SALT LAKE CITY, UT  (March 3, 2013) – The fifth annual ThirtyTwo Day event on 3/2/13 at Brighton Resort was the biggest one yet, with the resort selling thousands of lift tickets, and two hundred snowboarders coming out to compete in the Hell Track Banked Slalom and Rail Jam contests.  DJ Jonny 5 (Jon Castro) laid down the sound track for the event at the base of Milly that quickly turned this contest into an all day party.  Thousands of people were at Brighton for the event yesterday including local shredders, media and quite a few pro and am snowboarders.

ThirtyTwo Day combines the rider’s time on the Hell Track with their score in the Rail Jam; so winning on the Hell Track only puts a rider half way to the overall win.  Time doesn’t lie, and riders’ times on the Hell Track separated the winners from the losers.  ThirtyTwo Team Riders Scott Stevens, Chris Beresford, Brandon Hobush, Chris Brewster and Spencer Schubert judged the Rail Jam that kicked off at 3 p.m.

This Halfcab Tailpress was one of many hammers Chris Frost dropped to land on the podium.
