Vashon, WA—After Ride’s J.J. Thomas took the Icer Air Title in 2005, Ride Snowboards is thrilled to be the new, exclusive snowboard sponsor of the 2006 Esurance Icer Air taking place at AT&T Park located on San Francisco’s waterfront Embarcadero. Home to the San Francisco Giants, this will be the first-ever stadium Big Air Ski and Snowboard Competition to be held in the United States. Twenty accomplished athletes will descend a 100-foot high ramp on Saturday, November 4, 2006 covered with over 200 tons of snow to compete for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes, including a 2007 Toyota 4Runner.
In addition to the men’s and women’s Big Air, there will be BMX and Skate Vert exhibitions, a full consumer expo in conjunction with the San Francisco Ski and Snowboard Festival featuring the best gear from industry leaders including Ride Snowboards, and an on-site snowboard sale in conjunction with Lombardi Sports with the latest gear marked up to 50% off. Every major resort from the Lake Tahoe area will also be on hand with special promotions for Icer Air attendees. And last but certainly not least, get ready for Jurassic 5, Ladytron and Chaingarden, performing throughout the day. Needless to say, this is going to be BIG!
