Slopestyle FIS World Championship
Friday, January 18
Stoneham Mountain Resort
Slopestyle is the new Olympic discipline that will be presented during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi and for a first time ever during the Snowboard Jamboree in Quebec 2012.
The discipline Slopestyle has been known more as a “freestyle” discipline and more marginal than the other disciplines and was presented for the first time during the World Cup in Calgary in 2010.
It’s a judged competition, in the same way as a skateboard competition. So the performance of the athlete is extremely important rather than the speed.
This discipline is popular amongst the youth, and of course having a local athlete like Seb Toutant (gold medalist of X-Games and World Cup) makes the attention around this event even more powerful.
The slopestyle is a unique course where the jumps and long rails are combined in a similar way to what we can find in a snowpark, but of course…just a little bit bigger….
The athletes will be judges on the originality and quality of each performance, on each jump and each rail.
The slopestyle – presented by the restaurants Subway is a first ever for eastern Canada.
Not only will the competition be fierce, but the mountain will be crowded with huge crowds and media.
