“Our goal is to give people a week by week look at what goes down during Tailgate Alaska. In addition, we want to show what riding in AK is really like, between all of the epic shots in traditional snowboarding videos."

This year marks the seventh Tailgate Alaska (running from March 28- April 6, 2014) and tickets are available now online. With 10 countries, six provinces and 15 states already representing, the event is the annual pilgrimage of dedicated recreational riders, professional athletes and the industry to ride the world’s best mountains and deepest snow on the planet.

Tickets have been selling rapidly and are expected to sell out shortly. Among other benefits, Tailgate Alaska offers multiple on-site rescue teams and free daily snow science classes. This year Tailgate Alaska will add nightly seminars given by industry veterans and snow safety experts, who will share their experience with participants of the event.
