Boards Clash With Steel At The Vail Session


The Honda Session, a Swatch TTR FIVE(5)STAR Event, went off last night in Vail, Colorado, USA. A good mix of riders came out to Vail despite the crazy weather that has been making travels a bit difficult in Colorado. Things kicked off at the Session, with the Steel & Sky rail jam, getting everyone pumped up for Saturdays Slopestyle contest. Once again, the Session crew didnt disappoint, with a super creative, skate-style setup that the riders were loving. The course started off with the option of a huge hip, an up-box to hip, or, riders could ride on top of the hip deck to get to a long flat-down box. The next section of the setup had a wallride perfect for some styled-out stalls, a skate-style bowl with a gigantic c-box as coping or an up gap. The last section resembled a rail jam setup with an up box-to gap-to flat down, a standard down box and a burly down-flat-down handrail.Things kicked off in the afternoon with a qualifier round knocking 40 riders down to 15. The finals ran a combination of the 15 qualifiers plus 5 invited riders for a session under the lights at the base of Golden Peak. The crowd stayed warm in an unconventional way
