Classic events such as Superpark, the Dirksen Derby, and the Baker Banked Slalom also attract snowboarding's elite. But while the Banked Slalom is a far cry from a pipe contest, everyone is still there for a competition. There are winners and losers. Superpark has a similar vibe, but that's only after you have slowed your heartbeat down to an acceptable rate.

The Holy Bowly is different. It's not about the biggest baddest stunts. It's about creativity, finding the line, and being a part of the core of the sport we have dedicated our lives to. If you are lucky enough to be there, you are winning.
