The worlds best Freestyle Snowboard Action will take place in Saas-Fee, April
the 19th to the 22nd. Saas-Fee has the honor to present one of the last stops of
the unique “Ticket to Ride Snowboard World Tour 06/07”. Frederik
Kalbermatten and Marco Schwab as hosts and a kick ass party program the
SNICKERS Classic & POPCORN Wallride is going to be the perfect end of the
season in the Swiss Alps.

Ride with your Idol

A TTR 3-Star with a slope style competition is taking place the
first time in Saas-Fee. It’s an exclusive opportunity for talented
snowboarders to compete against your idol and maybe you
assert your claim to the prize money of
10’000 US-Dollars beside the 15 invited
Snowboard Stars. The TTR 3-Star
Event is open for everyone and offers
everybody access to the qualification and the chance to
become the newcomer in the snowboard community.

From Riders – For Riders

With Frederik Karbermatten, Burton Global Team Rider and Marco Schwab, Pro
Rider and Star TV “Freestyle” Moderator, we were able to get two experts of the
Snowboarding Scene so that the contest is going to
be an absolute highlight. They know what it needs
to organize a contest and to fulfill the rider’s
expectations. Together they made a list of wellknown
international riders and friends and invited
them for the event. Saas-Fee is incredible happy to
welcome riders like Marko Grilc SLO, Jonas
Emery SUI, Tonton Holland SUI, Kazuhiro
Kokubo JPN, TJ Schneider CND, Chris Kröll
AUT, Friedl Kolar AUT, Steve Gruber AUT, Andy
Monsberger AUT, Sani Alibabic AUT, Hannes
Metzler AUT, Alessandro Boyens GER, Iker
Fernandes ESP, Morgan Le Faucheur FRA and
Gian Simmen SUI. Further Saas-Fee offers one of
the last chances to all riders’ newcomers or
professionals to upgrade their TTR tour results.

Set-up

SNICKERS Classic

Slope style jam sessions (70-100 Riders), Semi Final (40 Riders) and Super Final (12
Riders). The contest terrain in the “Längfluh” area below the Popcorn Plaza 2870
Meter a.s.l. is just perfect for a slope style and the planned kicker line of Frederik
Kalbermatten.

POPCORN Wallride

The Wallride forms the completing of the event on
Sunday. Riders compete at a wall of eight meters
high, which is one of the larger ones you can find
at a competition, already the third year. The
results of the Wallride are not part of the TTRranking,
however the overall winner of the
SNICKERS Classic & POPCORN Wallride wins
the title KING OF POPCORN, which includes a
surprising reward.

The perfect season end

Saas-Fee offers the best conditions to become the destination for all snowboarders
from Switzerland and the entire Europe, because here you’ll find the best snow
conditions of the Alps in April due to it’s hight.

For a perfect season end a kick ass party program is obligatory. Scott Sullivan is
coming just for the event from the States to heat up the party locations together with
the A.F. Band from the Valais / CH. Several good DJ’s create the right atmosphere in
the most popular bars of the Alps, namely the Popcorn Bar and the Living Room Bar.
