Talma, Finland March 3rd
Next week sees the European stop of Vans Hi Standard Series visit the infamous resort of Talma, Finland. The stop will bring all-ages together showcasing creative expression in a fun open-jam format. Featuring a big air session where participants are judged solely on their individual style with no inverts or spins over 720 allowed, the MVP will win an all-expenses paid trip to the grand finale show at Sierra-at-Tahoe for a chance to snowboard with the Vans snow team and battle it out for the 2018 Vans Hi-Standard Series MVP series title.
Vans Hi-Standard Series provides free registration for the event here, plus a limited number of lift tickets and lunch vouchers to all participants. With more than €2500 in cash and prizes up for grabs, this all-inclusive snowboard event challenges riders to push the limits with creative tricks while keeping in mind that “style is everything.” The “Van Doren Rail Best Trick” will handout cash on the spot for most innovative maneuvers while Vans rewards the “Most Improved Rider,” “Worst Bail,” and crowns an MVP on each stop of the tour. With no rotations over a 720 permitted, only the most creative competitor with pure style and originality will be awarded with the MVP title.
