The Showcase Showdown, the longest running Canadian snowboard competition will be happening in Whistler March 14 & 15. Presented by Monster Energy, Burton, Vans, Oakley, Kokanee, Ride, Salomon, SkullCandy, Dakine, Sandbox, and Samsung, it's coming back bigger and better than ever.
The 17th annual Showcase Showdown is now, for the first time ever, a two-day event with over $40,000 in cash and prizes for riders over the two days.
Events will include both slopestyle and big air. Both pros and amateurs will compete in the events, with the top 3 male snowboarders in the Pro category each day also qualifying for the Shred Show during WSSF.
The Showcase Showdown will also be followed by a rail jam outside the GLC. Competitors can win a Samsung Tablet in this "Showoff" event.
