Vans' Hi-Standard Series Kicks Off Summer at High Cascade June 20

Style is Everything, Nothing Over a 540


Vans' expressive snowboarding contest, the Hi-Standard series will hit High Cascade Summer Camp in Timberline, OR on June 20. Proudly celebrating 20 years in snowboarding this year, Vans is excited to bring you the third US contest in a series devoted to the classic days of snowboarding when style was everything. Featuring over $3K in prize money and "Best Trick" honors, riders will be judged solely on style and creativity for their best two runs. With nothing over a 540 allowed, only the most creative competitors will be considered for the top three billing.


The Vans Hi-Standard contest series upholds our heritage in snowboarding, bringing modern day competition back to the basics by awarding riders for individual style, creativity and self-expression. With strict guidelines against rotations over 540, the Hi-Standard challenges today's snowboarders to compete the Vans way, showcasing original style variations only true snowboarders can exhibit. Held internationally in Europe, Canada and the US, this unique series celebrates the spirit of snowboarding all over the world with one unifying message: style is everything.
