Snowboarding on the East Coast has been rough this year. Hate to say it, but little snowfall is never fun, especially when its counterpart is getting all the goods. Still, there's an underlying appeal to most Northeast mountains that makes it hard to not want to spend at least some time there. At the forefront of this claim is a hard-to-replicate contest scene that prioritizes tradition over anything else.
In years past, we seen (and lost) this with Killington's Rails to Riches, and if you rewind it even further you can muster up some controversy over Stratton departure from the US Open. Contests have come and gone, but there's an East-Coast constant that's endured the rest. Loon's Last Call is the longest running snowboard event on the East, and given it turned 21 this year, it's worth noting its lasting influence.
