2018 Trollhaugen, WI - Contest Recap

Boasting more jibs per vertical foot than any state in the union, Wisconsin served as the perfect first stop for the 2017-2018 Burton Qualifiers Tour. Trollhaugen was the destination, and what the hill may lack in elevation, it more than makes up for in raw local talent. With fast rope tows, creative features, and a park crew dedicated to excellence, Troll has a well-earned reputation for pumping out progressive rail riders.

A who’s who of Midwest talent was in the mix with up-and-coming rippers and well-established names all throwing down for a piece of the $20,000 prize purse. Even local legend Ethan Deiss was there, with shovel in hand, keeping the good vibes going. After the dust settled, cash was handed out 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.
