DBK, TOBI STRAUSS & STEPH MAURER IN MONTAFON - AUSTRIA
From March 24-27, 2013 at Silvretta Montafon, Austria where 36 ams and 23 legends and pros competed in the third stop of Nike Snowboarding's "Snake & Hammers." The Montafon park crew stepped up to the challenge and concocted a course to challenge even the most seasoned pros. In addition to the turns and banks of a traditional banked slalom, the course also included a stairset, side-by-side kicker setup, half-bowl mega berm, a London gap through a snow tunnel to a straight rail, a halfpipe and a small hip. The aim of each rider was to snake down course as fast as possible while dropping their best "hammers" along the way.
The set up in Montafon attracted Nixon riders David Bertschinger Karg, Stephan Maurer and Tobi Strauss and esteemed legend Nico Droz.
