Event Guideline

It's my first season on the team, what events should I look at doing?

The easiest way to break down events to an understandable format, is via Terrain Size and cost.  

There are a number of smaller, local events that take place at resorts in the GTA.  The following events will all have smaller terrain options for most riders and don't have a lot of structure (other than the provincial championships).  If you are riding and performing in the Junkyard Terrain Park, these events will be a good place to start.

 

Local Events for first year program members (Beginner Program members will have other options that have not been released yet)

These events are suitable for those who are riding in M sized terrain.

Vans Hi-Standard - (Some features may be small enough) Loose rules, cash handouts for individual tricks and overall winners

Send it for Sarah - Full ride day with activities and coaching from Roxy team riders

Del Boca Vista - Fun, jam style day with multiple activities on and off snowboard.

These events will include bigger Jump features, side entry rails and gaps and are suitable for team members who are riding in L sized terrain.
