Giro Hosts Poacher’s Pipe Afterhours Session at Mammoth
Poach a massive, pro-level setup with the Giro Team. Drop in, ride the FREE session, kickback with food, drinks and prizes, party, hangout or just stand on the sidelines and heckle your friends.
The Poacher’s Pipe is a new concept where riders are invited to ‘poach’ a pro-team photoshoot set-up built exclusively for Giro. This pipe is no traditional halfpipe – with a unique set-up featuring a huge tombstone hip, double quarter pipe walls and added vert extension elements influenced by the Giro team and retro California skate culture – this set-up has something for everyone.
The Poachers Pipe Afterhours Session kicks off Saturday, May 27 at Mammoth Mountain. Riders can head up the Panorama Gondola to Mammoth’s Summit at 2:30PM to shred the private pro-level, Giro Team set-up on the backside (Chair 14). At 3:30PM the session of all sessions will go down with riders showcasing their skill until dark. Giro will be shooting the event, along with top snowboard media, photographers and videographers.
During the day Giro will host a launch party and Afterhours Session rider sign-up on the Tusk Bar Sundeck at Main Lodge from 11AM–2PM. Sign-ups are limited to 75 riders only; this will fill up fast so show up early to get a spot and be part of the session.
Come poach with us!
Sign-ups will be limited to experienced, expert level terrain park skiers and riders only.
