Mt. Seymour will once again host the Vans Hi-Standard Snow Series World Tour, which will circle the globe and stop in North Vancouver for one day only on March 10th.
Vans Hi-Standard Snow Series World Tour at Mt. Seymour
Vans is thrilled to announce the return of the 2018 Vans Hi-Standard Series, Vans’ annual international snowboard event. The tour will visit Canada, China, South Korea, Finland, and the US, bringing this all-ages snow series around the world to invite riders to showcase 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, regional MVPs 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.
When the world tour hits Mt. Seymour on March 10th, all participants will get free registration, lift tickets and lunch vouchers. Register as a rider online today! There are only 45 spots available for online preregistration and the rest on site the morning of the event. There is a limit of 90 riders total.
With more than $50K 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.
