Style Wars Falls Creek 2012
2-5 September 12, Falls Creek, Australia
Stylewars is a 3-day Slopestyle Jam and street rail event, which has been running now for 10 years. This year sees 50 riders competing for a $50,000 prize fund.
Started originally as a photoshoot super-park session Stylewars has remained very focused on Snowboard lifestyle as well as progression leaving its format very relaxed and all about park sessions – not a ‘2 run a day’ knock out system.
Stylewars is the biggest on snow event in Australia and a real get together for anyone that loves snowboarding; with live music and parties, the event is a small festival and not just a snowboard competition. The event format is designed to find the best slopestyle riders who can maintain top level slopestyle riding over 2 hour jam sessions showing style and trick variety. The finals are judged with an additional judge equivalent done by rider voting for the overall event winner. This makes Stylewars very unique on the World Snowboard Tour a riders judge riders.
28 Stairs closes the event, which is a notorious street rail session at night outside the bar and closing party. 28 Stairs is run in jam format as Stylewars is then narrowed down to 10 riders in the final session. 28 Stairs has seen the world’s best rail kids do things that should not be done on long street stair rails!
