Orage Masters delivers

A couple of us here at Backcountry.com were privileged enough to head off to Mammoth this past weekend to check out the Orage Masters. With 10" of pow the day before, Saturday dawned bluebird and warm enough down low to enjoy the comp in style but chilly enough up top that I managed to find some untracked pow. The features for the park were cut and prepped to perfection by the Mammoth Unbound crew. Once the comp was underway, an all out aerial assault ensued.

Team Dynastar (reportedly pronounced Di-nO-star) cleaned up taking home the goodies. Most impressive to me was Matt Sturbenz who came out firing on all pistons and absolutely crushed the vertical box, nearly reaching the top.

On a side note, if you ever have the chance to go to Mammoth, do not hesitate. The mountain is huge and the park - well the park is hands down the best I've ever seen. As a fellow BC employee stated, "Two perfectly cut pipes within 30 yards of each other with clean hits everywhere in sight, it doesn't get any better than Mammoth"
