From 24 to 26 March 2013 the “Snake & Hammers” banked slopestyle at Silvretta Montafon – Austria is going to be a blast.
Riding an innovative contest course amateurs, local heroes, snowboard legends and pros together take up the challenge of timekeeping and obstacle judging.

The snowboarders with the best all-around riding skills get the chance to win $10,000 prize money.

Nike Snowboarding presents “Snake & Hammers” – a unique snowboarding competition designed to test a snowboarder ́s best all-around riding skills. The course combines the turns of traditional banked slalom with the features of a slopestyle event. Next to smaller, sharp turns and long banks the riders are awaited by hips, kickers and jib obstacles. A rider ́s overall goal is to “snake” down as fast as they can while dropping their best “hammers”.

Everyone is invited to take part wherefore motivated amateurs shred together with pros and experienced snowboard legends. A contest has rarely become that exciting and funny at the same time – because only riders who really have a high level of board control and come out on top of this interesting starting field win a part of the $10,000 prize money.
