The 4th Annual Abominable Snow Jam Kicks Off with Quarterpipe

The fourth annual Burton Abominable Snow Jam kicked off today with perfect weather for the quarterpipe event hosted by High Cascade Snowboard Camp on Mt. Hood. Word is the yeti clan is back in town for the event and they brought a new addition to the crew. It was a relaxed scene up on the glacier with a crowd chilling in the summer sun while some of the top riders in the world dropped into the monster 30-foot quarterpipe created by Planet Snow Design. It was a jam format with men and women dropping together for a 90-minute finals session. The A-list of riders included the likes of Mason Aguirre, Peter Line, Keir Dillon, Kelly Clark, Scotty Lago and Hana Beaman who were all charging at the massive wall of snow.

For the men, Mason Aguirre was riding well, putting down a big frontside 720, a smooth frontside 540 and a backside 900 to take third place. Kevin Pearce had some good drops with huge straight airs and a stylish McTwist to take the second spot. And it It was Norweigen rider, Torstien Horgmo, who tore the quarterpipe to pieces throwing a large backside 720, a huge backside air, a switch backside 360 and a Michalchuk to take the first spot and $10,000. Japanese rider, Fumiyuki Murakami, was blasting over the lip of the quarterpipe going 22-feet out to claim highest air and a 2008 Polaris 600 RMK Snowmobile. Jack Mitrani was dropping in a bit higher up then the rest of the riders and was throwing airs in the 25-foot range but just couldn’t get the landing gear down. Scotty Lago took home the best trick award and a shiny new Rolex watch with a fluid ally-oop 720 truck driver.

Kelly Clark, Yuki Furihata and Hana Beaman were absolutely ruling on the women’s side of things. Kelly was on point all afternoon pulling off some big airs and spins to take third. She also went the highest out of the women’s field claiming biggest air and a brand new Polaris snowmobile. Yuki was throwing some large straight airs and a nice McTwist to take the second spot. Yuki was also awarded best trick and a Rolex for her stylish McTwist. And it was Hana Beaman who was charging with some backside airs, a backside 360 and a McTwist to take first place and $5,000.

Over the next two days, riders will be throwing down in the 22-foot pipe at High Cascade Snowboard Camp and tearing it up on the Timberline slopestyle course. After all is said and done, one rider will be crowned the 2007 Abominable Snow Jam champion and will walk away with a brand new Volvo C30 and one male and one female rider will be awarded the Harley-Davidson Inspired Ride award and take home a 2007 Harley-Davidson XL 1200N Nightster. Stay tuned for more from the ASJ.
