One. Sometimes one is all you need. One takeoff. One landing. One chance to lay it all on the line between the two.

That is the essence of Whip Off and Best Trick competitions held at Big White in Kelowna, British Columbia on July 12-13, 2019.

There were some serious skills on display. Before we get too far into this, a huge shout out to Dustin Gilding and the boys at Loft. None of this is possible without the builders. These guys have killed it in an unseasonably wet summer at Big White. Well done.

The venue. Everything is well within walking distance, making for an all encompassing experience.

Reed Boggs was amped all night, winning Whip Off mere hours after finishing 12th in Slopestyle.

Kaylee Gibb is superwoman. Three little ones AND moves like this on a bike?
Reese Wallace buzzing the tower.

Lead in.

Is Jackson's secret nickname "Boost"? It should be.

Reece Wallace pulled in a cool hundy for this front flip.

Who gave the dog a bone?

Moving over to a little Best Trick Action. It was insane. Seriously.

Emil Johansson fine-tuned the money booter all night long. He cashed in, winning the Gold Slopestyle event.

Marcel Hunt setting huge tables all night.

Backflip -> Barspin -> Tailwhip -> Barspin -> Win for Rambo.

O-Bro going big.

Whip Off Winner Reed Boggs.
Best Trick Winner, Rambo.

No looking back now.

If you weren't here in 2018, didn't make 2019, put 2020 in the calendar right now. Big White is on to something.

 No kidding! It’s more than obvious who gave that dog a bone! I’m sure that dog is not the only one with a bone.

 I wonder how much big white is paying pinkbike to hype up their bike park ..

 Dude. Not sure what you are up to but for a park that's been only opened for a couple seasons and sells so little tickets, this is real good and priced accordingly.

 @gregmazo: never said anything about price or weither or not it was good. I was merely stating that alot more happened this weekend in b.c and all pinkbike has talked about was big white I'm pretty sure alot happened this weekend in BC like the Canada cup it's funny how pinkbike mentioned it when it happened at big white but it was hosted at SilverStar this weekend and not even a right up... You know what I'm saying man.

 @cyberoptixs: pinkbike isn't writing these, they're being submitted by the events.
