Best Winter Event
Now in its third year, this year’s Honda Session will be a sleeker version of the contest riders and fans have come to love. Aside from the 80,000 in cheddar, the Session draws snowboarding’s biggest names because it is a rider-driven event that is constantly evolving.
“In Transworld Snowboarding, the riders rated this the fifth-best event in the world just after two years,” said Greg Johnson, competition director. “I think the reason for that was the progression. The X Games has the coverage, the TV stuff. The U.S. Snowboarding Open has the history.”
The competition director of The Session has been around the sport’s competitive scene almost since its genesis.
The Session’s progression continues this year with a new competitive format, an improved slopestyle and rails course, an innovative judging system and a never-done-before compensation structure.
