Created in 2006 by EuroSIMA and the WSF, this event was conceived by snowboarders for snowboarders. Since 2010 the Outdoor Sports Valley association (OSV) has become an event partner, with SnowSports Industries America (SIA) in North America and CorePower Asia in Asia as regional partners. All of these partnerships provide increased visibility and a broader worldwide presence for World Snowboard Day.

Founded in 1999, EuroSIMA is the European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association (surf, snowboard, skate …). Its role is to federate, defend, educate, promote and develop boardsports and sliding sports in Europe through a wide range of services and competencies (innovation and R&D, training and employment, sustainable development and economic resources). +

The WSF or World Snowboard Federation was created in 2002 by delegates in the snowboard community from 14 countries. The WSF is the only international non-profit organization exclusively working to promote and to develop snowboarding: competitions, instruction, and adaptive education for the disabled. +

The Outdoor Sports Valley association, created in 2010, aims to federate, to represent and to contribute to the development of the outdoor sports industry. Based in Annecy, France, in the heart of one of planet’s most unique playgrounds, OSV spans the Alps from Grenoble to Innsbruck, and encompasses the headquarters of most outdoor industry companies. +

Since 1954 SIA (SnowSports Industries America) has been the referral organization that federates the snow sports industry in the United States. The association’s goal is to contribute to the development of the industry and the practice of snow sports. Supporting WSD was a natural choice. +
