Dates for your UK diary

The Burton High5 Tour will be back at the end of September, touring the UK snowdomes throughout the autumn in search of the UK's best park crew.

Like last year the comp is an open jam slopestyle with a practice, qualifiers and a “two run, best run counts” final. The categories will be split into kid’s boys/girls, youth boys/girls and senior mens/womens with a ton of prizes and swag will be up for grabs for the top three winners in each.

The battle won’t just be out on the slope but behind the scenes, as the country's top shapers will be going head to head to build the best park with the given obstacles. They will be in with the chance to win the coveted Golden Shovel Award along with a limited edition package from Burton Snowboards for the winning 5 shapers and the title of “Best Park In Britain”. This will be a rider judged element to the contest and all competitors (at the end of the night) will give their marks out of 5 for the following criteria:

Fun | Creativity | Experience | Rideability | Stoke

Every fridge in the UK is keen to get their hands on the title of “Best Park In Britain” and the dates are as follows:


So if you enjoyed it last year and fancy helping your local fridge win some new toys then get yourself to one of the above stops. This is a great series of comps that’s open to all ages and abilities and offers fantastic opportunity to progress over the tour.

How to get rid of nerves?

Tignes Spirit rider Katie Blundell recently did amazingly to come third at the Perisher Slopestyle but could do with a few tips on how to handle her nerves for future competitions.  Up against some big name pros, no wonder she was feeling a little jittery!

Not showing too many nerves at the this year's Brits!

Summer Snow in Tignes..

Check out our blog, facebook and twitter pages to see pictures of the snow that fell in Tignes last week. Mid-summer crazy. Made for good conditions up on the glacier though!

Trailer - The Art of Flight

The Art of Flight (AKA the most eagerly awaited snowboard film of, like, ever) is Travis Rice and Curt Morgan‘s follow-up to their rulebook re-writing movie from a couple of seasons back, That’s It, That’s All.

After giving us a couple of months to scrape our jaws off the floor following the release of The Art of Flight’s first teaser they’ve now dropped the ‘Metal’ teaser to blow our minds once more.

Roll on September 7th!
