SAM Magazine—Natick, Mass., Sept. 25, 2018—Mountain resorts from around the world have only 10 days to submit entries for SAM’s 14th annual Terrain Park Contest, sponsored by Burton Learn to Ride. The November issue of Ski Area Management (SAM) magazine will showcase entries from the 2017-18 season in three categories: terrain park feature, terrain park event, and, new this year, “bread and butter.” HN TPC18

The new bread and butter category is a nod to the recent trend of building small to medium sized park features that almost anyone can hit—core park riders to relative newbies. It may not be the biggest or most creative feature in a resort’s terrain park, but its location, size, and fun factor make it the most popular.

Entering the contest is easy. Email a brief description, high-resolution picture, and/or video link to by Oct. 5. All entries will be featured on, with many making it into the November issue of SAM. All the details can be found at

Winners in each category will be decided through an online vote. Winners will receive prizes from Burton Snowboards, along with a year’s worth of bragging rights. So once you submit your entry, encourage your colleagues and constituents to support your effort.

Remember, you have to be in it to win it.
