Big Wave Challenge

REV’D is extremely excited to be taking part in this years Big Wave Challenge! Mt Bachelor holds this one-of-a-kind event inspired by none other than legendary surfer and Mt. Bachelor Ambassador, Gerry Lopez – who is our event host! This snowboard only event will be held in the Events Arena under the Pine Marten Express lift. A series of huge sweeping banked corners, quarter pipes and spines will be shaped into wave-like features for a flowing course bringing the surf to the mountain. Riders will be judged on the same elements as a Big Wave surf competition; control, speed and power. Each person will get two runs, with judging based on a 10 point scale, and winners decided on the best combined score from both runs.
