Hope your board is tuned and your helmet is shined because it is time to SHRED!by NL Snowboard

We must have been really good this year, because Santa opened Marble for Christmas! And tonight on the West Coast it is snowing like crazy!

It has been a long and busy summer at NL-Snowboard, but we are back in the swing of things and anxious to put this snow to good use!

So with that goal in mind here is the event list for 2012:

( Alternate date Feb 5th)

Location: Marble Mountain, Steady Brook, NL

NL-Snowboard and The RBC Riders program  introduce riders to competitive freestyle snowboarding through a Slopestyle event, combining the basics of snowboarding with fun-filled competition. Slope Style is a series of jumps, rails and features down a slope.  Riders can do as many runs as possible, within the time period, signalling to judges when they are ready for a judged run. While this is a competitive series the focus is on fun and personal achievement, medals are awarded to the top three scorers in each division, but all participants come away with something! The focus is on fun!

Sunday, Feb 26 – RBC Boarder Cross Event

(Alternate Date March 4)

Location: Marble Mountain, Steady Brook, NL

Snowboardcross  (SBX) is a timed event over a course with a variety of features, such as turns, berms (or banked areas), jumps, and rollers. The RBC Riders event uses a slingshot format (one rider on the course at a time), and the features on the course are designed to facilitate the development of the ABC fundamental snowboard skills: Agility, Balance, and Coordination of jumping and turning. Our ability to offer an event in this discipline depends on snowfall, as it requires a great deal of snow to move around to create the features required. In the event that there is insufficient snow to hold a SBX event, we will host a slopestyle event.

Registration 9:00am

Event start 10:00am

Awards Ceremony 1:00pm
