Entering its 7th year, Monster Boarderstyle has gone from being an experimental event to a legitimate tour poised to make its greatest impression to date. With three event stops and $30,000 in prize money, the one-of-a-kind snowboard contest conceptualized by Monster Energy Canada is charging through British Columbia.
The tour kicks off at Silver Star Mountain Resort, March 10th & 11th. Followed by Fernie Alpine Resort, March 17th & 18th. Concluding at the finals in the Bethlehem of Boarderstyle, Whistler Blackcomb, April 14th & 15th.
Every stop of the Monster Boarderstyle Tour is free to enter and open to all competent riding abilities. The snowboard-only event consists of a Men’s and Women’s Open category. On top of cash prizing, the winners of the Silver Star and Fernie events will receive invite’s (including transportation and accommodation) to compete in the final event at Whistler Blackcomb.
Watching the chaos or competing in it is only half the fun. Monster Energy won’t just show up, they’ll bring the party. Each Boarderstyle stop guarantees a legendary after party. Monster DJ’s will keep the party lit till there’s nothing left in the tank. Don’t be caught on the outside looking in, make sure you attend the Monster Boarderstyle Tour 2017
WHAT IS BOARDERSTYLE?
Boarderstyle: [also see: fast-freestyle] A hybrid boardercross, slopestyle, obstacle course race where 4 riders run the gauntlet simultaneously. A step down jump awaits racers at the finish line. On this feature, it is mandatory to perform a full rotation trick (360 spin, flip, or greater). Riders will place in the order they cross the finish line. UNLESS! The rider placing behind performed a superior trick. Judged on difficulty, style, and execution. Judges then have the power to reverse the placing order of the riders in contention. Dreams will be shattered, glory will be stolen.
A tournament style bracket system has the top 2 placing riders from each round advancing onto the next until there is a 4 rider final race for the prize money.
What to expect: A unique course for each stop consisting of jibs, jumps, berms, rollers, pond-skims, spines, step-ups, DJ’s, high energy and great times.
