THE VENUES

BIG AIR CHUR FIS SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP (SUI) – 21 OCT

Big Air Chur set a whole new standard upon its debut as a World Cup stop back in 2021/22, and since then the season-opening competition has done nothing but get bigger, better and wilder. With some 30,000 people set to pass through the gates over the course of the weekend, a music festival atmosphere, and the biggest jump ever assembled in Switzerland towering over it all in the Grisons Rhine Valley, the Big Air Chur is set to once again set the season off on a high.

BEIJING FIS SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP (CHN) – 30 NOV-02 DEC

Stop number two on this season’s big air World Cup takes us back to what is arguably the most striking venue in all of snowsports, the world’s first (and only) permanent, purpose-built big air venue in Beijing (CHN). The site of indelible memories from the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, the Beijing big air venue is without parallel in the world. Don’t miss this one, because it’s almost a guarantee that we’ll see the highest competition level of the season there in China.

EDMONTON STYLE EXPERIENCE FIS SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP (CAN) – 08-09 DEC

Fresh on the scene last season, the Edmonton Style Experience made an immediate impact, with a revolutionary jump design set inside the massive Commonwealth Stadium creating one of the most epic settings yet for World Cup big air competition. With some of last season’s kinks ironed out (more speed WILL be available!) and an even bigger, rowdier Canadian crowd sure to be on hand, Edmonton is set to take its place as a season highlight in 2023/24.

VISA BIG AIR COPPER MOUNTAIN FIS SNOWBOARD WORLD CUP (USA) – 13-16 DEC

The big air World Cup season is set to close at the VISA Big Air Copper Mountain, where the crystal globes will end up in the hands of the winter’s finest riders. Copper has been bringing the goods year in and year out since 2012/13, and last season was no exception. In welcoming big air action to its slopes for the first time since the 2017/18 season, Copper reminded us all how much we love a good ol’ fashioned on-piste booter, and we’re stoked to return to “The Athletes’ Mountain” again to finish off the 2022/23 season in style.
