In what had to be the biggest gathering of skiing talent in one spot this year, the Sammy Carlson Invitational was THE place to be last weekend. The sun was out, and DJ Stray was on point – bringing great tunes all day and making people bob their heads to the beat. The Mt. Bachelor, Ore. course had a huge booter that ran out to a 30 by 30 wall ride. Sammy, himself, was standing at the bottom of the wall passing out over $10K throughout the day to the competitors whose tricks and style he liked. Carlson did not compete while he rehabs the torn MCL and PCL he suffered during Winter X Games this year.
At the end of this day, Torin Yater-Wallace was the judges’ and crowd’s favorite. Skullcandy Team riders, Bobby Brown, Parker White and Tanner Hall, went second, third and fourth, respectively. For Hall, just returning to competition was an accomplishment and it was great to see him back on the hill, charging all day long to a fourth place finish. In case you missed it, it’s been 3 years, 2 months on the road to recovery for Hall, after he broke both of his tibial plateaus and tore both ACLs.
Huge congrats to Sammy Carlson for throwing one of the best contests ever. This event is going to blow up and Skullcandy is proud to be supporting it from the start.
