There is officially a new rail jam that will be gathering the creme de la creme of street boarding for many years to come and it is called the Street vs Snow. The first edtion went down in Tyrol on the weekend of February 1-2, where mastermind Flo Achenrainer invited riders from every corner of the globe to throw down on a heavy street set-up with unlimited creative potential, deep in the Kaunertal Valley. Check out the video by Sarah Christopherson and photos by Andreas Mohaupt for proof that this was an honest to god hammer fest of epic proportions. Keep your peepers peeled for next year's edition!
