The second annual Think Thank x Summit at Snoqualmie Sessions went down earlier this month just before Superpark. If you haven’t heard yet, Think Thank is making two movies this year! Jesse Burtner had invited both crews from Think Thank Almanac and Right Turn Left Turn movies to session a custom park that was more of an organic playground, designed by the man himself. Day one consisted of “Rubble Tubes.” Jesse told the park crew to basically simulate an avalanche debris field and randomly place lift tower tubes amongst the rubble. When we showed up on the first day, it was nothing less than chaotic, amazing and creative. The crew quickly went to work with Tuffy shovels and bags of salt and carved out their own hits, redirects, combos and lines. What went down that first day was a classic Think Thank brainstorm session that resulted in some signature weird snowboarding and a strong resurgence of the swivel. Buff Moose aka Brandon Hammid and Tucker Andrews took it upon themselves to huck backies into the flats, while Chris Beresford, clad in his throwback early nineties gear, was performing his sweet buttery moves flowing from tube to rubble flawlessly. Other highlights that day were Ted Borland jamming a corrugated tube, pushing it downhill, and jibbing it once again as it stopped movingl Parker Duke gapping a twenty-five foot-long tube to a mini corrugated boardslide that was nothing less than psycho; Mitch Richmond tube jamming to backie right into a 50-50 on another tube; and Brandon Reis…well, Brandon did a lot of insane stuff, but let’s just say he has really good board control.
