The sensation is perfect. Burton confirmed the participance of Shaun White at this years Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride in Saas-Fee. This Swatch TTR Four (4) Star Event gets
an extra superstar.

After the Burton European Open in Laax this is White’s second visit in Europe this year ever. After posting five exceptional results from top-level competitions on the Tour, Shaun will be looking to improve his end-of-season ranking by earning his 6th and final result in Saas-Fee. Nevertheless, Kevin Pearce (USA) will remain the TTR Tour Champion following an incredible season that lead up to the Tour defining, and Champion crowning event, the 6-Star Burton US Open.

While the Swatch TTR 4-Star Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride guarantees electrifying riding and shredding on all fronts, the revved up madness will continue with legendary parties in the Popcorn and Living Room Bar with titillating beats and sounds from DJ Stylewarz, Igor Podladtchikov and Scott Sullivan and the Kin.

Snowboard Guide rating 7 out of 10 “Sass-Fee is a great summer snowboard destination, but because of it's extremely high altitude it can be sketchy in winter. Local services are great with a really good vibe in the town.”
