New for the 2019 season, the Hi-Standard Series will offer a “Creative Obstacle” contest for the park crews, the resort staff who is responsible for building and maintaining the snowboard parks. At stops within Canada and the US, each park crew will be given one flat box, one mail box and one Sidestripe rail, encouraging each team to create the most unique course design for “Van Doren Best Trick” segment. The winning park crew from the tour will be outfitted in 2019/20 Vans snowboard boots, Vans MTE footwear and apparel.
In addition to the snowboard jam, Vans will present a shoe customization workshop hosted by a different featured artist in each city. Spectators and family members can enter their personalized designs to win a pair of their very own customized Vans. Fans and competitors can also expect to see familiar faces from the global Vans Snow team throughout the tour.
