2018 Brighton, UT - Contest Recap

Combine Utah’s claim for the “Greatest Snow on Earth” with a scene that literally spawned modern day urban riding and you have the makings of an all-time event for stop 3 of the Burton Qualifiers tour. Brighton Resort was the destination, and steady snowfall all day was a welcome sight for the region’s top up-and-coming riders. It was near whiteout conditions at times, but with a $20,000 prize purse on the line, it didn’t seem to matter.

Brighton’s legendary park crew shaped up a mix of jibs and a jump, including a rollercoaster box, which gave riders plenty of options to flex their muscles. The rollercoaster even coughed up at least one move that may or may not be a first-ever in competition. In the end, paychecks went to the top three in both the Open and 15 & Under divisions, while the top six in each division got an invite to the tour finals at Seven Springs, Pennsylvania.
