Hailing from Blowing Rock, North Carolina, eighteen-year old Luke Winkelmann is a budding superstar in the snowboard world.

Coming off a breakout season, what Luke accomplished last year was nothing short of impressive. He placed fourth in Slopestyle and won “Rookie of the Year” at the Burton US Open of Snowboarding Championships in Vail, Colorado. He then went on to take home the MVP award at the first annual Red Bull Recharged at Mammoth Mountain, California.

Luke is excited to compete just four hours from his hometown of Blowing Rock in front of his closest friends and family members at the official kick-off event of the 2019/2020 snowboard season.

This is the first time that the snowboard world has descended upon Atlanta to showcase the world’s best competitive riders. For Luke, it hits close to home and he knows that all eyes will be on SunTrust Park on December 20th and 21st. Many of them will be watching the local phenom.
