Hands down this was the best Nationals event for Donek Snowboards. Our team did really well, the demo tent was a success and we gave away a snowboard.
We are proud of our Donek athletes and all the hardware they took home.

Our demo tent was the most successful is has even been. We put over 200 people on boards over the week. We also helped many athletes for their races by lending them boards when they needed then due to broken or subpar equipment.
Olympians Katie Tsuyuki and Evan Strong (Your reigning Olympic Champion) were at the tent almost daily signing autographs and inspiring kids and adults alike.
Our special guests the Pandamodium duo were on site brining some extra flavor to our location
Lastly, the whole crew enjoyed seeing the #DonekSnowboard posts roll in throughout the week for our snowboard contest. Here are the top and runner up posts

Thanks to everyone who came over to the tent to say hello, grab a board, get a poster or learn something new. We are already looking forward to next season.
