Rosenwald and his terrain park staff handed out $2,000 in hundred-dollar bills to best tricks and even some best spills, including local Moment Skis Rider Sean Hartel’s back flip attempts off the Red Bull Bus. An Estimated crowd of more than 3,500 spectators packed the venue for a night of world-class skiing and snowboarding. The rail jam action was split between practice and finals by Blank Paper’s snowboard movie, In Short, and Eric Iberg’s latest ski film, Idea. Iberg and film star Pep Fujas spoke to the audience before premiering their one-of-a-kind ski movie. It [Idea] was well-received,” said Fujas after the outdoor showing. “I think the crowd really enjoyed the movie and surrounding atmosphere of a bonfire and cold temperatures. This kind of reception makes me feel a whole lot better about producing the movie. It’s like all your hard work paid off, added Fujas.
