With just under a week to go Stylewars is preparing to hit Falls Creek
Victoria for the 10th anniversary event. With $25,000 in cash and prizes
to be won riders from as far as The Netherlands and Norway will join
the cream of the crop from Australia and New Zealand with three
days on hill and one night under lights of world class snowboarding.
The names to watch in the slopestyle will be Gjermund Braaten (NOR)
who is currently in 5th position on the world tour, Clint Allan (AUS),
Jye Kearney (AUS) Nick Brown (NZ), Tor Lundstrom (SWE) and the young
Big Air Champ Max Buri (CH). In 28 Stairs the one to watch will be
Cees Wille (NED) in a stand out field of street rail competitors.
Sunday will be a practice day. Monday will kick off the action in
the park with qualification and warm up session from 9 – 10.30
followed by Stylewars jam format slopestyle from 11 – 1pm. This
will be repeated on both Tuesday and Wednesday weather permitting
and the event will close with the 28 Stair rail jam, event presentation
and closing party in the Village Bowl.

[The Bledisnow Cup between Australia and New Zealand has been
cancelled due to the dwindling New Zealand team numbers after the
record snow falls in the South Island. The $5000 allocated to this has
gone into the creation of second and third places in the slopestyle
and Top Aussie in 28 Stairs.]
