SNOW: Skullcandy Presents The 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM

Skullcandy Presents The 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM
Park City Wins TransAM Premier Resort Award

Carlsbad, CA - The 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAm Tour is officially a wrap after charging through nine stops across the country in its 11th season.  This year, the tour was presented by Skullcandy and sponsored by High Cascade Snowboard Camp, Zumiez, Ride Snowboards, Anon Optics, Giro Helmets, Coal Headwear, Wend Wax, Sanuk, and Muscle Milk.

Today, as voted by the TransAM event team, TransWorld SNOWboarding magazine is pleased to announce and congratulate Park City as the winner of the 2013 TransWorld SNOWboarding TransAM Premier Resort Award.

The TransAM leans heavily on the creative skills of park crews, and the 2013 tour was proof once again that its host resorts are some of the most progressive in the world.  Tour sponsors are given the opportunity to submit a feature concept that park crews customize into the mini park build. The end result is that you not only have features that represent the sponsors, but also features representative of each resort's creativity and personality.

The Muscle Milk Tower of Triumph, the Ride Snowboards Get Buck Wild theme, the Sanuk Wave, the Skullcandy Cassette Tape, the Coal Combo, and the jib-able Zumiez couch were just some of the features that Park City's Jeremy Cooper and crew incorporated into their one-of-a-kind TransAM Finals skate bowl setup.

Take a look back at the recap to see why Park City earned this year's TransAM Premier Resort Award.
