The World Snowboarding Championships will kick off its first ever jamboree in Oslo’s Winter Park this coming February. Here’s the schedule and how you can swap your coinage for tickets to the show…

The battle for four championship titles amongst the world’s best snowboarders will soon take place in Oslo Winter Park, Norway. In addition, Terje Håkonsen will challenge the bravest of the brave to break his world record for highest air in a quarterpipe (9,8 meters) in one of the world’s most famous sporting arenas, Holmenkollen. Tickets for these historical moments are now available.

Spectacular achievements on an international level, accompanied by music entertainment, predict the conditions worthy of a winter festival. 240 of the world’s best riders from 30 countries will compete for the four prestigious World Cup titles: slopestyle and halfpipe for men and women. This will go down in Oslo Winter Park (Wyller), which right now is making Europe’s largest halfpipe and a state of the art slopestyle course. The quarterpipe session in Holmenkollen ski jump arena Friday night kicks the weekend of the finals off to new levels of riding. World record holder Håkonsen intends to defend his title by riding himself and inspire the next generation to enter new heights.

Fair access to the qualifications combined with tough international competition and extremely high level make sure the true masters of snowboarding meet in the finals. The competitors carry out tricks and rotations in speeds up to 80 km/h, several meters into the air before they land on hard snow.
