It’s ON! For the last 2 years I have been thinking about organizing my own event, but I haven’t quite had the time, resources and back-up until now. 2-4 april in the Swedish resort Storlien (40 minutes from Åre), it’s finally happening, The Trick Bag Challenge 2012. Being the first year, we are focusing on a small-scale event, as a way to test out how everything works, then next year the plan is to go international. The idea is simple – to crown the most well-rounded jump and rail skier out there! The concept in short:
-10 skiers qualify to finals, from a traditional slopestyle contest where the best out of 3 runs count.
-7 runs each on a rail jam setup, every different trick counts, 0.1-10.0 points per run.
-7 runs each on a big air jump, every different trick counts, 0.1-10.0 points per run.
-maximum score 140 points.
If you want to be a part of TBC2012 please submit a 1 minute video before march 20th, showcasing your best tricks on jumps and rails, and remember; innovation and diversity counts! Link to video qualifier (swedish). The top 10 videos selected by a jury will receive free lodging, food and lift tickets during the event, and after that invites will be sent out to deserving videos depending on how many spots we can fit.
The contest window is 3 days which hopefully will allow everyone involved to ski as much as they want, session the course, and get as much footage together for edits that will drop continously.
Stay tuned for more info to come shortly, and make sure to join our facebook group!
