On Friday August 19th 2022, Mike Liddle battled Cooper Whittier in the head to head elimination of the first round of the 2022 Game Of Big SNOW presented by Dakine at Big Snow American Dream in East Rutherford, NJ. Mike Liddle and Cooper Whittier were the first battle to drop. The two well-known street snowboarders were guaranteed to be a close game. Both riders have heavy bags of tricks. Cooper was first to drop with a back 270 to the down of the DFD with classic Coop style and then Mike delivered. We overheard Mike saying that was one of his first times landing that trick. And then the game was on. After back to back makes on both ends, Mike showed Cooper up with Back 1 SWBS 360 on the flat bar. Cooper was able to get Mike with two DFD tricks but the game ended with Cooper at SNOW and Mike with SN after the latter set down front lip pretzel. Mike Liddle advances to face Johny O'Connor in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Game Of Big SNOW presented by Dakine.
