Rossignol Snowboards Attack The North Face Masters !

This weekend Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort hosted the 2nd annual North Face Masters of Snowboarding and the Rossignol team was there to represent! 

After a tough day of qualifying in the area known as Silver Fox, the contest venue moved over to the challenging slopes of North Baldy, an area known for steep chutes and huge cliffs.
 
Saturday’s final saw plenty of Rossignol team riders battling it out including Forrest Shearer, Wyatt and Yancy Caldwell, Ralph Backstrom, Ryland Bell and Tyler Anderson in the men’s division and Snowbird local Camila Brown qualifying 5th for the women.  When the dust settled Squaw Valley’s Ralph Backstrom stood on the podium in 2nd with Ryland Bell in 7th, and Snowbird’s own Tyler Anderson taking 10th after a really exciting run that would have surely put him on the podium if he could have only held on after sending a man-sized Cab 5 (switch frontside 540) off a nasty 40’ cliff. 
In the women’s division Camila Brown put in a strong showing finishing just out of the top ten in 11th in her first contest ever!
