With little to no relevance to our precious European snowboard scene, this event looks so much fun, we just had to post these videos!
The world’s longest running summer snowboard and skateboard event, the Bonfire Pipe to Pipe.
The event is free and open to the public, with purchase of a lift ticket for the snow event.
The gathering begins on the Palmer snowfield with a jam style snowboard competition in the NEW exclusive feature double mini-pipe with a spine in the middle Windells Camp will build for the event, complete with free BBQ, free prizes and a chance to ride with the best up and coming riders in the world. Pros compete for cash, Ams for prizes.
Past participants include Jed Anderson, Nick Dirks, Scott Stevens, Ted Borland, Chad Otterstrom, Leanne Pelosi, Desiree Melancon, Chris Grenier, Zac Marben, Hana Beaman, Scotty Arnold, Austin Hironaka and many more.
When the chairlift shuts down, the festivities move to Windells world-class skate facilities in Welches, Oregon. Skaters from throughout the Pacific Northwest will gather in the early evening to skate the cement park at Windells with a fervor and intensity that surpasses anything of its kind.
