Vans Hi-Standard Snow Series World Tour Returns

Print Friendly and PDF

Vans kicks off 2017 with the return of the Vans Hi-Standard Series, an international all-ages contest inviting snowboarders to showcase true style and expression in an exciting open-jam format. With a new stop in Switzerland and a grand finale in California, the Vans Hi-Standard global series will be touring across the US, Canada, Switzerland, Korea, and France. The inclusive snowboard jam will feature an original big air jam format where riders are judged by individual style only, with no rotations over 720 permitted. For the grand finale, Vans will bring a new, non-traditional feature into the fold by creating a unique custom-spec course, where riders are encouraged to push the boundaries of their creative expression.

Beginning January 14 at Mount St-Louis, Ontario Canada, and Phoenix Park, Gangwon Korea, riders will compete in a unique exhibition of style. Offering free registration, lift tickets and food, the Hi-Standard Series is will award over $50K in cash and prizes and challenge riders to push their imaginations with innovative tricks.  The “Van Doren Rail Best Trick” will grant cash on the spot for the most creative maneuvers while Vans rewards the “Most Improved Rider,” “Worst Bail,” and names a deserving MVP on each stop of the tour. With no spins over a 720 allowed, only the most inventive competitors will be considered for the billing.

When talking about individual style, Vans Snow team rider Blake Paul states, “It’s not about what you do, it’s how you do it.”

In addition to the contest, Vans is thrilled to host the House of Vans workshops for non-competitors, giving spectators and family members a pair of their very own Vans to customize alongside an artist from each city. Fans and competitors can also expect to see familiar faces from the global Vans Snow team throughout the tour. Now is your chance to stand out—style is everything!
