A free day open to all, the World Snowboard Day is a unique opportunity for the whole snowboard community to promote snowboarding as a sport and culture, with the opportunity for people to try out and have fun snowboarding at the beginning of the winter season.
Since its inception in 2006, the WSD has held over 500 events with more than 100,000 participants and the World Snowboard Day has become a reference event in the world winter sports calendar.
Launched and organized by EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association), the WSF (World Snowboard Federation) and Outdoor Sports Valley (Home of the European Outdoor Sports Industry), the World Snowboard Day benefited from 2 important new partners: the SIA association (Snowsports Industries America) for the all American continent and Corepower Asia for China, South Korea and Japan. These partners will enable a great increase in the number of event’s in those Countries, taking the concept truly global.
