If you are fully aware of the fact that the QParks Tour almost has a 10 years history, that it involves 7 stops in 3 countries and that it therefore is the largest independent contest series in Europe you don’t really need this introduction. Everyone else however, should carefully read it so it becomes clear what all of this is actually about: Freestyle. It’s all about freestyle. (Period)
And one important part of freestyle is contests where the community gathers, shreds together and bags some cash and one or another goodie. Sure, the most important part in freestyle remains creativity, fun and personal progression. However, if you feel like having your skills checked in a professional setting during a rad session with internationally experienced and professional judges on-site you can do so at various QParks Tour Stops. And if you might be in for some fine goodies by Amplifi, QParks and POW Gloves it sounds like one hell of a deal, right?
Compared to last year’s Tour season, some has changed: With the Rookie Battles in Alta Badia and Ehrwald, the QParks Tour doesn’t just feature two new resorts but also two new contest formats for rookies only.
On all Tour stops you can look forward to a full-scale, solid slopestyle setup with railtime, airtime and most importantly good times. Apart from that, beloved culinary classics such as the QParks-Tour-sausages, tea for free and Red Bull will remain in stock. Plus, most of the contests also stay free of entry fees. Also, all winners of each contest’s Best Trick Award will get the chance to win two surf camps for two including surf and yoga lessons as well as accommodation and food at the Free Spirit Hostel Ecuador.
In addition to sausage, goodies and cash, the winning snowboarders of the QParks Tour Stops also get points for the World Snowboard Points List, the World Rookie Rank and the Austrian Stops are part of the Austrian Cup Tour. The shredders from Styria might even become Styrian Champs as the Styrian Championships will be held at the Blue Tomato Plan P in Schladming.
All freeskiers can collect valuable points for the Freeski Austria Tour at the Austrian Tour Stops and the stops in Tyrol are good for TSV-Cup points. And the Styrian riders will compete for the Styrian championships title at the Blue Tomato Plan P in Schladming.
