The cornerstone event of the Southern Hemisphere season, the Burton New Zealand Open, is back as a 5Star competition and will be the first major event where men and women can bank ranking points for the TTR Halfpipe Tour Ranking and TTR Slopestyle Tour Ranking lists. The Burton NZ Open will be going down at Cardrona Alpine Resort from August 9th to 13th, 2011 and, like always, will feature some of freestyle snowboarding’s top talent. More details and the official rider’s list for the Burton New Zealand Open will be available on www.ttrworldtour.com very soon.
Across the Tasman Sea, Australia’s premiere slopestyle event, Stylewars, is getting ready to celebrate its 10th Anniversary alongside TTR. For the first time in Stylewars history, the event will hold an OPEN format, meaning that any rider can register to qualify for the event. Any riders interested in competing at the 2011 Stylewars should head to www.stylewars.com.au to complete the online registration.
