Heckler Magazine is proud to introduce the first annual Rattlesnake Rampage presented by Bern Unlimited, Wednesday April 3!
The first contest of it's kind, the Rattlesnake Rampage combines a switch-stance boardercross race with a switch method big air contest. No spin-to-win or pipe-jock antics here, this is real snowboarding at it's finest.
Registration starts at 9am in the main lodge at Boreal, and the boardercross portion of the contest starts at 10am on Dutchman. Once the boardercross commences, we will be heading to the Boreal Deck for DJ Paul, bbq, and beers. Switch Method practice starts at 4:30 with the second portion of the contest beginning at 5pm. Riders will get 3 chances to put down their styliest switch-method. Awards will be presented immediately following the Switch-Method portion, with the winner walking away with $1000 CASH! We have incredible prizes for 2nd and 3rd, as well as the Capita FK'N Awesome Hard Charger award - an award given to the person who ends up the bloodiest.
Drink specials and music will be going on in the Boreal Bar until 9pm. After the event ends we will be bringing to the festivities over to Java sushi in Truckee for the official afterparty!
A huge thanks to our sponsors: Bern Unlimited, Nike Snowboarding, Java Sushi, Capita Snowboards, Coal Headwear, Dye Goggles, DieCutStickers.com, Skullcandy, Woodward Tahoe, and of course Boreal Mountain.

Boreal's Expression Sessions have been going off this season with great turn-outs and epic new features being unveiled at every event. Mad props to Boreal and their badass Terrain Park Crew for the innovative setups with fun for all wanting to participate. This last one was by far the Finale and it went off so check out the good times!
When the term Friday Night Lights is mentioned, thoughts come to mind of small town football heroes carrying tradition on their backs as their athletic feats inspire awe among the crowds gathered to bask in their moments of triumph and defeat. At Boreal the same holds true except less jocks, less cheerleaders, and less "good job" pats on the butt.
Woodward Tahoe's opening day is fast approaching, and we're bringing you the latest. Since we don't know shit about construction, we'll let the press release and video do the job:
