On April 15th, 2012 Arbor Snowboard's FACE/OFF event was held at Boreal Mountain Resort. With the DJ blasting music on the sideline, contestants registered for a chance to compete for the $1,000 prize purse. It was a clash of amateur shred individuals who wanted a shot at the cash winnings. Some of the riders included the defending champ from last year's FACE/OFF event, Erik Leon, along with Ben Ross, Kai Wiggens, Colton Morgan, Alex Hereford, Jeremy (Lemi) Landy, Jordan Welter and other standouts.
All riders were on a mission to show their snowboarding skills to impress the judges in order to advance to the next rounds. The first round was an open jam format with sixteen semi-finalists who were advanced to play games of S.N.O.W. The contestants were knocked out one by one in semi-finals as the tricktical maneuver difficulties increased, and it narrowed down to four finalists. The battle for first place was between the last two competitors, Kai Wiggens and Colton Morgan. After multiple rebates trying a backside 270 to fakie, the trick was finally landed by Colton Morgan, earning him $600 and making him the winner of Arbor Snowboard's FACE/OFF event.
Thanks to everyone coming out and making the event fun, and thanks to the event sponsors that made it possible: Arbor, Red Bull, Boreal Mountain Resort, Electric Visual, Flux Bindings, Sessions, Aerial7, Sand Box Helmets, Arnette and Elm Company.

Dangerzone Season 3 was truly a blessing. Using entertainment, lifestyle and action, we tackled controversial ideas, creatively battled ignorant negativity, and projected snowboarding's core values: passion, fun and friends. Snowboarding is just snowboarding, it can be done in a myriad of ways and all of which should be embraced and pursued. I hope this project inspired you, even in the slightest, to believe in yourself, your capabilities and the true essence of snowboarding. This would not have been possible without deep commitment from many individuals whom I am utterly grateful. - Nick ViscontiRead More
