If more guys in the competitive snowboard scene could grow beards, the Brillo pad adorning Scotty Lago's face would surely be inspiring a sport-wide trend. Lucky for us, the 2010 Olympic halfpipe bronze medalist's facial hair is much like his pipe riding, which is to say, it's a phenomenon unto itself. Lago hasn't stood atop many podiums this year, but he is largely credited as the style inspiration for many of the riders who are just starting to explode on the scene, which is an accomplishment all its own.
