New Name, new Logo, new website: www.worldsnowboardtour.com
Scuol, Switzerland, July 3, 2012 – With the start of the 2012-2013 snowboarding season the TTR World Snowboard Tour becomes the World Snowboard Tour, as announced by TTR Pro Snowboarding today.

TTR Pro Snowboarding’s president Reto Lamm: ‘The new name World Snowboard Tour lets us send the clear signal that there’s only one legitimate Snowboard Tour on the planet.

We are the home base for legendary contests like Air& Style, Burton Open competitions, Arctic Challenge or O’Neill Evolution. An increasing number of contests around the world want to become part of our tour. All this is determined on the basic core values of the sport, that still remain the foundation of TTR Pro Snowboarding and its products. Our values creativity, fun, progression, freedom and friendship are the pillars TTR and the World Snowboard Tour have built their acceptance and popularity on.’
TTR Managing Director Alex Doerr: ‘Renaming the World Snowboard Tour enables us to create a better platform to market our Tour. This includes a new logo and website, that with a high level of interactivity, shapes new and contemporary course into the World of Freestyle Snowboarding.’
