Game of GNAR Snowboarding 101

Shane Saucer Boy GNAR Snowboarding GAME

How to earn GNAR Points while snowboarding is something that came to light while on tour with the TNF Masters. Thanks to one of the female competitors a group of us started watching the ski film GNAR before our contest in Crystal Mountain, WA. After an hour of laughter and ideas galore I started thinking about how we could snowboarders could play the Game of Gnar.

Please Note: The Mountain Weekly News is not to be held responsible for your actions on snow, this guide is simply for entertainment purposes: And feel free to adapt this game and these points to your local hill/shred community.  Its one of the more fun snowboarding games you can play while on and off the snow.
