Big White welcomes you to their first Invitational Slopestyle hosted by Tom van Steenbergen, July 4th – 7th 2018. The 25 top riders from all over North America and Europe will compete for the Amateur Contest for Bronze and Invitational Slopestyle for Gold in the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour, better known as FMB World Tour. This is the only FMB World Tour Gold Event in North America with 4 wildcard entries allowing for local riders to complete and show off their talent in their own backyard.
There is so much more than amazing biking to enjoy during this event. Live music, beer gardens, food trucks, demos, expos are to name a few. Once the sun goes down on Friday, July 6th, make sure to attend the free outdoor viewing of ‘North of Nightfall’ while sipping on a few refreshments at The Woods beer garden. A special guest, movie director Jeremy Grand, will be in attendance as well.
If you’re a foodie, then you’re in for a treat! There will be lots of food options to please even the pickiest of appetites. Beavertails, Tug 6 Coffee, Okanagan Springs, Elevation 57 Brewery and Okapops Frozen Treats are just to name a few of the vendors that will make an appearance on the slope this weekend. Don’t forget about the fantastic on-mountain favourites, Globe Café and The Woodsbrand, just to name a few. Beer gardens will be open for business by 11am every day to help you start your weekend right.
Remember to bring event essentials to insure the best weekend for you and your crew. Lawn chairs and picnic blankets will be needed in order to kick back and take in the action. With the constantly changing weather patterns this season, be sure to bring proper footwear, sunscreen, and layer up!
If you’re looking for a place to stay over the weekend, look no further than Big White’s new campgrounds located at Black Forest. Set up with public washrooms, fresh water, and picnic tables, and breathtaking views, this campground has the necessities needed for the weekend activities. If camping isn’t your thing, Big White has a range of accommodation options to suit everyone starting from $68/night.
To make Big White’s first Invitational Slopestyle even better, it’s free of charge from the viewing areas at Happy Valley! So come on up to Big White and have some fun!
