King of Quarters
Shayne Pospisil won $9,000 and a trip to The Oakley Arctic Challenge in Norway for taking first in the snowboard portion of the inaugural King of Quarters on Aspen Mountain, Friday, January 25.
Also taking home a cash prize, Scotty Lago won $4,000 for second place and Chad Otterstrom was awarded $2,000 for third.
Riders reached heights of over 20 feet, soaring higher than the Silver Queen Gondola cable, under the lights on Aspen Mountain.
Oakley’s Tanner Hall won the ski portion of the inaugural King of Quarters event on Saturday night, the first ever quarterpipe competition on Aspen Mountain.
Just before the ski competition on Saturday, D&E Ski and Snowboard Shop in Aspen hosted an athlete signing across the street from Gondola Plaza. Seth Morrison, Jon Olsson, Sammy Carlson, Jossi Wells and Jacob Wester were on-site to sign posters for stoked Aspen fans.
The King of Quarters quarterpipe construction was led by Frank Wells, of the Aspen/Snowmass terrain park crew, and in partnership with Snow Park Technologies (SPT). The event was walking distance from Gondola Plaza.
