World Snowboarding Championships To Be Staged For First Time Since 1999 (04-Jul-11)

The TTR and WSF World Snowboarding Championships

The TTR and WSF World Snowboarding Championships will be staged in Oslo next winter – it’s the first time for 13 years that there’s been a World Championships (the last ones were in 1999) and it will be the first championship for slopestyle ever.

“That the international snowboard community has agreed upon assigning World Championships 2012 to Oslo, is a great vote of confidence, both to the Norwegian snowboard community, to Oslo as a host city and to the job we have put into this project,” commented the president of the Norwegian Snowboard Association, Cecilia Flatum.

The events will be staged between 11th – 20th February at Oslo Vinterpark, Tryvann ski resort, and include Slopestyle, Halfpipe and Quarterpipe competitions. 240 participants are expected to compete from 35 nations.

Norway has achieved a great deal of experience in arranging such events after ten years of The Arctic Challenge (TAC).

“With the World Championships on our home field are we not only rewarded for hard work, but the entire snowboard world receives a common symbol to link us together. This is when the fun starts!” said Henning Andersen, the general manager of TAC.
