The snowboard scene is strong in America’s Dairyland, especially at small resorts like Trollhaugen. With a chance at scoring some of the Burton Qualifiers tour’s $20k prize purse, riders came out and lapped so hard they broke a sweat despite the sub-zero temps. When the snow settled, cash prizes were dolled out to the top three in both the Open and 15 & Under divisions. For full tour info and results, head to BurtonQualifiers.com.
