The MVP award of the day went to young standout Justin Patenaude, whose nonstop attack on both the jump and the rail did not go unnoticed by the judges. Sometimes big things come in small packages. Not to be outdone by his younger brother, Kacey Patenaude took home the award for Best Trick on the Pro-Tec Rail in the 15 and under category, while Axel Théorêt won $300 big ones for the 16 and over category. Nobody went home empty handed though, as $5 Vans Doren Dollars were given out throughout the day to each rider who landed the trick they called at the top of the jump. That’s right… every time you stomped, you got paid. At the end of the day, the $5 Vans bucks were exchanged for cold, hard Canadian cash. Vans: giving everyone the chance to be a pro snowboarder.
Special thanks goes out to Bromont and all the resorts throughout the series for their continued support, all the riders that participated, and we'll see you next season!
