run counting as their final score, so Competitors were going all out on both runs, putting together some amazing combinations. Men’s Advanced Ski and Snowboard were the last two divisions to ride, so there was a 15 minute warm up session for Competitors to get their legs under them before their 2 judged runs. David Schoepfle from Beech Mtn. ended up taking 1st for the Snowboarders with spins on and off almost every box, and stomped spins on the big booter. Charlie "The Machine" Wilcox took 1st for the Advanced Skiers with tech spins/switch ups on all the boxes, and a switch rodeo 5…you know, the usual. The competition wrapped up around 3:00, and all the riders came in to warm up, grab some food with their lunch vouchers, and made way to the Snowcloud Room for the Awards Ceremony. The top 3 winners in all divisions got hooked up with tons of great prizes from all of our sponsors, and everyone who competed in the slopestyle recieved a prize after! Congratulations to Matt Wimberley, who was the winner of 2 5 Day Lift Passes at Vail Resorts. A big thanks goes out to all of our sponsors who helped put this event on, BoardParadise, Red Bull, Salomon, Burton, Vail, Skullcandy, DVS, Matix, Spy, Dakine, High Society, and Atomic. Also, don’t forget about our next event, the Forum Youngblood coming up Feb 24…we have some big plans in the works already for it.
