World Snowboard Day, 9th edition - Save the date!

Summer has given way to autumn, and while the snow starts to gradually settle on the mountain tops, World Snowboard Day is fast approaching, with a mind-blowing experience in store for everyone for this 9th edition. The concept? Promote the sport and its unique subculture by providing the general public with the opportunity to try a variety of activities for free. When? December 21, 2014 Where? Around the world, in over 30 countries! As usual, you will find a whole host of activities during the event: contests, beginner snowboard lessons, gear tests, demos, meet-and-greets with professional riders, drinks, concerts, video contests, and much, much more. This year once again, World Snowboard Day is supported by an exceptional ambassador: Mr. Régis Rolland! He has seen snowboarding evolve over the years, and his expertise greatly contributed to its development. As a brand, association, rider, or ski resort you can become a World Snowboard Day organizer and create, for free, your very own event that fits with your needs and objectives.
