Though this contest may be for the young at heart, this week’s methods have the look of aged pros. Durrell Williams, Jared Winkler, and NoahMT are the standout methodists from the contest thus far and will be moving on to the finals for a chance at the Grand Prize.

A great method exudes confidence, creativity, and the euphoria that only a heel edge grab, back arch and donkey kick can express. These qualities are attained in the below photos, nice work boys, enjoy your winnings.

For the whole month of February we will be giving away three Burton/SNOWBOARDER prize packs a week to the best methods posted in the Burton Community. Each week, the 3 best methods will be posted right here at SNOWBOARDER. From those 12 prize pack winners one will be selected as the ultimate method’er and win a 2011 Burton Method.

We've heard of taking the park to the streets and the park to the backcountry, but Noah here appears to be taking the backcountry to the backcountry to the backcountry with this pole-jam method.

If this doesn't make you want to destroy your computer, head for the hills and find something to jump and tweak off then you are not a snowboarder.
