North Face Masters

Photos and words: Diane Harrington

Shannan Yates has once again taken first place at her home mountain of Snowbird in the last stop of the North Face Masters of Snowboarding. Shannan also claimed the overall tour title for 2012. This is Shannan’s second overall tour title and her 6th Katana sword making her the most decorated female rider in tour history. With stats like that and the amazing person Shannan is maybe Snowbird will finally sponsor her season pass next year….

Second place ladies finish went to long time Snowbird local Beth Weissman. Third place was taken by Cindy Lou Grant another Snowbird shredder. Nice work to all the Snowbird ladies that killed it last weekend!

Other notable Snowbird finishes were Jacob Levine, a Snowbird employee and head coach of “Team Utah” the freestyle snowboarding team making the podium with a 4th place finish. Tenth place finish was awarded to Tyler Anderson who put on one of the best shows of the day.  We all hope to see more of Snowbird’s male riders in the top 10 next year.
