MFM and The BLOCK Announce Final List of Riders!

The Block

The Block has finalized it’s list of Riders for The Block Party 2006. The riders were selected by MFM and The Block hotels and reduced to 30 after over 100 snowboarders applied. All riders will compete in a non-competitive jam format event at Sierra at Tahoe on December 9, 2006, as part of the annual Block Party 2006 hosted by The Block, Boost Mobile and Sierra at Tahoe. The rail jam is being co-sponsored by Monster Energy Drink.

The Block Party was created by Block Hotel founders MFM and Liko S. Smith in 2003 and has since become the premiere non-scheduled event of the snowboard industry. “Marc and I wanted to create an event that kicks off winter with a huge party, during a time that helps the community, and includes most of our friends, which happen to be a lot of professional snowboarders…who knew?” says Liko S. Smith, Managing Owner of The Block Hotels. “Our partners in Lake Tahoe have really stepped up to the plate to make this year’s event another record breaker; just like the previous two.”
