THE HOLY OLY REVIAL TURNS SEVEN…DEFIES LOGIC…AND SAVES SNOWBOARDING!
The Summit at Snoqualmie and Lib Technologies are damn pleased to bring you the remedy to your Olympic hangover…The Holy Oly Revival on Saturday, February 20th at Summit East/Hyak.
IOC judges? Nope. Rolling Stone covers for the winners? Nope. Matching uniforms? Nope. Bob Costas? Nope. Big-Ass QP with a bunch of peeps shredding and chowing down Cobra Dogs? Oh Yeah!
The Holy Oly Revival has built itself into the biggest anti-contest in North America with a continued focus on what makes snowboarding rad…friends, progression and a 40 foot tall beer can…while taking away the aspects of contests that tend to suck…judging, structure and The Man.
“The concept of the Holy Oly from the beginning has been to have a gathering of like-minded snowboarders come together to celebrate the past, present and future of NW snowboarding.” So says event creator Krush Kulesza.
“And bananas!” chimes in Pete Saari from Lib Tech.
This year’s event returns home to the Summit East base area a year after the area suffered a year ending mudslide that still has the area closed to the public. This being the case it gives the riders and spectators their own private “Zone of Radness” featuring a 25’ tall by 60’ wide quarterpipe and the introduces “Tube City” for all your jib-oriented needs.
“An amazing zone built just for me and all my friends…and I didn’t have to learn double-corks to get it!” Lib Tech and Summit Rider, Think Thank’er and official Holy Oly emcee Jesse Burtner.
Rider/Sponsor/Media registration will be at the Main Lodge at Summit East from 10AM – Noon. The event will start sometime around Noon and end sometime after that.
Awards will be in the Main Lodge following the event, the day doesn’t end when the sun goes down…make sure and stick around after the Holy Oly Revival for the Red Bull after-party at the Timberwolf Pub at Summit West starting at 7PM….an insane line-up including Wes Makepeace, Todd Schlosser’s The Senate Arcade doing a rare acoustic set and Seattle’s Sweet Water!
Forecast is for sun and mid-forties for the event…gonna be sweet!
Huge thanks to all the sponsors that make this event possible…Summit at Snoqualmie, Lib Tech, Snowboy Productions, Red Bull, Cobra Dogs, Think Thank and Snowboarder Magazine…support those who support you.
