QParks Tour is going down this season!


It was back in 2003 when the first contest forged by the QParks founding fathers swept across the alps. We held the first Pleasure Jam up at Dachstein glacier and all the riders were stoked. For many years to come, the unique thing about the Pleasure Jam was that – through qualification – also rookie snowboarders were given the chance to compete against international superstars and some of them quickly made their leap onto the global stage. However, as big as some of their names have become, as little was the number of those who made it into the finals.

So in 2010 we finally decided it was time to launch the QParks Tour as the biggest amateur contest series in the Alps. Not anymore just for the sideway standers, but also for freeskiers rocking our setups with their twin tips. To guarantee constant conditions and quality setups, the Tour has always and exclusively been held in QParks. Participation still is free, there’s also free catering and international and certified judges cater for fair rankings. 

And it was a huge success. As of today, a community of 500 riders out of 15 nationalities will jump and slide down 9 different QParks in 4 countries – and their number is growing every winter.

We have all the dates for the upcoming contest season and also crafted a little teaser to get you pumped! All info here
