A Winter ritual that brings more life to the hills of Wisconsin... Properly referred to as the "Ski Hill", often brown with a thin white dusting just off the well-traveled highway made of 1 part snow, 3 parts the machine blown wintery mix, and a thick and rigid icy foundation. The conditions of the snow don't really matter. The people flock. There is a night-before-Christmas excitement that runs through you as quickly leave your workday, school day, or supper just a bit early to get up to Trollhaugen and link up with your crew.
There is something that almost feels religious about the "ski hill" located about 60 miles Northeast of the twin cities. A midwestern snowboard mecca of sorts...
The pilgrimage, bodily sacrifice, sanctified cheese curds, miraculous maneuvers, merciless battles, godly figures and one divine creation. Built by Marsha, Mahler, Boody, and the crew, Troll's often family-friendly facade (complete with Christmas music over the area-wide PA) is actually a coliseum where young gladiators cut their teeth and eventually build their skills big enough to reimagine the constraints of freestyle snowboarding. It is completely non-conventional, but a niche of snowboarding so pure. The calculus is often unfathomable and all too often we find ourselves asking, "How?"
We decided this was the right venue to showcase Arbor Snowboards 2021/'22 freestyle offering. Please enjoy :)
