The best online snowboard game ever is back! Instead of moving a little character around you’ll have to get in the action yourself and not just a little – you have to do exactly what the pros are doing, or at least copy their tricks as perfectly as you can. The best imitators of all can win fame and glory – in the disguise of 5.000 USD of prize money, Horsefeather goodie packs for every tricks and coverage in magazines and on websites all over the world. That could be the break through for your snowboarding career…
Starting on December 28th, every week there will be a new pro showing a trick in a video clip that you will have to copy, film and upload to king-of-snow.com within one week. For each trick you stomp you get round points that will be added up to a final ranking. To make it easier for you, the consecutive trick will always be announced as well so you can complete 2 rounds with one riding day. The judging system was changed a bit from last year as well, and you now also get round points, that are increasing with the level of the tricks, besides the online voting points.
For every country that has at least 25 riders competing in the King of S.N.O.W there will also be a national ranking – so make sure your mates get hooked on this too! Rookies, meaning riders between 6 and 15 years, can also win amazing prizes – the best rookie will win a the Blue Tomato Rookie Award, containing a sponsorship deal with free stuff support and reduced prices in the shop. And to make the package complete, also girls should try as hard as they can – for them the title Queen of S.N.O.W is up for grabs, including a Horsefeathers Girls Outerwear and Streetwear Combo and a Blue Tomato Streetwear Package.
In the end the best 10 riders will be invited to the final, taking place April 16-18th in the Horsefeathers Superpark in Planai (AUT).
So even though it only starts in over a week time and you can still enter at any stage, make sure you register right away so you can start collecting precious points right from the start! Head over to king-of-snow.com and show the pro inside of you!
