The 2013 iteration of The Launch was held at Bear Mountain in weather that could loosely be classified as “very, very hot.” This would be a good place to insert some cheesy pun about how the action was “on fire,” but I will spare our readers and just say that on Day 1 last year, the snowboarding was nuts. After tearing apart the park for a good six hours, a bunch of riders, including the entire LTC gang, settled in for a sunset shoot on the hip that was no less than mind-blowing. The day 1 video does a great job of showing what went down.
