    “It was just f**king amazing to be a part of what just happened tonight,” said Torstein Horgmo, a gold X Games medal dangling from his neck, and still slightly winded after the 18-minute jam session Big Air final. Trailing Oakley teammates Stale Sandbech and defending gold medalist Mark McMorris throughout the final, Horgmo – who won the event in 2011 – had one last chance to land the move he believed would be the difference-maker: the switch backside triple cork 1440, a trick he landed for the first time a week before coming to Aspen and one that had never been landed in competition.

Over the course of the five-day gathering of the world’s best snowboarders and freeskiers, an Oakley athlete flipped and flew their way onto the podium in 8 of the 10 events.

    In a country like Norway, where the quality of snowboarders runs deep, to be recognized as the best in the bunch means something. You’re doing something right. You’re on the right path. Not that we thought any differently about Stale Sandbech, but by being named Norwegian Snowboarder of the Year, it’s clear that State is killing it. “This was really big for me!” Stale said. “All the other guys nominated were riders I really respect and I am really proud to be named among them.”
