Rozy Chicken Jam Europe: Slopestyle in Saalbach Hinterglemm

In 2010, the Roxy Chicken Jam presents itself with a new location and an extended supporting programme. The seventh edition of the world’s biggest female snowboard competition will take place from the 08th to the 10th of January 2010 at the Nightpark Saalbach Hinterglemm. Apart from the snowboarders’ top performances, parties and live acts like Bunny Lake and the Wax Wreckaz will provide a great atmosphere at Saalbach Hinterglemm!

The move of the Roxy Chicken Jam to Saalbach Hinterglemm will bring the world’s best female snowboarders closer to their fans: the Nightpark is only 200 meters away from the village centre. Thus, the spectacular contest will attract more spectators than ever before. The Nightpark at Unterschwarzachlift will be shaped according to the demands of the world’s best snowboarders. Two jib sets at the beginning and the end of the course and a triple kicker line at the middle of the park will give the slopestyle artists the opportunity to show their best tricks and moves on many varied obstacles and prove their creativity and style at the fight for the 50,000 prize-purse.

The Roxy Chicken Jams in Europe in early wintertime and at Mammoth, USA, at the end of the season both are 6-star events and the biggest and most important competitions of the TTR Women’s World Snowboard Tour – while the event at Saalbach Hinterglemm sets the course for a successful season, the female TTR World Tour Winner will be crowned at the Roxy Chicken Jam USA. With 1,000 points for the overall ranking respectively, the winners can distance themselves from their competitors. At both events, the snow park and the event format are specially tuned to the girls’ demands, and the focus will be 100% directed on them. All in all, this leads to stronger performances, and has made these events the benchmark measuring the progression of women snowboarding as well as being an avenue for unknown riders to make their mark.

Top riders like the TTR world champion 2006, Cheryl Maas (NED), the TTR world champion 2007, Torah Bright (AUS), the TTR world champion 2008, Jamie Anderson (USA) or stars like Kjersti Buaas Oestgaard (NOR), Jenny Jones (GBR), Lisa Filzmoser (AUT), Claudia Fliri (AUT), Silvia Mittermueller and Lisa Wiik (NOR) have been taking part in the previous Roxy Chicken Jams and will for sure not miss the chance to experience the event at the new location!

And where there are snowboarders, the party’s not far away: live acts and DJ sets will make the Roxy Chicken Jam a big freestyle festival. At Saturday evening, Innsbruck’s notorious DJ crew, the Way Wreckaz, will make the audience and the snowboarders bounce at the Reiterkogel valley station. After the award ceremony, the electro underground collective Bunny Lake will put the pedal to the medal – the band from Vienna has won this year’s Amadeus Award in the electronic/dance category and guarantees après snowboarding of the most danceable kind! Concludingly, an after show party will round off the weekend.
