January 10, 1999, The U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix, sponsored by: Chevy S-10
@ Copper Mtn., COLORADO

Some of the worldís best snowboarders took to it in the halfpipe this week. A $10,000 grand prize for both the Men and Women brought about some strong finishes. In the end it was Michael Michaelchuck who went back to Canada a happy man. How aboot that ehí? His 900 Haakonflip was the most beautiful display of technical mastery I have ever seen. Steamboat Springs Local, Shannon Dunn, showed what it was all about after going bigger and smoother than just about anybody there. With the millenium approaching I will be watching to see who is riding like itís 1999. Believe me, you should be too.
