It’s a music festival, it’s a snowboard contest, it’s Method Man & Redman, Andrew W.K. and Snoop D to the O to the double G! Most importantly it’s beers and hotdawgz at “the largest winter kickoff party known to man”, the 14th annual Hot Dawgz & Hand Rails!

September in SoCal usually means sunny skies and scorching temps. But the forecast at Bear Mountain called for 100% chance of snow, expertly groomed to perfection for a one-of-a-kind rail jam competition.

Kicking off winter #BearBuilt style

To say the course was challenging would be somewhat of an understatement. Lucky they had 50 of the best rail riders in the world competing. Big podium winners on the day were Francis Jobin, Jaeger Bailey, Benny Milam. Madison Blackley and Lenny Mazzotti for best trick. Other sick competitors of note were Halldor Helgason, Zak Hale, Matt Williams. Yuya Akada, Masato Toda, Ozzy Henning, Jesse Paul, Tim Humphreys and Johnny Miller. But the biggest winners on the day was the frenzy of snow-starved fanatics that showed up for the booze, beats, hotdogs and awesome snowboarding, #BearBuilt!

Also on hand were Eddie Wall and the TransWorld Staff for rider interviews and a behind the scenes look at action packed event.
