QPARKS TOUR FACTS

The QParks Tour is an international freestyle tour which will stop at selected snowparks in Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland throughout the whole winter season. All contests are open for snowboarders and freeskiers in the categories men, women and rookies. The unique thing about the tour: the participation at every stop is FOR FREE!

Especially for aspiring young riders, the QParks Tour offers a unique chance to shred themselves into the spotlight of the scene under professional contest conditions. The riders get to battle themselves with like-minded people, learn new tricks and establish new contacts with insiders of the freestyle scene. But also the audience shouldn't miss these events as most of the stops not only stand for breathtaking contest action but also offer an exquisite entertainment program with BBQ, DJ-Sounds and public film and photo sessions.

In the spring, the tour reaches its climax at the QParks Tour Finale. The best 30 of each category are qualified for the finals and thus up in the final battle for the QParks Tour Crown.

NEW POINTS SYSTEM

A newly revised points system will be introduced this season. Instead of the first ten, all riders up to the 30th place can now score precious points for the QParks Tour. The exact awarding of points, which will also be implemented at the O'Neill Pleasure Jam powered by Opel, can be found here! At the grand finale, the points will be tripled as usual – so everybody still has the chance to mix up the final ranking and secure the overall tour victory.
