Summer is almost gone, and the worldwide snowboarders have only one wish: press the fast forward button to skip autumn and go straight to winter. There is nearly a hundred days left until the World Snowboard Day which will launch the winter season in more than 40 countries all over the world.

As every year, the international snowboard community will mobilize on Sunday, December 19th and give the opportunity to the general public to try out the fun of snowboarding. The event concept is simple: the worldwide federations, schools, clubs, shops, resorts and riders offer during one day a large number of free activities to beginners and advanced snowboarders. In the program: initiations, products testing, contests, pro riders signings, concerts, parties, environmental awareness, etc, there will be activities for everyone and for every age.

Since its creation in 2006, the World Snowboard Day has seen the number of its events multiplied by 4 to reach 139 events in 2009. With about 1900 activities and more than 70,000 participants, the World Snowboard Day has become in only 4 years, an event of reference for the international snowboard community.

This year, the Outdoor Sports Valley joins the EuroSIMA and WSF – organizers of the World Snowboard Day – to offer more surprises that you will discover soon.

In the meantime you can already watch the trailer of this 5th edition on www.world-snowboard-day.com, and join the World Snowboard Day community on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
