This past Sunday, February 12th, the Superpass Series made its third stop at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and Sierra-at-Tahoe had more than enough snow to put together an amazing course. Tahoe’s best showed up to battle it out for an invite to Superpark 16.

Divided into three zones, Zone 1 featured two jibs; a flat-to-down rail and a large pole jam. Both features were situated on a 6 foot high step-down platform, which allowed competitors to either gap to the down portion of the rail, or send it off the pole jam. Zone 2 featured a perfectly sculpted 55 foot jump, where some of the more technical tricks of the Superpass Series thus far were put down. Zone 3 was a large hip, which could be hit either as a right-sided hip, or could be taken deep to the backside. It was a perfect setup for Superpass, built by one of the best terrain park crews in the country.

In the end, it was the death-defying stunting of Jordan Nield that earned a first place finish, along with an invite to Superpark 16. With several spin variations onto the rail, deep airs on the jump, and multiple double backflip attempts over the hip, Jordan had the crowd and competitors alike cheering. Here he one foots his way to victory…
