Sweden’s biggest snowboard competition will now also be a stop on the WST, the number 1 world tour of snowboarding. Ale Invite is thereby confirmed internationally as one of the big tour stops this year. The riders' points from the Ale Invite will also affect their world ranking position. So brace yourselves for even bigger airs and tricks on 28th February when 20 of the best riders in the world have yet another incentive to perform at their best.
And the rider list is pretty much all time. Check out the bad boys who're already confirmed to be sending it: Halldor Helgason, Seb Toutant, Max Parrot, Peetu Piiroinen, Seppe Smits, Roope Tonteri, Marko Grilc, Svn Thorgren, Max Buri, Kevin Bäckström, Tor Lundström, Ethan Morgan...
If you are unable to make it and see the competition live and on the big screen in Alebacken, 20km from Gothenburg, don´t worry. Through our media partners we will send out a live stream so you can follow the whole competition online. But of course, nothing beats the live experience, so if you are able to get here, this is guaranteed not to miss.
Oh yeah, did we mention it´s free entrance to the event?
New activities for children
Ale Invite is an event for the whole family with activities for all ages. At Christmas it became clear that Burton Riglet Park will be on site throughout the whole day where all 2-6 year olds have the chance to try snowboarding for the first time. For slightly older children, we will build a miniature of the big jump in the kids hill so do not forget to bring your kids’ skis and boards Feb 28th. More info about the competition, concert times, parking and how to get here with public transport, will be on our website later on.
Will you also be there?
Attend our Facebook event and invite your friends who you think would like to take part in this one day free entrance festival. We are not far from 1200 attending in the event, but we hope and believe that it could be as much as 5,000 visitors this first year. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram and keep updated on new artist releases and riders’ preparations for Ale Invite.
