Waxed up : Gangs of Gloucester is a new idea for a slopestyle competition, The format is a four person team that can be made up of a mixture of skiers and snowboarders. The slope will have two lines an easy line and a hard line consisting of jump and jib features which the teams will hit in a train one after another. The best choreographed team wins the contest. The contest is open to everybody in the UK. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of something new and exciting that has the potential to grow into a series of contests all over the UK.

There will be a snowboard test and demo day with many top brands such as Lib Tech, GNU and Bataleon, as well as a BBQ, bar and loads of prizes!
