Thousands of snowboard enthusiasts were able to discover for free the joys of snowboarding on Sunday, December 30th, 2012 for the 7th edition of World Snowboard Day.
Every year, since 2006, this free celebration day dedicated to snowboarding and its culture has launched the winter season.
This year, 152 events were organized in 35 countries.
The program for World Snowboard Day 2012 included First-timer snowboard lessons, demonstrations, competitions, gear tests, film showings, barbecues, concerts, Carnival, photo contests, evening parties or simply going out with friends to ride.
A day full of excitement and energy that would not have been nearly as successful without the entire international snowboard community (snow resorts, clubs, shops, schools, federations, riders, associations...) rallying together, the support of Snowsports Industries America, Core Power Asia and the World Snowboard Tour, and the charismatic personality of Anne-Flore Marxer, Freeride World Champion and official ambassador for World Snowboard Day 2012.
Event organizers EuroSIMA, the World Snowboard Federation and Outdoor Sports Valley would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all partners and events organizers for the hard work, time and energy they once again dedicated to this day.
For this new edition three new countries joined the adventure: Argentina, Mexico and Mongolia, demonstrating once again the community aspect and international element of snowboarding.
