And this event is the second one. The location is Ski Jam Katsuyama in Fukui Prefecture. This is the first Burton Mystery Series in western Japan. There were concerns that the event would not be held due to this season's warm winter, but in order to meet the expectations of snowboarders who were looking forward to it, the diggers began constructing the course about a week before the event. The staff at Ski Jam Katsuyama has repeatedly transported large amounts of snow from the sides of other courses within the ski resort using special dump trucks. The course was built and the event was held despite the recent snowfall.
On the day of the event, March 3, a total of 9 snowboarders from a wide range of ages, from 4 to 64 years old, gathered.
Guest riders Kurumi Imai, Yuya Nakayama, and Yuki Takeuchi participated, and while exciting the venue with their stylish riding, they also had a great time talking with participants and taking commemorative photos.
The participants had a great time in the pouring snow and enjoyed the event by doing challenging skis to do their best.

In the blessed snow of March. The event, held for the first time in western Japan, was a great success.
Many people like the open atmosphere, which makes it easy for people to participate even if it's their first time attending Banked.
During the preparation stage, there was a huge struggle due to the lack of snow, and large amounts of snow had to be brought in from other locations to build the park. Thanks to the tasteless snow just before, the park was completed safely.
