British Snow Tour – Loads of Changes

Just wanted to share this email that came out from Stu Brass today.  I think that this season is starting off in a positive way with some good changes in the British Snow Tour format for competitors.
The jam session warm-up and 3 comp runs should mean more shred time than in the past and I also like the idea of seeded riders running at the end of the session (this will be especially handy for young Katie Ormerod who is ranked first since she normally rides early on in the order due to her young age).  The team also seem to have taken on board the feedback about the kickers in the Big Air comp as they’ve got Damian Doyle heading up all the indoor park builds this year.  The other bonus is that snowboarders don’t have to fork out an additional licence fee to compete this year (saving me £20 that can go on petrol instead!)
