Nike’s Snake & Hammers Banked Slopestyle

Nike's Snake & Hammers Banked Slopestyle

From 24 to 26 March 2013 the Snake & Hammers Banked Slopestyle at Silvretta Montafon is going down. Riding an innovative contest course, AMs , local matadors, snowboard legends and pros together take up the challenge of timekeeping and obstacle judging. The snowboarders with the best all-around riding skills get the chance to win $10,000 prize money.

Alright so this one is tricky ..on one hand we get another Hot Fuzz from the Swoosh that we’re always looking somehow skeptical at and at the same time we finally get more and more events, that require each time more overall snowboarding skills and push creativity on the contest circus, which has been critisized since a bunch of years now. Hands down: This event really looks to be one dope ass contest, as it combines the turns of a traditional Banked Slalom with the features of a Slopestyle event.

Next to smaller, sharp turns and long banks the riders are awaited by hips, kickers and jib obstacles. A rider´s overall goal is to „snake“ down as fast as they can while throwing out their best tricks. Everyone is invited to join that contest, wherefore motivated amateurs shred together with pros and experienced snowboard legends.
