Saas Fee Hosts Season’s Hottest Freestyle Snowboard Events

The world’s best Freestyle Snowboard Action will take place in Saas-Fee, from 19-22 April, 2007. Saas-Fee has the honour of presenting one of the last stops of the unique Ticket to Ride Snowboard World Tour 06/07. Frederik Kalbermatten and Marco Schwab will be hosting a kick-ass party program to ensure the Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride is going to be the perfect end of the season in the Swiss Alps.

Ride with your Idol

A TTR 3-Star slopestyle competition is taking place for the first time in Saas-Fee. It’s an exclusive opportunity for talented
snowboarders to compete against their idols and battle it out against 15 invited snowboard pros for the $10,000 prize money! The TTR 3-Star
event is open to everyone and offers everybody access to the qualification and the chance to
become the newcomer in the snowboard community.

From Riders – For Riders

With Frederik Karbermatten, Burton Global Team Rider and Marco Schwab, Pro Rider and Star TV “Freestyle” Moderator, these two experts of the
Snowboarding Scene should ensure that the contest is going to
be an absolute highlight. They know what it needs
to organize a contest and to fulfill the rider’s
expectations. Together they made a list of well known
international riders and friends and invited
them for the event. Saas-Fee is incredibly happy to
welcome riders like Marko Grilc SLO, Jonas
Emery SUI, Tonton Holland SUI, Kazuhiro
Kokubo JPN, TJ Schneider CND, Chris Kröll
AUT, Friedl Kolar AUT, Steve Gruber AUT, Andy
Monsberger AUT, Sani Alibabic AUT, Hannes
Metzler AUT, Alessandro Boyens GER, Iker
Fernandes ESP, Morgan Le Faucheur FRA and
Gian Simmen SUI. In addition, this Saas-Fee event offers one of
the last chances for all riders – newcomers or
professionals – to upgrade their TTR tour results.

Popcorn Wallride

The Wallride forms the final event on
Sunday. Riders will compete on an 8-metre high wall – one of the largest you’ll find
at a competition. The
results of the Wallride are not part of the TTR ranking,
however the overall winner of the
Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride wins
the title King of Popcorn, which includes a
surprising reward!

The perfect season end

Saas-Fee offers the best conditions to become the destination for all snowboarders
from Switzerland and the entire Europe, because you’ll find the best snow
conditions of the Alps in April due to it’s height.

For a perfect season end, a kick-ass party program is obligatory. Scott Sullivan is
coming just for the event from the States to heat up the party locations together with
the A.F. Band from the Valais / CH. Several good DJs will create the right atmosphere in
the most popular bars of the Alps, namely the Popcorn Bar and the Living Room Bar.
