Estonia’s biggest event of snowboarding and freestyle-skiing waits for the best riders at Kiviõli, 12.-14th February 2016. For the second year, we are officially in World Snowboard Tour calendar as a National level event, also Estonian snowboard and freestyle-skiing championships will be held (slopestyle). The best Estonian riders will show their skills, including young world famous skier Kelly Sildaru (13 years old), who won the Dew Tour in December 2015 and also SFR Freestyle Ski Tour in January 2016 @Val Thorens, France.
The competition is more popular for Nordic and Baltic riders. Most of our foreign riders come from Finland and Latvia, right now we also have one rider from Korea. The best Estonian snowboarders will be included – Team Surfhouse (EST) first class riders Mario Visnap, Marko Vilumaa, Sulev Paalo, Priidik Vesi, Siim Aunison; also Madis Bachmann (Hawaii Express Team), freestyle-skiers Edgars Lansmanis (LAT) and Kristian Eding (Team Surfhouse, EST), Karl Pääru (Extreme Sport, EST).
Although the season kicked off pretty late here in Estonia (in the beginning of January 2016), the snowpark building in Kiviõli is in progress and it should be opened as soon as possible. The main sponsor of Estonian Open Slopestyle 2016 is Starman.
We hope to see many people attending to Estonian Open Slopestyle, supporting the riders and spending some quality time outside. In those 3 days all the other slopes (except snowpark) of Kiviõli Ski Resort will be available for everyone. We also have DJ performances in Friday and Saturday evenings.
