Snowboard Jamboree ready for its 2015 edition, February 19 to 22
For the second year in a row, Snowboard Jamboree presented by Mazda in collaboration with Vidéotron Mobile returns with a 100% freestyle edition, from February 19 to 22, 2015. Around 200 athletes from more than twenty countries will be vying for a podium finish at the FIS Big Air, Slopestyle, and Half-Pipe World Cups over the course of a long weekend in Québec City and at Stoneham Mountain Resort. Stairsmasters and its video formula also return, featuring some of the best urban boarders the world has to offer… Videos chosen for the last edition were viewed almost 150,000 times all around the world!
Big Air now open to women!
For the very first time in the discipline’s history, the Big Air World Cup will be open to women at Snowboard Jamboree. Last year, with FIS approval, the organizing committee asked women boarders to strut their stuff during a demonstration period, but the Sochi Olympic Games and bad weather meant they were unable to. FIS is keen to try again in 2015, this time for an official World Cup, with a first stop in Istanbul on December 20, 2014. All of which means that boarders of both sexes will be wowing the crowds at Îlot Fleurie on February 20.

And visitors will have plenty of other activities to enjoy as athletes get some well-deserved rest. With amateur comps, free sessions with a trainer, and snowboarding lessons at the Mountain in the City at Îlot Fleurie, younger boarders will get an adrenalin rush of their own in front of family and friends. Not the mention the bustling exhibition zones in Québec City and at Stoneham.
