Stop 2 of the Burton Qualifiers amateur snowboarding tour ripped through New Hampshire in the wake of a classic nor’easter blizzard on New Years Eve, 2016. The White Mountains, and the locals who live there, embody the state’s Live Free or Die mentality. Contestants hiked through 14 inches of fresh snow on sides of the un-shaped halfpipe at Lincoln, New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain Resort. With a chance at taking home some of the Burton Qualifiers tour’s $20k prize purse, riders hit the course like it was the last time they’d ride all year.
