WSPL Elite Level Event | World Class Freeski Event
From march 13th till 17th 2021, snowboard and freeski pros from all over the world will gather at Absolut Park for its legendary Spring Battle. With its challenging setup, this innovative event is inciting the riders to give their very best one more time at the end of their contest season: Despite the fact that it has World Snowboarding Elite Level status and is a World Class Freeski event, fun and creativity are still priority at this relaxed jam session.
The format: FollowCam and Best Trick Awards
Different from the usual rush at other events, the riders at Spring Battle have five full days of riding to work on their tricks and get their best run in the bag. Each of them teams up with a followcam filmer or an other rider while GoPro is supplying the necessary cameras and accessories. Each rider's favorite run (displayed on an uncut video clip and handed in until 3pm on Wednesday) will be judged by Wednesday night. The best clips will be shown at the big final show on Wednesday night and judged live in front of the audience.
In addition to the main contest, we are handing out three awards for the best Knuckle Trick, best 540 and best Rail Trick.
Here's a video that explains the Spring Battle
format pretty well:
