* 02.07 // Slopestyle Finals

* The Burton Global Open Slopestyle Finals *

Sunday brought us the Burton Global Open Slopestyle finals, complete with a 0% visibility fog blanket. It was rumored that half of the competitors reported not being able to ride due to hypothermia, but who knows really.. Either way the competitors threw down in some impossible conditions so they should all be applauded just for finishing their runs. With the light conditions what they were, I did my best to get some usable shots.
