Forrest DeVore, 31, of Bend, taps the tail of his snowboard on the top of a tree stump as he sails over a set of double jumps near the Sunrise Chair at Mt. Bachelor on Wednesday. DeVore was participating in SuperPark 16, in which professional snowboarders ride larger-than-usual snowpark features, documented by photographers and videographers. This is the second year Snowboarder Magazine has held its annual SuperPark at Mt. Bachelor.

This year, four teams — from Mt. Bachelor, Loon Mountain, N.H., Boreal, Calif., and Seven Springs, Pa. — built the features. SuperPark is an invitation-only event, but the Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge&Luau on Saturday is open to all snowriders. For more information, visit www.mtbachelor.com.
