Slopestyle returns to Big White at the hands of Tom Van Steenbergen. The course got a revamp with taller landings for improved flow and the riders were stoked. With travel restrictions easing up, some friendly faces from down south were able to make it over the border to see if they still have what it takes. With this year's events not being included in the FMB, this gathering was truly for the love of the sport. Follow along and feast your eyes on some world-class slopestyle from a little Canadian mountain resort called Big White.

 No crowds but we had to sneak watch it from in the forest. Amazing runs by everyone and great vibe even without the crowds. Hopefully next year COVID will be gone and the resort will be able to better showcase how much the bike park has come in the last 4 years.

 Make sure Nothing EVER ! lasts more than a minute.. or possibly 3,25 minutes for a "world cup" event.... cause Rad Bros might git tired
