Snowsport Scotland has launched a brand new Park & Pipe Triple Crown contest which will be staged first at the Snowfactor indoor snow centre near Glasgow, then on a dry slope and with the final leg  at one of the five ski areas in the Highlands.

The Triple Crown Champion will be determined based on British Snow Tour (BST) points accumulated over the three events. Combined results will determine this year’s overall Scottish Park & Pipe Champion.

The events emerged following a consultation earlier this year with clubs, coaches and facilities involved in Park & Pipe competitions and training programmes to develop a new and improved way to determine the overall Scottish Park & Pipe Champion on an annual basis.

Competitors will have the opportunity to enter into the individual events in the series, by which their points will contribute towards BST rankings. To be in with the chance of winning fantastic prizes, including cash and to be awarded with the title of Scottish Park & Pipe Triple Crown Champion, competitors need to participate in all three of the events.

“With some great sponsors onboard, who will be contributing to the extensive range of awards, cash and prizes that are up for grabs by all competitors, we anticipate that there will be an excellent turnout and we are very much looking forward to awarding the title of Scottish Park & Pipe Triple Crown Champion to a very deserving winner,” Said Graham Mounsey, Snowsport Scotland’s Development Officer.

The Triple Crown competition begins with the first event, The Scottish Indoor Slopestyle Series, to be held on the 10th September at Snowfactor, Braehead.  Potential competitors should register online at www.snowsportscotland.org by 8th September.
