From January 16 to 19, 2014 The Mazda Snowboard Jamboree includes the FIS Snowboard World Cup circuit at Stoneham Mountain Resort and downtown Quebec City.
The annual event has been identified for the first year as a 5-Star level sanctioned event on the famous World Snowboard Tour (WST).
Freestyle wall to wall!
This edition of the Mazda Snowboard Jamboree presented by Videotron will host three official freestyle disciplines. This is the first time ever that the Jamboree offers a complete freestyle schedule with the best riders in the world to attract thousands of spectators.
This will be the last chance for many of the athletes from around the world to secure a spot on their respective Olympic Teams for Sochi, since Stoneham will host the two Olympic disciplines, half-pipe and slopestyle.
Snowboard Jamboree joins TTR World Snowboard Tour
In addition to its FIS (International Ski Federation) sanction for hosting the World Cup, the Snowboard Jamboree is now a sanctioned event on the World Snowboard Tour. Run and owned by TTR Pro Snowboarding, the World Snowboard Tour is the world’s largest series of freestyle snowboarding events.
The Snowboard Jamboree says it is very proud to join WST’s 2014 edition as a five stars event. The ranking of the events on the World Snowboard Tour calendar ranks from 1 to 6 level events and is determined on many different factors. To qualify as a first-time 5-Star event is a great testimony of the quality of the Snowboard Jamboree and race management.
