Massachusetts Snowboarder/Entrepreneur Andrew Mutty brings Big Air and Rail Contest with Prize Money to East    (published 12/3/03)

Andrew Mutty, 24, has appeared in many snowboarding movies and snowboarding magazines as a pro-rider and is well known in the industry. Here are our recent questions and his answers.
Lauren, 12/3/03

Q. Mutty, give us your snowboarding bio in a nutshell.

A. 14 years on hill since '89, to present. That's the first time I ever rode. Never got serious until a couple of years into it. Learned mostly at Sunday River and Waterville (early years). Moved to Killington. Rode on the team for 3 years and gave up, moved to NH where I am today. I snowboard for Dynastar; Mission Six, Concepts, Smuttynose Beer.

Q. What's special about High Rollerz?

A. High Rollerz is going to make the events list of every kid in New England this year. That's what's so special about it! Its self-explanatory; High Rollerz is going to carry itself. It's a void in the East's snowboard scene that is going to be filled. "We don't have anything out here like this. We used to, back when I was growing up. There is a lot of need for this."

Q. Have you promoted any other events?

A. I started this year and have only done High Rollerz.

HighRollerz is a 5-stop tour of New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts that began with an opening jam session Nov. 8 at Tenney Mtn, NH, and concludes with the finals March 6 at Waterville Valley, NH. HighRollerz makes stops on December 13 at Sunday River, ME, January 4 at Ragged Mtn, NH, and February 21 Blue Hills, MA. (Bookmark the Events Calendar at http://www.whatsonsnow.com/ to remind yourself)

The combo format is Big Air and Rail. Riders will each have two runs where they will first hit the big air then proceed to the rail setup, which will consist of a kinked and a flat rail. The top five qualifiers from each division will advance to the final jam.

Three judges will judge each rider, each specializing in scoring a different aspect of the trick. Throughout the series riders will accumulate points. The riders with the most points in the men's and women's open division will win a wildcard to the US Open Slopestyle snowboarding event, taking place in March 2004, in Stratton VT.

"It's one of a kind, there's nothing like it," says Mutty. "Thanks to everyone who's helped out in making High Rollerz what it is today. Sponsors, mountains, individual volunteers and anyone not mentioned."
