â€Oxbow Back To Powder: A Backcountry Contest By the Riders For the Ridersâ€
Manhattan Beach, CA (FEB 2009) – Oxbow has been rolling out with high performance outerwear for backcountry since1986. In its continuing support for the backcountry experience, Oxbow created a perfect outlet for the riders to take it back to the roots. Recently, the Oxbow Back To Powder event was an awesome breakthrough that exemplified the brandâ€™s creativity and commitment to snowboarding and freeskiing. The event was held on Feb 1st -7th in the eco-friendly ski area of ArÃªches Beaufort, a place known by the best Backcountry riders in Europe.
With the help of pro snowboarder Christoph Weber (Austria) and pro freeskier Laurent Favre (France), Oxbow gathered some of the best riders from all over the world for a six-day contest.
â€œSince the beginning of the winter I helped to organize this special event together with Laurent Favre and Oxbow. We were all super motivated for a sick week of riding and good times on the mountains of ArÃªches Beaufort. All was well planed and the Riders list was promising. Not only really good athletes, but also Skiers and Snowboarders who share the spirit for the Mountain and the Sport.
