Hoards of riders are piling into Mammoth Lakes, California for the 13th annual Snowboarder Magazine Men’s Superpark presented by Gatorade. Before the action gets too heavy, we went out and caught up with Oren Tanzer—the guy running the show here at Mammoth, as well as the Bear and Loon Mountain park crews who are manning the cats and sculpting this year’s park—which is shaping up to be super as all hell. Check out the building of the park, and check back for more video updates here on snowboardermag.com as the airtime gets underway.
