For seven years the QParks Snowboard Tour has been paving the way for ambitious shred talents from the alpine area to start their pro careers. Owing to the professional & international judges and an impressive cash price of a total of 40.000 €, the biggest amateur contest series of the Alps is the perfect introduction to the world of competition. What’s more, the catering for the riders is FREE from this season onwards. There’s also news on the brand-new QParks Snowboard Tour website, the fresh new look makes the free registration even easier.
Contests for Riders – For 7 Years
With contests in Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, the QParks Snowboard Tour remains the biggest ongoing freestyle amateur contest series of the entire alpine area in 2016/17. One of its main goals is supporting young talent. Competitors in the categories men, women and groms are looking forward to a top-notch setup perfect for each skill level and plenty of cool goodies and cash prizes from Amplifi, QParks and Pinetime Clothing. All the action will make riders hungry and that’s why all of the riders will enjoy free food and drinks at each tour stop.
Rankings, Cups & Points
The loyalty of the competitors will be rewarded once again: Apart from the essential QParks Snowboard Tour points, there’s also the chance to collect points for the WSPL Ranking of the World Snowboard Tour and the World Rookie Rank. Plus, the stops in Austria are part of the Austria Cup.
