The very first look at the all-new Natural Selection Alaska venue and riding from the Tour’s third stage is out now. Twelve riders of the world’s best all-around snowboarders including Travis Rice, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, Elena Hight and Ben Ferguson compete in the third and final stage of the 2023 Natural Selection Tour, the Natural Selection Alaska presented by Backcountry. With Mother Nature opening up one prime day in the window, the riders race from Valdez into a coliseum style venue for sunup to sundown, head-to-head competition.
Eight men and four women qualified out of the Natural Selection DUELS to compete first in Revelstoke, and now in Alaska, representing all disciplines of elite snowboarding – halfpipe, slopestyle, big mountain freeride, and backcountry freestyle. On the women’s side Kimmy Fasani (USA), Elena Hight (USA), Hailey Langland (USA), and Zoi Sadowski-Synnott (NZL) start with semi-finals in Alaska. Jared Elston (USA), Dustin Craven (CAN), Mikey Ciccarelli (CAN), Ben Ferguson (USA), Mikkel Bang (NOR), Blake Paul (USA), Travis Rice (USA) and Chris Rasman* (CAN) meet first in the quarterfinals, before dropping into a two-heat semi-final and final.
