Ride the Snake

Ride the snake: the snowboard event with style

 

6th to 8th february 2022

Style. Style. And nothing but style!

From the 6th to 8th February 2022, the snowboarding event "Ride the Snake" is coming to Tignes for three days of festivities where style over substance will be the name of the game. Fluid sequences, aesthetic tricks, goosebump-inducing runs: it is the pleasure of riding together and the excitement of the "perfect" run that will drive the pro snowboarders along THEIR line. The line they have imagined and created with feeling, by playing with the twenty or so gigantic and curvy modules shaped for the occasion on the Palet sector. Objective: to get that "money shot" that will be forever remembered and will make people say for a long time "snowboarding is life!”


The "snow snake" will then be made available to the general public. A unique opportunity to let everyone express their creativity!

 

 

In short, Ride the Snake is:

  • A snake run shaped for the occasion
  • 3 days of festivities
  • Amateur contests (men, women, kids)
  • 2 days of filming with 20 professional snowboarders

JUDGING CRITERIA

In order to decide between the different competitors in the amateur and pro contests, the judges will use the following criteria:

 

 

 

THE IMMORTALISATION OF THE EVENT

With such an event, the objective is of course to take a maximum of photos and videos. The search for the most beautiful image is also what Ride the Snake is all about! With the participation of renowned photographers, the objective of the riders will clearly be to leave their mark on the cameras present on site.

 

 

 

Skate sessions

In addition to Ride the Snake, Tignes is setting up an indoor skatepark at Tignespace of over 500m². An opportunity for everyone to continue riding once the snake has been tamed.

 

 

 

 

Focus on... benjamin ravanel, the snake shaper

For quality contests and stylish tricks from the riders, you need a good run shaper and a perfect snake. And to have a snake that is shaped like never before, we went to find the best shaper in the world, Benjamin Ravanel. A great shaper who is back in Tignes once again after his remarkable stints shaping the X Games from 2010 to 2012 or in 2018 for the construction of a 200m Superpipe!
