Snowboarding

Snowboarding has become a very exciting discipline. Originally, the competition featured only Giant Slalom and Parallel Giant Slalom for men and women. At the 1999 WU in Poprad-Tatry, Slovakia, “Border Cross” was included into the Universiade programme. Later on, it was renamed “Snowboard Cross”.

Today’s snowboarding competitions are organised as follows: men and women: Parallel Giant Slalom, Half Pipe, Snowboard Cross, Big Air and/or Slope Style.

The running of competitions is always supervised by the FISU Technical Chair for snowboarding and the FIS Technical Delegate, who chair all technical meetings concerned. The women’s Big Air competition was included into the sports programme of the WU in 2009. At the 2011 WU in Erzurum, a new snowboarding event, “Slope Style”, was included into the sports programme. Unfortunately “Slope Style - SBS” suffered from extremely strong wind conditions and was sensibly cancelled for safety reasons.
