The third installment of VBS.TV’s in depth Powder & Rails webisodes focussed on the rebirth of the Nixon Jib Fest is live and direct for your peeping. Peep.
In the final episode, you get introduced to the “wheels of death”, a game that consists of JibFest invitees spinning two wheels. One of the wheels has tricks labeled on it. The other one determines what obstacle the trick must be done on. The wheels can come up with some terrifying combinations, but it sometimes also serves as motivation by throwing a bunch of hundred dollar bills into the mix for people who land the tricks.
Further along in the episode, Snow Park Technologies’ Chris “Gunny” Gunnarson and his crew walk us through the history of many features they created that are now considered stock at most snowboard parks. And as we learn, having input from riders like JP Walker, Jeremy Jones, and Dave Downing probably didn’t hurt in the creation process. Near the end of the show watch as we see how the JibFest voting process goes down for “Best Trick” and first, second and third place.
