EVENT: 2011 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Premier Resort Award Goes to Bear Mountain!

2011 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Premier Resort Award Goes to Bear Mountain!
 
The ninth annual TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM ultimate amateur snowboard contest series is officially a wrap.  This year the tour touched down at the most progressive park resorts across the United States including Waterville Valley, NH; Big Boulder, PA; Otsego Club, Gaylord, MI; Park City, UT; Northstar-at-Tahoe, CA; and Bear Mountain, CA.  From the immaculately sculpted High Cascade butter snow bus, to the giant Coal beanie-wearing bear head, to the Ride Snowboards tropical pond skim, the 2011 resorts truly embraced the TransAM as “the only amateur contest with professional fun.”
 
Today, TransWorld SNOWboarding and High Cascade Snowboard Camp are pleased to announce and congratulate Bear Mountain as the winner of the 2011 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Premier Resort Award.
 
“This year’s TransAM tour rocked harder than any other – we couldn’t be more proud of the effort, passion, and long hours put forth by the resorts and park crews who made the 2011 tour possible.  They have set a new standard in creative mini park building and fun vibe amateur shredding.” –Christian Thomas, TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Event Manager

Thanks to all the 2011 sponsors, High Cascade Snowboard Camp, Zumiez, Ride Snowboards, ANON, Giro Helmets, Coal Headwear, Drop Mfg, and Vitamin Water, for helping to make the 2011 TransAM one for the history books!
 
All competitors and event winners were geared up with the hottest loot from tour sponsors and TransWorld SNOWboarding.  The top male and female finishers from stops one through five were hooked up with trips, courtesy of Zumiez, to compete in the TransAM finals at Bear Mountain.  Courtesy of Ride Snowboards, the 2011 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM overall champions, Tasha Sagucka and Garrett Warnick, walked away with all expense paid trips to the Ride Shakedown at the Summit at Snoqualmie, WA.
