TTR World Snowboard Tour

Points List

Tour Structure

The World Snowboard Tour is structured so that riders on all levels, from amateurs to professionals, can compete on the same global tour. All riders on all levels are ranked on the World Snowboard Tour Ranking Lists and Points Lists, in their respective disciplines. Over 3000 riders compete each year on the tour to collect points for the rankings.

The World Snowboard Tour events are built on a 3-tier system and consist of 6 Star Levels. The World Snowboard Tour Star accreditation denotes the significance of the event on a global scale, the number of the World Snowboard Tour Ranking points obtainable, the overall quality of the event and the level of competition. 1Star is the lowest star rating and 6Star is the highest star rating for an event. 1-3Star events fall within Tier 1, 4 and 5Star events fall into Tier 2, and 6Star events fall into Tier 3.

Start & End of Season

The 7 World Snowboard Tour Championship titles are awarded at the final 6 Star event of the season to the male and female riders in each discipline with the best cumulative ranking results.

The World Snowboard Tour is a year-round, with the new season kicking off immediately after the crowning of the World Snowboard Tour Champions of the previous season.

The 2014/15 season started on March, 10th, 2014.

The 2014/15 season will end with the last 6 Star Event of the season . 


Tier System Breakdown

  • Tier 1 – Regional/National: 1Star to 3Star level events provide a proving ground for young and up and coming riders. Riders competing on the 1Star to 3Star levels can collect valuable World Snowboard Tour Ranking Points, while gaining recognition and working their way up to compete in higher level events on the tour.
  • Tier 2 – International Qualifiers: 4Star to 5Star levels of competition represent the top-level events on the World Snowboard Tour leading up to the World Series Events (6Stars). The 4Star level provides a stepping-stone for riders who are on the verge of breaking through to the international level of competitive snowboarding. The 5Star level offers very high-level international competitions, in a high profile and progressive setting.
  • Tier 3 – World Series: 6Star events showcase the highest and most progressive level of riding on the World Snowboard Tour. Significant prize money, TV and global media coverage, coupled with top-notch progressive setups and formats attract the best riders in the world.

Transparent Rookie-to-Professional Tour Structure

An important aspect of the World Snowboard Tour (and a valuable incentive to riders) is the seamless rookie-to-pro structure allowing younger talent to climb the ranks and develop their career as a professional snowboarder. Young riders can start out competing on the regional or national level (Tier 1 events), work their way up to compete on the international level (Tier 2) and ultimately compete at the elite international level (Tier 3).
