Monster Energy will be bringing Monster Boarderstyle, a high energy, high impact spectacle of music, action, and energy to SilverStar Mountain on March 10th and 11th.

Four riders at a time in a head-to-head boardercross-style race integrated with big slopestyle terrain features. Expect a unique course for each stop consisting of jibs, jumps, berms, rollers, pond-skims, spines, step-ups, DJ’s, high energy and great times.

With three event stops the one-of-a-kind snowboard contest conceptualised by Monster Energy Canada is charging through British Columbia. The tour kicks off at SilverStar Mountain Resort, March 10th & 11th. Followed by Fernie Alpine Resort, and concluding at the finals in the Bethlehem of Boarderstyle, Whistler Blackcomb.

The snowboard-only event consists of a Men’s and Women’s Open category. Every stop of the Monster Energy Boarderstyle Tour is free to enter and open to all competent riding abilities.  On top of cash prizing, the winners of the SilverStar and Fernie events will receive invites (including transportation and accommodation) to compete in the final event at Whistler Blackcomb.

Watching the chaos or competing in it is only half the fun. Monster Energy won’t just show up, they’ll be bringing the party. Each Boarderstyle stop guarantees a legendary after party. Monster DJ’s, DJ Illo and Juice will be DJing at The Red Antler on the night of the 11th in a silent disco style event.

About Monster Energy Boarderstyle
Entering its 7th year, Monster Energy Boarderstyle has gone from being an experimental event to a legitimate tour poised to make its greatest impression to date.

Boarderstyle: [also see: fast-freestyle] A hybrid boardercross, slopestyle, obstacle course race where 4 riders run the gauntlet simultaneously. A table-top jump awaits racers at the finish line. On this feature, it is mandatory to perform a full rotation trick (360 spin, flip, or greater). Riders will place in the order they cross the finish line. UNLESS! The rider placing behind performed a superior trick. Judged on difficulty, style, and execution. Judges then have the power to reverse the placing order of the riders in contention. Dreams can be shattered, glory can be stolen.
A tournament style bracket system has the top 2 placing riders from each round advancing onto the next until there is a 4 rider final race for the prize money.

What to expect: A unique course for each stop consisting of jibs, jumps, berms, rollers, pond-skims, spines, step-ups, DJ’s, high energy and great times.
