This year it's Lucky Thirteen for the Freestyle CH contest, so fingers crossed for plenty of sun, snow and sexy times.

While we have your attention, check out our Gallery of Burrows' black & whites from last year's event here.

The event kicks off on the 21st of September on Zurich’s picturesque Landiwiese and with an all-star cast of snowboarders, skaters, FMXers and freeskiers, the contest promises to be a banger.

As well as the action there will be a host of parties to keep you all rocking through the night and the event organizers have two bands lined up for the weekend – the Swedish skate punk rockers Millencolin and the Swiss rapper Gimma (loads of gold!).

Tickets for the event can be pre-purchased online at starticket.ch or the official event site freestyle.ch. If you are buying tickets at the entrance there will be a surcharge of CHF 5, so beg, borrow or steal a credit card now and get yourself a ticket for the kick off event of the 07/08 season of snowboarding.
