March 8, 2012 – Vancouver, BC, Canada
“The Shred Show,” a TTR 5-star event, including Slopestyle, Big Hip jump and Boarderstyle will take place during the famous Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler, BC, Canada.
For 15 years, Saturday night during the WSSF has always been reserved for the biggest event, the biggest crowd and the most energy. On April 14th capacity crowds will witness the world’s best snowboarders compete on a huge hip jump in a 2 round elimination and superfinal format for $25,000 in prize money.
With the inclusion of Slopestyle in the 2014 Olympic games it makes sense for us to take it back to where it all started: Blackcomb’s Terrain Park will be the venue for The Shred Show Slopestyle on April 16th. The course will challenge all riders to showcase their skills and reach new levels in the sport of snowboarding by not limiting the riders to any one type of slopestyle.
With its global debut at “The Show” in 2011, Boarderstyle set a new standard for unique snowboarding events where 4 riders race head to head in a traditional boardercross course and are then judged on their freestyle skills on a giant park feature. The combination of speed and tricks makes for never-seen-before action. On April 15th riders will face the next generation of Boarderstyle: more freestyle, more speed and more action.
The Shred Show will be the first North American stop of the TTR and will give tour competitors a head start on the 2012-2013 points race. Registration Details will be posted Friday, March 16th at www.wssf.com.
