THE MILE HIGH and STYLEWARS Presented by Carlton Dry.
The Australian Pro-Tour, consisting of The Mile High and Stylewars are both open for registration. The slopestyle events are part of the World Snowboard Tour with a 4Star ranking and offer riders a combined prize pool of $40,000US.
The tour starts in Thredbo, NSW with The Mile High from the 27 – 29 August and finishes in Falls Creek, Victoria with Stylewars, The Australian Slopestyle Championships from the 3 – 5 September.
Stylewars has been the premiere event in Australia for over 10 years now and has attracted the biggest names in snowboarding to Australia. To make the trip to Australia that much more worthwhile for riders on The World Snowboard Tour, the organisers of the event have decided to create a new event for 2012, The Mile High. With 2 events, double the prize money and World Tour points allocation, Australia is now a much more valuable destination on the Tour than past years. Going by the history of Stylewars, both events will be world class and entertaining for all riders.
The events will be run in a very similar jam format to past Stylewars events with a few new twists added in. All riders in both male and female divisions will compete mixed together in one field and riders who are deemed unworthy will be taken out of the field throughout the sessions. The fields will be reduced daily to a final 20 for a 1-hour jam final. Both events will have slightly different formats that will be posted to the event’s websites and published on the World Snowboard Tour site closer to the start dates.
The Australian Pro-Tour is presented by Carlton Dry and sponsored by Burton Snowboards.
Registration closes on the 10th of August – so register now through both sites.
