For the third time, Ramundberget Ski Resort in Sweden is hosting “Piststilen by Rip Curl presented by Skullcandy”.
The event will take place 27/4 – 2/5, and will this year be part of the TTR world snowboarding tour with a 3-star status and USD 18.000 in prize money.
“Piststilen” means slopestyle in Swedish, and the riders will compete in a massive slopestyle course designed by Jonas Lodin and Krister Persson, which both have been working with events such as The Battle, TTR 3-Star Rip Curl Seafun Invitational and Wiig Invitational to name a few.
The event will be open for both women and men. The women will compete for USD 3.000,- and the men will compete for USD 15.000. This year there is going to be an open qualification that has 70 spots in the men’s competition and 30 spots in the women’s competition. The best riders will advance to the semifinals and compete for the money against 30 invited riders.
The event isn’t all about the competition; it is also a festival styled end of season event with loads of parties, bands and happenings! Several bands and DJs are already confirmed, such as Sonic Syndicate (SWE), Looptroop Rockers (SWE), Urban Knights (UK), NTRL TLNT (SWE) and DJ Kid Sid (SWE).
