March13
Oslo - March 9th, 2013

At the final men's Halfpipe event of the season, The Arctic Challenge, Peetu Piiroinen was crowned World Snowboard Tour Overall Champion in Oslo Vinterpark today. "It feels so incredible of course that I was still able to win the Overall title after Ståle got it last year. It's just so hard nowadays, because the riding level in both Slope and Pipe is getting higher and higher. It's a lot of work, if you want to be good in both disciplines. Ståle and I had a really good battle, unfortunately he didn't make it to the final here at the Arctic Challenge, it would have been nice to battle it out till the end."

Episode 2 – From Straight Lines to Triple Corks – History of Competitive Snowboarding

March11
http://www.worldsnowboardtour.com/historyofsnowboarding

For competitive snowboarding, 2013 has been a year for reminiscing and good times; from legends' sessions at O'Neill Evolution and the historical 20th Anniversary of Air&Style, to a genuine retro look and feel etched all over the Burton European and US Open. We also saw legends like Gian Simmen saying goodbye to the competition scene and moving on to new chapters in their lives.

Why have we felt so nostalgic this season? It might have something to do with the insane amount of progression the sport is currently witnessing; but we would like to stop for a minute, catch our breath and take five from concerning ourselves with the future and dive deeper into the marvellous tale of snowboarding.
