Ms. Superpark 2012 Presented by Gatorade is a Wrap
SAN CLEMENTE, CA (May 1, 2012) — Ms. Superpark 2012 Presented by Gatorade is in the books, and it was one of the best Ms. Superparks we’ve ever seen. For four days, some of the world’s most renowned female snowboarders lapped a pristine park built by Snow Park Technologies, along with Squaw’s head pusher Jess Richitelli and her diligent park crew, and though the summit of Squaw saw some inclement weather, it didn’t hold the ladies back from producing some of the most inspiring photos and video clips of the year.
For four days, established superstars like Spencer O’Brien, Erin Comstock, Jamie Anderson, Sarka Pancochova, Elena Hight, Kimmy Fasani, Desiree Melancon, and Bryn Valaika lapped with the likes of newcomers and soon-to-be sensations Stefi Luxton, Kelly Underwood, Stephanie Sue Feld, Isabel Derungs, Christy Prior and more, and the energy on-hill was electric as the women pushed each other to new levels from sunup ’til sundown.
When all was said and done though, there was one rider who walked away with the Gatorade Driven From Within 2012 Ms Superpark Standout Award, and it was none other than Norwegian Kjersti Buass. Kjersti capped off her stellar season with $2,500 and the respect of all who were in attendance at Squaw witnessing her taking it to every feature. Congratulations, Kjersti, and SNOWBOARDER Magazine would like to thank all of the women who showed up for the 8th annual Ms. Superpark.
SNOWBOARDER would also like to thank Gatorade for keeping the ladies hydrated all week and for their continued support in aiding the evolution of SNOWBOARDER‘s event series. Kenny Mitchell, Director of Sports Marketing for Gatorade said, “Gatorade was happy to support Ms. Superpark this year and wishes all of the girls the best of luck as they continue pushing the sport forward.”
SNOWBOARDER would also like to thank Squaw Valley and Snow Park Technologies, for pushing up an unbelievable setup for all of those who were lucky enough to ride it.
