Every day, SNOWBOARDER is barraged with people asking us if we have contest dates. Each time the question is asked we give the simple reply, “Actually, we prefer to compete stag.” To date, not one person has gotten this joke. This just goes to show how seriously some people take contests. The following dates are tentative, so please research the appropriate event and/or resort websites for the latest contest news:
