Dirtboarders shred Donner Summit

Donner Ski Ranch is proud to host NPD All-Terrain Skateboards’ Second Annual Donner Summit Downhill Festival on June 22 and 23, 2002. As a qualifier for the All-Terrain Boarding Association’s (ATBA) National Championships, professional and amateur racers will compete for a shot at the most prestigious event in the history of the sport. Witness the thrill of mountainboarders flying down the rough dirt race track through high-speed banked turns and across massive jumps at speeds up to 40 miles per hour, racing head to head for glory and prizes. This event will deliver the top professional athletes in the sport, including the world renowned NPD Racing Team. Come and see if the local favorites, the NPD Racing Team, can hold off the fierce competition from Colorado powerhouse Team MBS and conquer the podium.

All-Terrain boarding has grown worldwide as an extreme sport with appeal to all ages and genders. Athletes give way to gravity on “All-Terrain Boards” pumped up to handle the roughest of terrain, bumps, and hits. Featuring Dual Slalom, Freestyle Big Air, and Super Downhill competitions, this event will bring out the gnarliest dirt riders. Dual Slalom racers compete head to head at high speeds down a rugged, obstacle filled course. Athletes in the Freestyle Big Air competition will be soaring overhead with daring freestyle maneuvers like Rodeo Flips and 540 spins, and are sure to keep the crowd on their feet. In the Super Downhill event riders reach top speeds down a long and windy dirt road. Cash and product prizes will be awarded to top competitors, and the ATBA West Coast Champions will be crowned. Boards and dirt will be flying high!

Free product demos, great BBQ food, and lots of fun! This weekend promises to be a positive, family friendly atmosphere. For more information and directions to Donner Ski Ranch and the event, go to http://www.npdlandboard.com, or call Chris Pincetich at (530) 297-0150, or events@npdlandboard.com.
