Snowfest at USC


Mammoth Mountain and the USC Ski and Snowboard Team brought snow to downtown Los Angeles on a particularly sweltering November afternoon for the first ever Snowfest on the USC campus. As the day started the sun beat down so strongly it was hard to remember ski season has already begun, but once skiers and snowboarders hiked to the top of the 13-foot scaffolding and strapped in it was clear that there are plenty of southern Cali college team shredders who are more than ready to start the cold season. Mammoth Unbound Terrain Parks brought the mountains to them by trucking in loads of snow and setting up a sharkfin box and a flat box. DJ Jacques provided beats all day from a shady spot, trying his best to aim the speakers away from the math class next to McCarthy Quad. Vendors passing out giveaways and providing prizes for the contest winners included Nikita, Dragon, Forum, Skullcandy, Quiksilver and Thirty-two. The open rail jam was judged by Red Bull rider Zach Leach as well as Mammoth riders Molly Aguirre and Gabe Taylor. Contest winner Dominic won a full outerwear set by Quiksilver. Props to USC student Kevin Chang, SnowDogg and the sole female skier, dubbed Miss Consistency. The rail jam was followed by a Red Bull-sponsored after party at the Key Club on Sunset.
