DC Hit & Run

The third and final stop for this year's DC Hit & Run wrapped up in Whistler this past weekend. It had something for everyone, from high flying big banked turns, giant canons to launch off, and mandatory big boy airs off the hip and at least a couple hits in the pipe. With a ballpark of around 100 riders ranging from little grommets to legendary DC riders Iikka and Devun, one can't help but be impressed by the organization on behalf of DC snowboarding and the events crew from Whistler Blackcomb. Mother Nature did play her part, somewhat. There was lots of sun, but not without a few freak snow storms and socked in cloudy moments.

Congratulations to the big winners Mikey Ciccarelli, Brooke Voight, and Jadyn Chomlack. See you all next year.
