The world elite of freestyle will challenge the monster jump at the Olympic Arena Stockholm Stadion in Sweden from 10-11th November. Live acts, a rail arena, film premieres, a winter sport fair, after parties and a lot more – all of it for free. 25,000 tickets will be distributed for each day of this two-day-event.
The Nokia Snowboard FIS World Cup Big Air Tour, coming to Stockholm November 11th, initiated this huge event. The Big Air contest in Stockholm is the first out of six during 2006/2007 gathering the best riders of the planet.
A gigantic ramp is starting its construction this week thanks to 80 ton scaffolding and a massive amount of workers at the unique Olympic Arena of 1912. The ramp is about 100 metres long and 35 metres high. Count on huge air.
On Friday 10th November the Free Radicals latest ski movie Snowblind will have its premiere on the giant screens at the Stockholm Stadion just before the freeskiing finals of Peak Performance – King of Style. Later on the Free Radicals party continues at a venue in the city centre of Stockholm. An electronic theme will rule the ending party on Saturday 11th November with live acts, DJ’s and VJ’s.
“The combination of good music, action, life style, city, parties and contests should be a colourful inspiration for all of us waiting for snow and winter,” said organiser Ulf Mård.
