That leaves two spots up for grabs with a final male and female rider able to receive an official Natural Selection Tour invite from the Tour’s Nomination Committee and Red Bull.

Course inspection and briefing…

Snowboarding icons including Jake Blauvelt, Manuel Diaz, Danny Davis, Yuka Fujimori, John Jackson, Sammy Luebke, Bode Miller, Mary Rand, Jason Robinson, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and Stale Sandbech have submitted one-minute montages of their best backcountry freestyle riding to prove why the final men’s and women’s spots should be theirs based on progression, creativity, line choice, style, energy, and overall impression. 

We would love to see New Zealand’s own Zoi Sadowski-Synnott as the female wild card…showcasing an impressive bag of tricks and freeriding ability. She’s our pick for the females. Click here to vote for Zoi now.

As for the men…that’s a tough call. That’s a stack list of the best freeriders in the world…who would you pick?

Solid contender – John Jackson.

The event window as mentioned above is kicking off on the 3rd of February and you can watch the whole thing live right here!

Stay tuned as we’ll keep you in the loop on more details and timings around when things kick off!
