The King of S.N.O.W. competition is back for another year, this time sponsored by Horsefeathers. Check out the Horsefeathers team riders throwing down the gauntlet to all those armed with a snowboard and video camera/phone!
The competition is run in the same style as SKATE, whereby a trick is first set and then copied by following riders with each each rider losing a life/letter. In King of S.N.O.W. each rider starts with 4 lives (S=1 life, N=1 life etc...) and these are lost each time the rider doesn't upload a video of them doing the required trick. But that's not all, make sure to style out the tricks as much as possible and do them over the biggest obstacle you dare as once your video is up on the website, viewers can then rate how good it is with prizes available for the top rated.
Tricks get progressively harder, the last rounds requiring the slickest of skills and ninja like reflexes to land, this all culminates with the top 10 ranking riders being invited to Planai, Austria (including free accommodation, catering and lift tickets) to compete in a super final where the winner receives $5000 and worldwide coverage. For a full list of rules check out the King of S.N.O.W. website.
