This year’s season is set to end in spectacular fashion with the Snickers Classic and Popcorn Wallride in the Swiss resort of Saas-Fee from 19th – 22nd April.
This will be one of the final stops of the TTR snowboard world tour and with hosts Frederik Kalbermatten and Marco Schwab it looks set to be an excellent weekend.
For the third year running riders will compete for the prize of “King of Popcorn” over four days in the purpose built park in the glacier town. Workers are putting the final touches to the Slopestyle course and the massive 8m high wall is almost ready for its first attempt.
Riders will be have the unique opportunity to compete against Gian Simmen and Jonas Emery who will be making an appearance along with a host of other top riders hoping to end the season on a high.
To round off a good day’s riding head to the Popcorn Bar or the Living Room Bar where live music from punk rockers A.F and DJ Scott Sullivan will continue the party into the night.
Registration for the comp begins on today at 5pm with the awards ceremony taking place on Sunday night. Pre-sale tickets are going fast so get involved quick.
