The Sno!zone at Castleford is planning to hold a big ol’ showdown contest on May 15th, gathering as many of the UK’s pro and amateur snowboarding talents together under their cold metal roof as possible. The Sno!down comp, which is open to everyone, is being billed as the biggest and best freestyle event of the indoor competition calendar.
Here’s what the peeps at Castleford had to say: “Sno!zone Castleford are renowned for building the best parks so its about time we threw the best competition in the UK. This will give riders a chance to show off what they have learnt over the winter season. The set up will be a unique Cas-Vegas park with a special secret feature. There will be an advanced line and a rookie line with a variety of rails, boxes and jumps, offering everyone something to play on.
The night will give all riders the chance to push themselves and bag some prizes. It will give un-sponsored riders the time to shine as well as the pros, with prizes going out to the best males and females, best un-sponsored riders, rider of the night and many more. We will also be throwing out lots of spot prizes on the night.
The Sno!down is a Slopestyle event as a jam format with a 1 run Sno!down Throw down (just for fun and to bag a special prize). The jam format will give riders the chance to showcase a variety of tricks and push themselves to the limit. The tunes will be loud so you can get your grove on on the hill, and then at 10pm it will be time to get your party shoes on for the after party in 50fifty with a DJ and special drinks offers.”
The evening’s comp will cost you £25 to enter, but Castleford are offering special discounts for Friday night passes when pre-registering.
